early catalog

An early stamp catalog devoted solely to the Philippines is the one published in 1904 titled The Postage Stamps of the Philippines.

As noted on the title page it includes "a List of Telegraph and Revenue Stamps Issued Under Spanish Dominion."

This illustrated work by J. Murray Bartels, F. Apthorp Foster and Captain F. L. Palmer covers the issues of the Spanish era, revolutionary period and early American administration.

There are no prices given but it's still referenced by Philippine collectors today who are into philatelic research.
