This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1903 edition. Excerpt: ...3d. is printed in the colours of is., olive green and black, and the 4d. in the colours of the 2S., brown and black; consequently, the colour of the is. has been changed to red brown with head in slate blue, and the 2s. to orange with head in slate blue. A further change has been made in the inscriptions. In the first series all the values id. to 2s. had the word "Postage" on one side of the design, and " Revenue " on the other side, whilst the higher values, i.e., the 2s. 6d., 5s., and 10s., had the word "Postage " on each side. In the new stamps the is. and 2s. have the word "Postage" on each side, instead of "Postage" and "Revenue" as before. The current series, therefore, now stands as follows: --jd., green, head black, postage and revenue. id., scarlet,, 2d., purple, 3d., olive green,, ., 4d., brown, , 6d., orange, , I., red brown, slate blue, postage. 2s., orange, ., . 2S. 6d., black, mauve, 5s., mauve, ., black, tos, purple,, Trinidad.--This colony seems to be going in for some very ugly changes. The latest is the current Britannia design of the is. changed in colour from green with name in red to black on yellow paper with name in blue, which makes one of the ugliest combinations we have seen. Up to date the issues of the new series are as follows: --1 cent, green, Franklin. 2 cents, carmine, Washington. 3 cents, violet, Jackson. 4 cents, brown, Grant. 5 cents, dark blue, Lincoln. 8 cents, black, Martha Washington. 10 cents, brown, Webster. 13 cents, sepia, Harrison. Messrs. Perkins, Bacon & Co. inform me that I was wrong in attributing the designing and engrav, ing of the handsome 3 c. Liberia to A Correction, more
