CHINA 1878-1949 SCOTT/MA/CHAN CATALOG CORRELATION INCLUDING JAPANESE OCCUPATION OF CHINA, SHANGHAI-TREATY PORTS, AND MANCHUKUO by Ralph Weil with Michael Rogers. 2006, second edition, Softbound. At last, a China catalogue number correlation which helps every collector who uses Scott, Ma or Chan catalogues. Its three sections offer a Scott/Ma/Chan correlation; a Chan/Scott/Ma correlation; and a Ma/Scott/Chan Correlation. While the sequences which Scott, Ma, and Chan follow in organizing their material are logical, each uses different criteria. Thus, matching Scott, Ma, and Chan numbers can be most time-consuming. Our catalogue correlation is effort-free and most helpful; we use it every time we work on China! Free Shipping in US
