Scott Catalog - 1891


In September 1868, the first Scott Catalog was published. It was a huge 21 pager and cost 10 cents.

The postcard here is from a Mr. Lorenz in Moscow asking for a copy of he "current" catalog from Scott. It was posted with the Town Post on 17 November 1891.

What other catalogs would have been in use in Moscow in 1891?

The first stamp catalogs were printed in 1861.

Stanley Gibbons printed their first in 1865.

I wonder when the first stamp catalog was printed in Russia?

Since a vast proportion of collectors in the western provinces were able to read German, I would guess that the "Gebrüder Senf Katalog" (Senf Broth. : Dealer from Leipzig) was the primary foreign catalog there.

Did the Senf Brothers issue a stamp catalog prior to 1892?

"Gebrüder Senf" is "the Brothers Mustard" -- a great name

"Mustard Broth" started their philatelic journal in 1873, first catalogue and illustrated album in the mid 1880's. The MICHEL guy worked on Senf's catalogue before he started his own catalogue in 1910.

btw. The Senf catalogue remained standart (under the lable LIPSIA catalogue) for pilatelists in the GDR until the end in 1989.

I looked and looked and could not find the "catalog" before 1892. I found the journal, Schaubeck album purchase, and the fact the brothers did a lot of facsimile illustrations. Where did you find the catalog from "mid-1880s?" I am just curious, that's all.

Interesting! The Lipsia catalog had some information in its Russian Civil War section that I've never seen in any other references. Nice to know that they're the Senf catalog under a new name, that gives their information more weight.

The Journal was sort of a (high quality) catalogue too...

Thanks! However, a journal of facsimile pictures is not necessarily a catalog. Or is it?
