From the StampShow Judges’ Critique:
An outstanding work of depth and wide interest. Clear, easily readable – even compelling in some sections – and thoroughly reliable. A very high level of scholarship and new information leading to new conclusions. This will be the standard reference for a very long time.


From the Ashbrook Citation:
Exhaustively researched and masterfully written, this work will serve as a lofty standard for future postal history writers.


From The Collectors Club Philatelist Review (Charles Snee):
The history of Hawaii suffuses Gregory’s philatelic narrative, making for a rich, rewarding experience for the reader.

Explore early Hawaii history and postal history with Hawaii Foreign Mail to 1870 – a boxed set of three hardcover volumes.  Generous color illustrations and clear, compelling copy on 1,233 golden-edged pages bring the era to life, making each volume entertaining to read.  You’ll also gain a broad understanding of the pioneer stampless covers to or from fur and sandalwood traders, whalers and missionaries, the use of Hawaii and United States postage stamps on Hawaii mail and the postage rates and markings to 1870. 


Maps and cover illustrations detail the ocean and transcontinental routes Hawaii mail traveled with other mail to and from the Pacific Basin.  A comprehensive 1800-70 list of vessels going between Hawaii and the Americas, Europe, Asia and Australia is included as an appendix, making this in invaluable resource for determining authenticity on postal history of the period.


Decades in the making, Hawaii Foreign Mail to 1870 is the author’s life work and the first major work on this islands’ philately in 50 years.  Gregory has expanded the work of Meyer-Harris, the previous authority, and uncovered new evidence that leads to new conclusions.  Students and collectors of 19th century Pacific Basin postal history will find this work is essential – historians will enjoy going in-depth into this unique period in time.

    On July 1, 1847, the first US postage stamps went on sale.  The 5¢ issue of 1847 (US #1) features a portrait of Benjamin Franklin, the man responsible for organizing America's postal service back in the 1700s.  Postal clerks used scissors to cut the stamps from sheets, as perforations weren't in use yet.  Today, US #1 is a valued piece of American postal history and a lucky find in any condition.
