The Collectors Club of Chicago
Since 1968, the Collectors Club of Chicago has
had a commitment to provide the philatelic
community with publications that represent
important contributions to our base of
philatelic knowledge. The very first book,
New York Foreign Mail Cancellations, 1870-1876,
was the work of two of our members, Arthur Van
Vlissingen and Morrison Waud. Their work became
the seminal work on New York foreign mail
cancellations and the first major work on the
subject since Edward Milliken’s 31-page pamphlet
Postage Due - The United States Postage Due
Essays, Proofs and Specimens 1879-1986
is the 24th book to be published by the
Collectors Club of Chicago. This book presents
the first comprehensive look at the spectrum of
Postage Due essays, proofs, and specimens
ranging from the first Postage Due stamps of
1879 to the last series, which was discontinued
in 1986. It will stand as a companion book to
George Arfken’ s 1991 work,
Postage Due – The United States Large Numeral
Postage Due Stamps 1879-1894, which was also
published by the club.
