I had purchased Peter Wilhelm's excellent catalogs on Mercury and on Gemini several years ago. I tried to order his Apollo catalog a couple of weeks ago, writing to the address on the front of the earlier catalogs, and my letter got returned for insufficient address. Does anyone have a current address for Peter Wilhelm?

Yes, Peter Wilhelm has a new address:

Jeschkenweg 23
84478 Waldkraiburg
Germany

Since you're at it, you could also ask for his Skylab catalogue...

Thanks Jurgen!

Is he working a Skylab catalog, or are we trying to goad him into doing one?

He's definitely working on it. It might even be out already.

Catalogues of space covers documenting the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo and Skylab programme, respectively.

Wilhelm's catalogs are ~25 page monographs with some black and white graphics. They aren't as comprehensive as McMahan or Bulver, but are good complements to those catalogs.

Once I get a dialog going with Mr. Wilhelm, I'll ask about the availability and costs of his Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, and Skylab catalogs and post the results.

Got my Apollo catalog from Mr. Wilhelm today. 114 pages and $20 for a handy sized booklet that I can carry around at stamp shows!

Also in there was a note from Mr. Wilhelm that 'The catalog "US Space Stations" (Dyna-Soar, MOL, and Skylab) will be issued ~March 2006'.

And before the rest of you quiz me; no, I don't understand how Dyna-Soar got lumped into a catalog of US Space Stations, but I'm glad it did.

Does Wilhelm have a website? Or an email address? How much are his catalogs? Thanks.

Gregory, Peter Wilhelm passed away on 15 December 2006. He was the President of the German astrophilatelic society, Weltraum Philatelie.

I am not sure whether his successor in this office, Florian Noller, would have copies of the catalogue left. I doubt it. But you may contact him at florian@spaceflori.com. Hope this helps, — Jürgen
