Squared Circle Postmarks of Canada, 6th edition, January 2020
Prepared by the BNAPS Squared Circle Study Group. Edited by Rick Friesen.

This 6th edition of the handbook builds upon the 5th edition published in 2001. The handbook is organized according to hammer type and province. In over 680 pages, it provides an exhaustive treatment of each hammer: period of use, time marks, indicia information, stamp issues on which the hammer is found, rarity factors, and illustrations of hammer usage. Section 1 of the handbook provides an introduction to these fascinating postmarks.

The data for this census comes from auction catalogues dating back to 1960, Internet auctions such as eBay, philatelic literature, exhibits, dealer stocks, personal communications from fellow collectors, and the author's collection.
