I am the editor of the Unitrade Specialized Catalogue of Canadian Stamps.
The 2008 edition was sent to the printer on August 19, 2007 and began shipping
from Unitrade Associates on September 25, 2007.
I do not sell the catalogue. Please contact the publisher (Unitrade
Associates) directly or your favourite stamp dealer. I have also noticed listings on e-Bay.
Here are some highlights:
many/most of the illustrations in the following sections have been re-scanned to
give better quality: Officially Sealed, Wildlife Habitat Conservation, Prisoner
of War Free Franks, Canada Post Souvenir Articles, early postal stationery
consistent numbering of booklet singles (including numbering those that had not
been previously numbered). This was done by adding a lower case "s" to the end
of the booklet pane number. Note that only non-Scott numbered booklet singles
have been designated this way.
continue to add more images of specific varieties (when made available to us)
continue to have consistency throughout the listings (this will continue with
future editions) and correct the annoying typographical errors (some of which
have been around for many years!). We cannot guarantee that we have found all of
them ... but we will correct any that are reported to us.
uncut press sheets have been summarized (and several illustrated) on their own
Special event covers, custom and commemorative envelopes are listed in the
Unitrade for the first time
to save space, stamp images from Sc # 606 have been reduced to 80% of actual
Topical index of stamp subjects has been added (to be expanded in future
a few more definitive checklist tables have been added
the price remains the same as the previous three year's editions: CAN$42.95
Despite all of the additions, only 16 more pages were
added to the catalogue (it is now 608 pages).
- we need your help:
For future editions (preferably the 2009), we
would love to get new images of the following...
IMAGES: on my "to do" list is to improve the images in the following sections.
If you have all (or nearly all) of these stamps, and live in Canada, please
- Large Queens
- Air Post Semi-Official issues
- early Newfoundland
- any constant plate variety that is not yet illustrated
