The NEW Confederate States of America Catalog & Handbook of Stamps and Postal History a major success.

The much anticipated update, expansion and re-write of August Dietz classical work on Confederate Postal History has gone from "brand new" to "out of print" in only three months.  This six year endeavor on the part of the Confederate Stamp Alliance and its members has been a tremendous success. Congratulations to the editors Patricia A. Kaufmann, Francis J. Crown and Jerry S. Palazolo and to the many other members who contributed to this important contribution to Confederate philately.

For an illustrated and far more in depth look at both the history of prior catalogs and the marvelous changes in this 2012 edition, see A 21st Century Confederate Catalog.
