By Mörck (Nordstrøm, 2016) A wonderful new book about the work of STAMP ENGRAVER, artist, and lover of life, Martin Mörck. Engraving stamps since the 1970s, Mörck has built up an impressive resume of Scandinavian stamps and also from many other countries. Though each artist is their own person, I believe I can see Slania's influence in some of Mörck's work. This 250+ page hardbound book is COMPLETELY IN ENGLISH, packed with super-high quality illustrations, and very interesting and wide-ranging text. Whether you appreciate the artistic quality of stamps or wonderful stamp engraving, you will greatly enjoy this book.

Danish Postal Rates and Postal History 1875-2015 (Bundgaard, 2015; Danske Forsendelser 1875-2015) A combination of a postal rate and postal history book, this is an invaluable reference for any collector of Danish covers. There are good rate books for common rates, for early air rates, and the rates for which stamps were issued. However, this book delves deeper into the rates, including unusual uses. Especially useful are AIR RATES FROM 1950s-1980s which have otherwise been almost impossible to find in the literature. In Danish, but fairly easy to use. Very sturdy softbound. Greatly expanded, now with 272 pages (56 more than last edition). An important and long-needed book.

The Maritime Postmarks of the Danish Kingdom (Danielski and Schilling, 2010) A wonderful new, original (not a translation) book published by the Scandinavian Philatelic Foundation.

Pictures every ship mail postmark (1854 on), route postmark, paquebot, etc. Describes the routes (back into the 1700s), ships, dates of use, and assigns rarity factors. Includes FAROE and GREENLAND. Plus has 32 page pictorial index of the postmarks organized by appearance / type, making it tremendously easier to find postmark listings. Limited edition which I expect to sell out.

Russia In Finland (Iversen, Narstad, Quinby; 2019) This is hard to describe without seeming too enthusiastic. It covers virtually every aspect of 1899-1918 use of Russian stamps in Finland: historical background & Russification of Finland; Russian stamps and stationery actually sold in Finland, plus that which was hand-carried in; postal history / uses; translated official documents; postal rates; catalog number cross reference; bibliography, and index. 204 pages, ALL IN ENGLISH, packed full of illustrations, very high quality printing and perfect binding. A terrific book; I very highly recommend for anyone interested in Finnish philately, as well as Finnish & Russian postal history.

Icelandic Postal Stationery (2019, Helgason) A long-needed and important handbook and catalog for this significant subject. This is the first major work on this subject, in English, in nearly 60 years. Hardbound, 245 pages, with complete text in Icelandic AND COMPLETE ENGLISH. The catalog listings, which necessarily use a new numbering system, do not have prices. (I plan to eventually develop a basic pricing supplement and a concordance for catalog numbers; I do not have a publication date, but they will be provided free to purchasers from me.) Only 100 copies were printed -- OUT OF PRINT. Will be rare! A must-have reference for serious collectors of Iceland or Icelandic postal stationery. (Sorry for high cost due to very small print run.) LOTS OF NEW INFORMATION!

Postal Rates in Iceland 1870-2009, Second (2017) Edition (Flack, 2017) The primary reference for Icelandic postal rates. Significantly UPDATED. Entirely in English and with 229 pages and color illustrations. A monumental work including the local, domestic, Nordic, European, and world rates; parcel rates, special services, etc. Due to the massiveness of the information, the worldwide parcel rates only extend to WWII (thus keep your old edition for the partial later worldwide parcel rate information it includes). The rate tables are easy to understand and use; the air tables include both the supplemental air rate information and the total of the air and the surface components. This is a must-have book!

The Steinberg Covers: Forged Swedish Covers From The Classic Period (2015, Obermüller-Wilen & Hällström; Steinbergbreven) A fully illustrated listing of 207 recorded forged classic Swedish covers presumably made by Robert Steinberg and Hannelore Rosenberg (both of Germany); they also made other European cover forgeries. Sold starting in the late 1960s, many of these "dangerous" forgeries initially received "good" certificates. In 1980 the fraud started to be revealed, however, many of these covers are still offered and re-offered in the market. This book illustrates all 207 and discusses the features that assist in identifying these particular forgeries. A very important reference for the collector of classic Swedish postal history. Cardbound, 35 pages, wonderful color printing.

Magnifying Glass -- 10x 21mm Jeweler's Loupe The general style of 10x magnifier that I use, however, this particular one is much less costly than the better ones -- the price is just a fraction of the nicer ones. The lenses are glass, the case is metal, it folds up for your pocket, and it comes in a neat little carrying box. You can probably find this or similar online at a lower price, but then you usually have to pay a lot for shipping. I offer this as a convenience. That said, this will do the job perfectly well and save you money. TO USE: Hold still and close to the eye (about an inch or so) and about an inch or so from the object -- move the object, not the glass, to attain focus. SHIPPING COST: Extra unless you add to an already bulky order.
