The Stamps of Jammu and Kashmir appeared in two volumes (details below). The 1900 volume treats the stamps of the Old Period, together with an account of later reprints and forgeries of that material. The second volume of 1901 updates the first volume and proceeds with the New Rectangulars. An Appendix to the first volume by Capt. Godfrey concerns the earlier postal history as recorded in Persian by the first Postmaster of Kashmir.

Note: Masson’s “1 anna” circular has long been understood to be 4 annas (= ¼ rupee) and vice versa. The interchange has been made throughout the text without comment, but where for reasons the interchange has not been made, notice is given. Masson’s term “originals” means ‘on cover’. And “superfluous” issues refers to what are usually known as the Special Printings of 1874-76.
