review of Morgan, Helen, Blue Mauritius: The Hunt for the World's Most Valuable Stamps (2006)
April 2007, p. 34

Helen Morgan's book… is a fascinating tale about this delicate little slip of blue-inked paper. She traces the history of the surviving stamps, attempting to reconstruct their origins with a fair degree of supporting evidence. Though at times the same stamps crossing the paths of the same dealers can be a little confusing, the story is so whimsical and the author so effective in capturing the times and places of the past that it hardly matters. This was a wonderful read.
