Princely States Report premiered in Fall 2000 with a focus on philately* of the princely states of India, known by stamp collectors as the "convention" and "feudatory" states. During our first year of publication, it became clear that general history and numismatics** were also of great importance among Indian States enthusiasts. Two general history articles were published in our first year, and our first numismatic article appears in the current issue (Fall 2001). Our content is still primarily philatelic, but readers can expect more general and numismatic articles in future.

Stamps of India, the publishers of websites, and a digital weekly Stamps of India Collectors Companion, have recently taken over this wonderful site founded by David Heppel and Ron Rice; and plan to publish the next issue, # 5, very soon.

*Philately - The study of postage and revenue stamps and their history (pr. fi'lat''uh-lee).
**Numismatics - The study of coins, medals and currency and their history. (pr. noo'miz-ma"tics).
