Imperial Russia stationeries catalog


Dear Colleague,

After several years of investigation I have now a draft (rough copy) of my Imperial Russia stationeries catalog.
This is a draft now, and so I prepare it only in Russian
but it has only color illustration, and has many variants, proofs, etc.

Now I need your comments, suggestions for improving, and may be additional illustrations.

For those who are not frightened the Russian language of this work I can send pdf file of this work (approximately 8 Mb). Please write me and I shall send you the file.

Sincerely yours

Vladimir Venets

Vladimir, are you planning on producing an English language version? If you do, any idea when?

How does your effort differ from what is already published?:study

Dear Gary, that's depends of the reaction from the specialists. If they will say that this work is merit for publication then there will be no very big problem to translate.
I hope that Jean Walton already sent you the file
but I have no comments from you.

It includes Money Order Formulars (only printed by the Government) and also Cards Formular (also printed by the
Government) but now not POW cards.
I can send you the file and you can see.

The most striking feature is the large colored illustrations, including enlargements of the varieties and printing flaws. There are even illustrations of errors. This is a highly specialized catalog beautifully done.

You can get an idea of the quality of the presentation by looking at Vladimirs great article on Money Order Formulars in Rossica 146.

Also included are the St. Petersburg and Moscow town post envelopes, letter cards, and wrappers,

Something I had not seen before were the charitable closed letters with declaration.

Not covered are civil war, offices abroad and Zemstvo stationery. Also change of address cards.

I look forward to taking a closer look at the catalog entries.

We are currently looking at an English version submitted by Alexander Epstein. This version is almost twice the size of Mr. Venets' catalog. Both are excellent! Mr. Epstein's catalog in in B&W. Color is nice to have, but rather expensive to print. Our thinking is that most collectors would probably want a copy in PDF for their home computers, but would really like to have a paper copy to take to shows,etc. This does not mean in any way that there is a preference for one over the other one. Each catalog has its own approach to presenting the subject.

No catalog is ever complete unfortunately. However, we have to start some place and grow the effort from there. Jean Walton is editing this epic work for us and we are very grateful indeed!

If you would like a copy of the proposed Table of Contents in PDF let me know offline.

It's not so expensive to prind personal copy using color
printer.

But the file is only the draft (rough copy).
