Scots on Stamps A remarkable, intensely researched & beautifully written up collection of stamps & covers in 23 volumes incl an entire volume on Robert Burns! Many of the names will be familiar such as Macadam of road building fame & Alexander Fleming (penicillin), but there are many much more obscure & astutely picked out like a footballer in the third row of a team photo on a stamp of St Vincent! Then there are scenes from Shakespeare's Macbeth along with the Antigua & Barbuda SG 3164 portrait of the actual Macbeth of Scotland reigning 1040-1057, David Tennant (screen name of David John McDonald), the 10th Dr Who of the TV series, Flora MacDonald of The Jacobite Rebellion of 1745 on a Benham silk cover... you get the flavour. Incls a volume of "Scots and Philately" which was used in research. Viewing will certainly impress or bewilder! (1000's of items on approx. 1000 pages)
