MODENA POSTS POSTMARKS CATALOGUE 2016
Country: MODENA
Condition: MODENA POSTS POSTMARKS CATALOGUE 2016
Description: Poste Estensi - Trattato Storico e Storico Postale 1453-1852: Catalogo dei bolli, 2016 [Este’ Posts - History and Postal History 1453-1852: Postmarks Catalogue, 2016] by Giuseppe Buffagni, published 2016 by Vaccari, perfect bound, 8” x 12” (A4), 64 pages, in Italian, black and white illustrations throughout, and evaluations. The first book on the postal history of the Duchy of Modena is Vittorio Mioni’s ‘La Storia Postale dei Domini Estensi 1598-1859’ published in 1975. It was most welcome, well researched and it remains an important source of information. In 2001 the Modenese publisher Paolo Vaccari courageously published the 4-volume opus by Giuseppe Buffagni on the Este’ Posts and postal history, totalling 1544 pages and over 3000 colour and black and white illustrations. To put it mildly, it was a colossal achievement. Fifteen years after that milestone in philatelic and postal history publishing both the publisher and the author realised that new postmarks and several handwritten marks, as well as complementary postmarks such as registration marks, post paid, posted after departure (of courier) postmarks of the various post offices of the former Duchy have been recorded during the last 15 years. Of course, this was due to an appreciable extent to discoveries made by collectors who had bought Buffagni’s volumes. To these discoveries one must add similar finds by the author and publisher which included more specific dates of use extending the earliest and latest date of use, plus the color of the ink used for the postmarks. As the information exceeded the most optimistic expectations it became increasingly clear that the section devoted to the postmarks of Buffagni’s 2001 work had to be be updated, revised and expanded by publishing a separate catalogue in tune with the new finds and with the market. This catalogue does not include administrative and free-frank handstamps which are dealt with in the main opus. For the collector or scholar who needs more information about the use of the Duchy’s postmarks the 2001 volumes are indispensable; there would be little excuse for the buyer to escape the temptation because the 2001 price was €335, while now you can buy it for €100, a giveaway for four hardbound lavishly produced volumes.

From Savoy to Sicily and Malta, from Avignon to Constantinople, from Venice to Crimea,Crete, Syria the postal history of the Italian States and Kingdoms is narrated in a chronological way, showing the progress made by postal communications from antiquity to the inception of the third millennium. This book is the first of its kind published during the last 100 years; it benefits from the latest and best research carried out on Italian and European archival sources and from the best printed sources, as well as fifty years of untiring interest and research on the part of the author. Myths, misconceptions and erroneous information passed on by earlier printed sources (from the 1600s to date) are discussed and placed in the proper perspective. The book opens with a preface by one of the top five Italian postal history scholars and includes very detailed indexes, interesting appendixes, and a comprehensive bibliography. The academician, the newcomer and the specialized researcher will benefit from this compendium.
