The Stanley Gibbons India catalogue lists and prices the stamps of India from the earliest issues of Sind Province (1852) and the East India Company (1854-64) up to the beginning of 2017, to the level of detail familiar to users of the Part 1 British Commonwealth listings.
The catalogue includes details of Indian stamps used abroad, with fully priced listings in several cases, also the stamps of Indian Expeditionary and Custodian forces overseas and the issues of the Indian Convention and Feudatory states.
Major plate flaws, watermark varieties, shades, official stamps and booklets are all listed.
