EDITION D'OR vol. 51: Postal services in rural areas in the Netherlands before 1850 • The Hotze Wiersma Collection

1 / 6
article number: 5
Hotze Wiersma rightfully calls himself a postal historian. He has several publications in his name and was coordinator and co-writer of the PEP books, Parts 1 and 2.

In the fragmented starting point of postal history in the Netherlands the comparatively powerful city set the rules and, in the Republic, that meant Amsterdam. Services for the rural population were for a long time unprofitable, and thus, absent. The development of postal services in rural areas in the Netherlands over a period of 270 years is exquisitely shown by Wiersma in a philatelic-scientific manner.

160 pages, of which 128 are full-colour plates showing pages from the collection, hardbound with dust jacket, bilingual in English and Dutch, collection pages in Dutch. English collection pages (digital) upon request.

EDITION SPÉCIALE • Netherlands - 'Bright and Beautiful' Postal History 1852-1867 • The Luis Alemany Indarte Collection

1 / 1
article number: 3
The "colourful" diversity of the postal history of the Netherlands from 1852 to 1867 is expressed in the collection of Luis Alemany Indarte. Hardly a Netherlands collection of the past is likely to have had more three-colour frankings and mixed frankings of perforated and imperforated stamps of the 1852 and 1864 issues than that of Luis Alemany Indarte. The bright and beautiful postal history of the Netherlands from 1852 to 1867 has probably never before been portrayed so colourfully and in such variety as in this collection.

An award winning exhibition collection of the first three issues of the Netherlands on covers to mostly foreign destinations, as well as proofs, blocks, specimens, gutter pairs and special and beautiful cancellations.

157 pages, full-colour plates showing pages from the collection, hardbound with dust jacket, bilingual in English and Dutch
