A.C. Roessler's Canadiana
A.C. Roessler’s Canadiana, 2011 by Dickinson, Gary. A compilation with colour illustrations of the many areas of Canadian philately touched by this prolific cover cachet designer and printer. Spiral, 62 pp.
A.C. Roessler’s Canadiana by Gary Dickinson, is the result of many years of studying and collecting Canadian covers bearing cachets, not only First Day Covers but also those printed for commercial First Flights and other events such as Newfoundland joining Confederation in 1949.
Gary recognized that Roessler, though sometimes spoken of in less than positive terms because he was so prolific, had made a significant contribution to Canadian philately and decided to record Roessler’s work in one volume. Gary is the author of many articles on cacheted covers in BNA Topics and is also the Editor of the newsletter of the BNAPS First Day Cover Study Group.
