The Stamps and Postal History of Australasia & Oceania

From Cocos Island and Christmas Island to the west and Samoa and Tonga to the east and from New Guinea in the north to the southerly tip of New Zealand, stamp collectors have a wide range of chiefly British & French Colonial islands and of course the stamps issued by Australia and New Zealand. New Guinea including her WWI overprinted German and Australian stamps, Papua with her Lakatoi Canoes, the wonderfully colourful & complex Australian States and the famous 1913 Kangaroos daring not to depict the King! Tropical islands beloved of brave missionary’s which a century later became fierce wartime killing grounds so far away from Europe. So many lovely stamps, so much atmospheric postal history.
