75 Years of Post Office Stamp Printing 1920-1995 (Johansson, 1995; Postens Frimarks Tryckeri Under 75 Ar 1920-1995) This book is a 40-page reprinting of a 1995 Postal Museum Yearbook article. Entirely in Swedish, it discusses the development of Swedish stamp printing from the 1920 installation of a new rotary printing press (American-made Stickney press) to 1995. Very interesting with many useful photos and illustrations. INCLUDES BLACKPRINTS of the 1995 Film issue and three 1920-1928 definitive issue stamps (Scott #115, #116 Type II, and #168 Type II), all made directly from the original engravings, thus in wonderful proof quality. Extremely scarce book -- the price is based on the value of the blackprints in it. Little known and virtually unobtainable. Inquire for copies w/o blackprints.
