Philatelic Books and Publications

Scouts on Stamps

A Bibliography compiled by
T.P. McDermott

At the SOSSI (Scouts On Stamps Society International) meeting in San Francisco in conjunction with Pacific 97, Gottfried Steinmann of Germany pointed out the need for a bibliography of philatelic books or publications on Scouts on Stamps. Since I'm interested in literature and now have a computer which could be of assistance, I have started on the project.

Below is a list of what is known to me. It is broken down as to country where published, and type of publication. The language is English, unless noted otherwise.
A list of publications that are still in print, that is, still available from the publisher can be linked here.

Can you or some of your friends help in this project by corrections or supplying additional information especially regarding publications from your country or area?
