The Stamps of Baranya
by Jenö Szabó-Antal
Reprint edited and annotated by
Christopher Brainard and Anthony Müller.
Translated from Hungarian by Anthony Müller
Society for Hungarian Philately
original work was published in the Bélyeggyüjtö
in 1939. In the elapsed 60 years, this work was quoted, transcribed,
and translated by countless authors in the philatelic press. New
insights as to the nature, the origin, and the variety of these
overprints have also emerged during this time. Most importantly,
the editors wanted to overcome the inherent limitations of the
Hungarian language posed by the original reference work. What
emerged from their efforts was a quality document written in a
major language of the Western World (English), clarified and updated
with annotations to remove previously entrenched, confusing terminology,
and illustrated with high resolution, color reproductions of stamps,
covers, and postal stationery. A major accomplishment was to correct
the terminology for the two presses used for the overprinting
of the First Baranya series. Findings on this subject were first
published in previous issue of The News. The editors carefully
reproduced all of the original illustrations. Whenever new material
was incorporated, it is distinguishable by a red border to indicate
that it was not an original part of Szabó-Antal's work.
The 'old' and the 'new' information complement each other superbly.

"The NEWS of Hungarian Philately"
society was founded on the principal as an educational resource
as one of its primary goals. A longtime project in support of
that goal has finally come to fruition. Hardbound editions of
the Society publication "THE NEWS of Hungarian Philately"
(published since the establishment of the SHP in 1970) are now
available for sale. Each volume is done in a dark wine garnet
shade, simulated leather appearance with gold lettering denoting
the title of "The News of Hungarian Philately" on the
spine, the volume numbers, and the years it covers. Each volume
represents a 3-year time frame. Early volumes could only be reproduced
via copying, but are still presentable. Later volumes are produced
using actual copies when they were initially issued and just put
together in the respective proper sequence. At this time no indexing
has been done on subjects or titles, but serves as a future project
for easier reference of material.
why would someone want this? Individuals that collect philatelic
material are always seeking complete sets of journals on certain
topics. What better way to have that data collected than in bound
editions? Individuals that specialize in certain fields also often
can only find data in older publications and we hope this serves
that community. Lastly, for neatness but quick access when needed,
these book-like publications can sit on your reference library
shelf instead of just a stack of the quarterly journals in a corner
of your stamp room. How about buying them for a gift to a philatelist,
to your local library (take a tax donation!) or to some other
worthy cultural center, youth club or similar worthy recipients?
following volumes are available for sale.
Each book is individually priced at $30.00 or you can
