State Stamps in Brusden White Stamp Catalogues

StatesThe 1988 Loose-Leaf Catalogue released by Brusden-White did not have a Section A.  A subsequent 1990 update added the missing Section A, entitled "Australian States". 

A booklet entitled "Australian Colonies" was later published by Brusden-White, that included the information from the 1990 update.

The Brusden-White's  Australian Colonies / States is a simplified listing when compared to the specialist Stanley Gibbons' Catalogue (see below); but is more detailed than the Stanley Gibbons' Simplified catalogue and the Seven Seas Stamp Catalogues (see below).

States The 2004 Kangaroos edition includes State stamps covering the Early Federal Period from 1901 to 1912.  This is an extremely specialised listing of the stamps of this period.






State Stamps in Stanley Gibbons Stamp Catalogues

States States States Stanley Gibbons is the de-facto reference standard for Australia's Colonial State stamps. 

A detailed specialist list is part of the Stanley Gibbons "Commonwealth Stamp Catalogue, Australia", as well as their "Commonwealth & British Empire Stamps 1840-1970".

A simplified list is available in Stanley Gibbons "Commonwealth Simplified Catalogue".  The stamp types and stamp reference numbers are identical to those in the specialist editions.


State Stamps in Seven Seas Stamp Catalogues

States States Seven Seas Stamps included State stamps in their "Australasian Stamp Catalogue", and their published "The Australian Colonies Stamp Catalogue", which is somewhat more detailed than their general catalogue.

Both catalogues use common Stamp numbers but use different type numbers.  These catalogues were popular for simplified collections, probably due to the availability of the Seven Seas Hingless Album Leaves.



State Stamps in other Stamp Catalogues

States States Several other catalogues are or have been available that included Colonial stamps.  These include Renniks "Stamps of Australia" and Comprehensive's "Colour Catalogue of Australian Stamps".
