Handbook

Many handbook PDFs have been updated with new items and corrections (February 25, 2020) and there are also new handbooks in the list. The new handbooks have the image New Handbook next to the title. All of the individual added/updated items since the last upload (January 1, 2020) are in the 2020 Supplement (all new items cataloged during 2020).

The handbook has been in the making since 1978. Read the full story of A Philatelic Handbook Adventure

Below is a table with the current handbook PDFs (582). Along with the country and issue handbook PDFs below, there is also a Cover, an Introduction, and and an Acknowledgments. This is a work in progress and will always be a work in progress as malaria stamp collectors will always be finding new items and hopefully be willing to share information and images with the editors:

Larry Fillion, 130 Arlington Street, Acton, MA, 01720 (malariastamps@yahoo.com).
