Burma Independence Army & Japanese Occupation of Burma - Mint Envelopes

The following envelopes are issues of the Burma Independence Army and the Japanese Postal 
Administration during the occupation of Burma.  They were issued between June of 1942 and 
July 1943.  The basic envelopes are the One Anna Burma envelope of 1939.  I have not 
distinguished between envelope colors. However, some of the envelopes are different shades
and perhaps the two different types of the 1939 basic envelope.  All envelopes are  mint 
and measure 4 3/4 x 3 3/4 in (12.2 x 9.5 cm).  On all envelopes the back flaps are sealed.
The numbers listed below are mine and not a catalogue number.

Accompanying the book is an 11 page English language pamphlet that discusses the early foreign post offices in Japan. The book presents philatelic material (covers and stamps) from Ishikawa's award winning philatelic collection of foreign mail and post offices (British, United States and France) operating in Japan from the 1860s through the 1880s. Numerous covers (franked envelopes) and canceled stamps are presented in color with descriptive titles. A key reference for this very rare material. The first cover pictured in the book is an official (Public Business) cover from Commodore Perry aboard the Susquehanna with a letter dated May 23, 1853. This letter would have been written while Perry was en route to Okinawa (arriving May 26) from China.

An invaluable philatelic history resource regarding mail out of Japan from 1859-1879. The majority of mail processed through the American mail system established in Japan only bears cancels indicating month and day - no year. This monograph compiles the various Pacific crossings from Japan to the US during this 20 year period. Ship names, ports of departure, dates of departure and date of arrival in San Francisco are provided. Generally these early outbound covers from Japan to (or via) America will carry some marking indicating the ship that carried that mail. With this resource and minimum amount of additional information found on the letter (cover) it is often possible to date mail during this period. The first ship listed is the Brig Krell which sailed from Hakoodate on September 22, 1858 and the last ship is SS Belgic that departed Yokohama on December 30, 1879.

The cancels are categorized by date, type, office and color. The cancels cover the period from 1875 forward. Where known, the earliest and latest use of the cancel are reported. In the very early cancels this information is not actually on the cancel so the information is critical for dating stamps and covers with these cancels. Cancels used in China, Taiwan (Formosa) and Korea are listed as well as the various prefectures of Japan to include Okinawa. Values or scarcity rating are not assigned in the listings.
