A is for Aden and Z is for Zanzabar

A is for Aden and Z is for Zanzibar... Now what is between? For the world wide classical era philatelist and stamp collector, a country specific philatelic survey is offered by the blog author, Jim Jackson, with two albums: Big Blue, aka Scott International Part 1 (checklists available), and Deep Blue, aka William Steiner's Stamp Album Web PDF pages. In addition, "Bud" offers commentary and a look at his completely filled Big Blue. Interested? So into the Blues...

Anjouan - Bud's Big Blue

Anjouan in Bud's Big Blue
Bud's Big Blue
Bud's Observations
Only the French Navigation and Commerce were issued for Anjouan. Interesting cancels are scarce. The 1912 overprints were used more widely than just Anjouan.

Census: seven in BB spaces, seven tip-ins.

Jim's Observations
Curiously, The country is not in the 1997 edition. The 1941, 1947 and 1969 editions DO have the stamp spaces included. I suspect the '97 edition simply forgot to include Anjouan.

Update: The '97 edition recently sold by Amos includes a full coverage page of Anjouan (30 spaces). I suspect they added the page from the Scott Specialty albums.
