The Italian South Atlantic Airline (L.A.T.I) - Second Edition

by Martyn Cusworth

(published 2022)

 This book brings together all the known information on this important short-lived airmail service.

 In the ten years since the publications of the first edition of this book, Martyn has vigorously pursued his research into the subject, making contact with other collectors, scouring auction catalogues and adding to his database of known covers. Large sections of the text has been revised or completely rewritten and new sections and rate tables have been added.

 Also many new and improved illustrations have been incorporated so that now over 300 covers and nearly 120 cachets are shown in full colour.


 The book also describes how and why the service came into existence, and the circumstances of its eventual demise. It illustrates the publicity material and other special stationery used on the service, and it shows all the special directional cachets that were used, organised country by country.

The book is 176 A4 pages, wire spiral bound and is priced at £35

(plus P&P UK = £4,    Europe = £12,     USA = £25,      AUS/NZ = £23   and    ROW = £20):-
