Ikanni Tales : A Study of the One Anna Lithographed Label 1854-55

This extensively illustrated publication of 334 pages, covers all aspects of the one anna lithographed stamp of India 1854-55. The Author Gautam Rohatgi, is a lifelong philatelist, and has spent many years researching this classic Indian stamp, with this account being the result of his adventures with the stamp. Thus it contains a few poems and anecdotes as well as the erudite philatelic writing that would be expected in any serious study. The chapter headings themselves give an idea of the breadth of the subject matter.

The book notes most of the existent research previously known, and is brought up to date. It also contains the author's personal research, most notably on the aspect of the mysterious sub-stones, and proposes an interesting new methodology of study, with a more unorthodox ‘backward engineered’ approach! A monumental contribution, it also deals with the postal usage, offering much information about the postal history of the period. Additionally, the entire work is prevalent with explanations of every possible facet of the lithographic printing process, detailing all its inherent idiosyncrasies and affecting issues.

Printed on high quality paper the book weighs 1.75 kg. The publication if not sent to the UK, might be sent directly from the publishers in India, depending on the location of each buyer. It can also be ordered directly from the author in India
