Title: Ngo’s Catalogue of Philippine Republic Stamps & Postal Stationeries 2014 Vols. 1 and 2
Author: Dr. Ngo Tiong Tak
Synopsis: Since the original catalogue published in 1997 and the four supplements sold out several years ago, there is a need to update this catalogue, to provide collectors of Philippine Republic stamps and postal stationeries a complete and accurate listing covering all issues since the first set of 1946. This is a more specialized edition – not only the basic stamps are listed and priced in mint and used conditions, perforation and watermark varieties, as well as paper types that can be identified by the naked eyes, without the aid of ultraviolet light are included also. This edition is in two volumes, since there are now so many pages. Volume 1 has the main stamp listing, the Mosden issues, a Specimen checklist and other appendices listing in the different first day cancels other than the one from the Manila Central Post Office, numbers of the first day cancels made for most issues up to 1966, printing and overprinting costs for most issues from 1956 to 1966, dates of destruction of dies, cylinders and printing plates for issues of the early period up to 1966, and known plate numbers on Republic stamps, plus printers’ imprints on sheet margins. Lastly, a glossary of philatelic terms is included. Volume 2 will have sections for the mini sheets and miniature sheets; Errors, Freaks and Oddities (EFOs); postal stationeries including postal cards, airletter sheets, embossed and prestamped envelopes; commemorative covers and lastly, a comprehensive subject and design index.
