Welcome to the Blue Mauritius Research Companion

review of Morgan, Helen, Blue Mauritius: The Hunt for the World's Most Valuable Stamps (2006)
June 2007, p. 22

Morgan has an easy conversational style and makes sparing use of technical terms, yet her erudition is evident in the extensive footnotes and bibliography. An archivist herself, she has made good use of archives in Mauritius, France and England, as well as a great range of books, philatelic magazines and newspapers...

This handsome book, with its well-designed dust jacket, will be of special interest to philatelists. It should also appeal to the legions of lapsed stamp collectors and anyone who is intrigued by the whole phenomenon of collecting.
