LA POSTA MILITARE CON L’AFRICA ORIENTALE
Country: ITALIAN EAST AFRICA
Condition: LA POSTA MILITARE CON L’AFRICA ORIENTALE
Description: Typology of the various postmarks * Censor Marks * Accessorial & Instructional markings used by most FPOs * Air Mail delivery and routes * Checklist of the FPOs and Units they served * Use of postage free forces postal stationery and its discontinuation * FPOs opening dates and closing dates * Italian East Africa Civilian Post Offices as of 1 January 1938 * FPOs Basic Check List and Evaluations * Italian East Africa—A Chronology, 1888-1952. THIS IS A MUST HAVE bibliophile publication. 36 pages - 28 centimeters high - many illustrations - highly recommended - limited edition reprint of 75 copies, many already sold to subscribers - ************ PREFAZIONE ALLA RISTAMPA Questo progetto editoriale si propone di offrire al collezionista di poste militari l’occasione per rivisitare una serie di articoli di Virgilio Lunardon sulla campagna nell’Africa Orientale del 1936- 1937 pubblicati dalla gloriosa Rivista Filatelica d’Italia mentre la campagna era in corso. Senza alcun dubbio gli articoli hanno tutti i pregi dell’attualità storico postale dell’epoca e, rileggendoli, ci si rende subito conto che dopo 70 anni le notizie tecniche contenute sono ancora valide e restano un punto di riferimento di grande rilievo. Inoltre, ho ritenuto opportuno pubblicare un elenco di tutti gli annulli noti utilizzando i dati pubblicati nella pregevolissima antologia sulle poste militari in Africa stilata dai membri dell’Associazione Italiana Collezionisti Posta Militare, aggiungendovi le quotazioni aggiornate usando come base le aste AICPM, i listini di vendita di commercianti e vari cataloghi d’asta. Al fine di rendere fruibile il volume anche per i lettori che non parlano l’italiano, è stata inserita la cronologia dell’AOI dal 1888 and 1952 oltre che note, appunti e didascalie in inglese, intercalate nei punti opportuni. Nel riproporre gli scritti di Lunardon spero di aver fatto cosa gradita ai collezionisti e mi auguro che questa pubblicazione possa contribuire ad un maggiore sviluppo del settore. Giorgio Migliavacca ***************** PREFACE TO THE 2007 REPRINT This reprint gives the opportunity to the increasing number of military mail collectors to re-visit a very interesting series of articles on the 1936-7 campaign in East Africa written by Virgilio Lunardon, and published by the renowned Rivista Filatelica d’Italia while the campaign was still in progress. In fact, Lunardon’s articles have all the qualities of eyewitness news reports of postal history in the making. The reader will also realise that although 70 years have elapsed since their publication, these articles hold their ground and remain required reading for both the novice and the specialist. A checklist of all known FPO postmarks has been added; it is largely based on the research presented in the splendid volume on Italian FPOs in Africa published by AICPM (the Italian Society of Military Mail Collectors) about 30 years ago. Additionally, the checklist gives the market value for each postmark based on recent AICPM auctions, public auctions, and dealers price lists. Captions and annotations in English have been inserted where appropriate to disseminate the information on an international scale. Similarly a chronology of Italian East Africa covering the events, both historical and philatelic, between 1888 and 1952, has been added. I sincerely hope that the publication of this reprint will increase the number of collectors of this most interesting chapter of Italian and East African postal history. --- Giorgio Migliavacca
