The Large Hermes Heads of Greece—Deciphering These Magnificent Classical Stamps

This luxurious book is the result of several years of systematic study. In a concise yet understandable and structured way, it brings together much of the philatelic knowledge regarding the Large Hermes Heads—the first postage stamps of Greece, officially issued from 1861 to 1886.

It is a detailed, large-sized introductory book in English aimed specifically at helping the stamp collector identify and classify these magnificent classical stamps. The ample and oversized photographic material captures much of the richness and varieties of their printings, with extra care to ensure that color subtleties are rendered as accurately as possible, given the technical constraints. 
It is published under the auspices of the Hellenic Philatelic Society, the oldest and largest philatelic society in Greece, which has not only closely associated its name with the Large Hermes Heads but even more so with research and spread of philatelic knowledge related to Greek stamps.
