Rainer's Peruvian Local's Pages


Still THE book for these issues is Historia Filatelica de la Guerra Pacifica, by Angel Puppo, published in 1935. With some luck, a copy can be obtained at auction but it is a difficult to get book.

Peru Departamentales, a specialist catalogue of (for me) unknown origin. On 48 pages in Spanish language every stamp which all varieties are listed and priced.

Philatelic History of the War between Peru and Chile 1879-1884, by W. G. Howland, published in 1966 from the American Philatelic Society. A small booklet of 28 pages, covering the philatelic history of the war in a very good and compressed form.
