Condition: JAPAN FORGERIES IMITATIONS DRAGON STAMPS Monograph 4
Description: Forgeries and Imitations of the Dragon Stamps of Japan Japan's Dragon stamps have been extensively forged by several different forgers. This 24 page monograph details all the forgeries and imitations of these stamps known at the time of its publication in 1971. This includes forgeries created by Japanese producers Wada Kotarō, Kamigataya, and Hirose, the Spiro Brothers in Germany, as well as creations by unknown individuals and even official imitations. The Wada forgeries consist of different (either six or eight) design types within each plate, and an enlarged image of each different design type for each denomination is provided. It also defines and lists the various 'states' of the 6-stamp plates, produced primarily by the relocation of the sankō (reference) or mozō (imitation) incorporated in their designs. This monograph also includes informative biographical facts about the producers, particularly Wada, and still remains the principal source of this information IN ENGLISH PHOTOCOPIED & STITCHED REPRINT AS PRODUCED BY THE PUBLISHERS * NOT AVAILABLE OTHERWISE - very few copies in stock...ORDER NOW NOT TO BE MISSED!!!

JAPAN FIELDPOST IN SIBERIA MANCHURIA SAKHALIN 1918 1925
Condition: JAPAN FIELDPOST IN SIBERIA MANCHURIA SAKHALIN 1918 1925
Description: IN ENGLISH ** ILLUSTRATED * 96 pages 8” x 11” + MAPS -- Edward J. Rasmussen has rendered a very comprehensive analysis of his monograph's subject, starting with a preliminary historical essay which, with reference to fold-out maps at the back of the publication, provides a very good context to understand the fieldpost operations. This is followed by a detailed discussion of the fieldpost incorporating many illustrations of used envelopes and cards, which include translations of the more commonly used identifying marks and postal inscriptions encountered. Many excellent reference tables and listings are provided including one with a full listing of fieldpost offices, together with their opening and closing dates, location, operating unit name, and earliest and latest recorded postmarks; while another listing provides the postal volume and number of postal personnel at each location. The Concordance for Place Names is an additional useful tool as turning contemporary Japanese renderings of Russian names into Roman letters often produces a name very far from the Russian original.
