The editor and contributors to the encyclopaedia are aiming to document everything known about the postal history and stamps of Jamaica. The project has been running since 1990 and the amount of information they have collated is a fantastic achievement. They envisage it will take a further 25 years to complete (if, indeed ever).
The encyclopaedia is highly recommended viewing and can be found here:
Detailed images of every Czechoslovak and Czech Republic stamp (with the exception of the 1919 POŠTA ČESKOSLOVENSKÁ overprints and the stamps of Bohemia & Moravia), almost every souvenir sheet, minisheet, and gutter, as well as examples of se-tenant, tete-beche, booklet, and coupon pieces can be found in this online library.
