Sabin, 2007) This important reference is the English translation and expansion of a series of Danish-language articles written by Hansen.

An Introduction to the Postal History of Denmark 1624-1950 (Cornelius, 2004) To call this massive 344-page, large-format book an "introduction" is misleading. This masterwork provides a wealth of valuable information from which even experienced philatelists will learn much. Entirely in ENGLISH, well-illustrated, hardbound. Well written and enjoyable to read (sometimes unusual in philatelic books). Covering every conceivable aspect of postal history, transport, rates, geo-political postal matters, types of postmarks, all the postal services, and much more. I am told that this is a limited printing of 300 copies. Though costly (high price, small discount, and tremendous shipping cost), this is one book that should be required for every collector of Denmark postal history. Get it soon.

Denmark and Danish West Indies Stamps -- The Hagemann Series G.A. Hagemann was a philatelic pioneer who shaped the early 20th Century of Danish and DWI philately. Hagemann was an avid philatelist and researcher who managed to obtain special access to archival records and stamps, including full sheets of most all the bicolor printings, etc. His studies formed the basis of all subsequent work and his documentation of the printings and sheets was invaluable. Hagemann's 1940-1951 volumes are superb philatelic literature, especially considering the war-time conditions under which two of them were produced. Danish text. Naturally all copies are in varying degrees of used condition.
