Greenland: Packs - Folders - Books: Books Issued By The Post Office  
The Greenland Post Office has issued a range of packs, souvenir folders, and books (some containing stamps or for specific stamp issues) over the years. This listing is not yet complete; most not-yet-listed items are in stock and are available on approval.
These books were officially issued by the post office and were only available through the post office. Some of them, as described, do contain stamps as originally issued. The issue quantities for such books tends to be remarkably small and it often takes many years for collectors to become aware that the books were issued -- by then they are usually sold out from the post office and I am not aware of any other dealer that attempts to stock them.

Book shipping rates apply to these items.
