N.d. (ca. 2001?). Appears to be the first edition. Text tribute to Diana, Princess of Wales, 105 First Day Covers, plus 2 sets of uncancelled commemorative stamps with an attached textual memorial commentary--one from the Island of Nevis with 9 stamps, all portraits; the other from Cambodia with 8 portrait stamps and a printed memorial tribute over the name of King Norodom Sihanouk. Thick 4to/27.5cm. Padded decorated 3-ring loose leaf leatherette binder gilt, 108 pages each one enclosed in plastic protectors Near Fine. This large collection of philatelic memorials seems to be proof of an unusually widespread international public affection for this short-lived but iconic member of the British royal family who lived from 1961 to 1997. The number of small, even tiny, nations participating philatelically in the tribute, some so small as to be almost unknown to citizens of larger countries, e.g., Tival, Comoros, Tokelau, Penrhyn, Canouan, Bequia, Niuafo'ou, Grenada Grenadine, Kiribati, Mustique, Nauru, Norfolk Island, Vanuatu and Aitutaki, is rather amazing. Each cover page has a descriptive blurb on the country with an inset map highlighting the country on an outline map of the continent it is located in. There are a few multiples of countries such as the United Kingdom which has four separate pages, each with a different portrait of Diana. Scarce copy of the original full 107 items.
