The Scott Classic Specialized Catalogue of Stamps and Covers 1840-1940 is the primary source for the issues of the first century of philately. This unique volume provides further insight and greatly expanded information on early worldwide issues compared to the Scott Standard Postage Stamp Catalogues.
Expanded listings ranging from color varieties to paper varieties to individual never-hinged issues are included in the Scott Classic Specialized Catalogue of Stamps and Covers 1840-1940. The Scott Classic Specialized Catalogue is also a major source for listings and values for covers, multiples (including strips and blocks of four) for select countries, stamps without gum as well as used pairs.

- New on-cover listings have been added to the listings for Alexandretta, Bahrain and Lebanon. The complete list of countries with on-cover values is presented in the catalog introduction.
