AN INTRODUCTION TO THE POSTAL HISTORY OF DENMARK 1624 - 1950


by David Cornelius


The first publication in English to provide a detailed historical background to the growth of the Danish postal services, mail routes and postage rates for both inland and foreign mails within Europe.



Transport of the mails is covered in some detail (including a good section on the Anglo-Danish mails), together with the Wartime and military mails. There is a good range of illustrations drawn from the author's own collection, with useful explanations of rates, postmarks and accountancy markings.



Appendices include extensive tables of inland and foreign postage rates for the difficult period before 1875.


Throughout the book, references to further information are provided in footnotes, and there is a selective bibliography.


The book is designed to provide a "first reference" volume for both the advanced collector, in their research of a puzzling item, and a guide for the new collector. Much of the information has not previously appeared in English.



"The author has spent more than thirty years collecting and studying this area, and it shows in the quality of the information provided. This is a 'meaty' book that should be read, studied and then reread and restudied" Joe Hahn American Philatelist September 2004


"David Cornelius has compiled an astonishing amount of information about a range of complex topics,and he presents us with a work of true scholarship...this is a superb work of reference, and a credit to its Author, and to its publisher..." Gibbons Stamp Monthly December 2005
