The second volume in the series Maltese Picture Postcards: The Definitive Catalogue details the early period of the divided-back postcards published mostly in Malta between the years 1904 and 1914, and beyond. This second volume catalogues over 1,630 different cards and incorporates over 900 other images detailing amongst others the imprints and backs of cards. Practically all recorded postcards published in this period have been reproduced in full colour. This second volume covers publishers whose initials are from A to G. The third volume will cover publishers with initials H to Z.
The visual memory of Malta and Gozo, its people and customs are once again being captured in this detailed catalogue of early Maltese postcards. This work is of particular interest to postcard and Melitensia collectors, to scholars of the British and French fleets in the Mediterranean in the first two decades of the twentieth century, and to current and former students of St Aloysius’ College.
