A catalogue of British commercial overprints

Gianni Sironi has created a catalogue of British commercial overprints! The files at are in PDF form for easy printing. The image on the left is a sample page (the cover of chapter S).

I've been asked about the Bonney & Lane catalogues that were made years ago. Apparently those catalogues were created in a type of software that cannot be read these days. I'm told that there have been attempts to covert the data, but these were unsuccessful.
