Canadian Society of Russian Philately journal Post Rider available in digital format


After 30 years and 60 issues later, the Canadian Society of Russian philately closed its doors. This was a sad moment in Russian philately since they published a lot of outstanding information in those 60 issues.

There are hundreds of satisfied collectors who have complete runs of the paper production. Rossica purchased the rights to the Post Rider journals, digitized them, and is now prepared to offer these excellent journals in PDF format. For the nay-sayers out there, you can also print a paper copy for your library.

Rossica is pleased to offer this publication according to the following guidelines. They are not free, but will not cause you to file for bankruptcy either. We will sell you copies for your personal use, but not for reproduction and subsequent sale or "give aways" to people who will not buy their own copies. We could make this happen, but must trust that you as a member of Rossica are honorable. Like our digital copies of the Rossica journals, these copies are not for loan from the Library as a whole journal. It is not good business to offer something for sale and then give it away at the same time. If there is an article you want and not the entire journal, our Librarian is more than willing to extract just that portion for you.

The Post Rider journals are searchable using Adobe's Acrobat Reader (or whatever they call it today). You have to provide this free reader yourself.

The price for a complete set is $50 for Rossica members and $75 for individuals who are not Rossica members for a downloaded version over the Internet - 750 megs. If you want a DVD version, then we add $5 to cover the cost of material, packing, and shipping via First Class mail worldwide.

Please send a check drawn on a US bank or a money order to our Treasurer. Please make the check or money order payable to Rossica Society of Russian Philately. Please indicate on the check or money order what the item is you are buying. The name and address of the Treasurer can be found on the web site under Contacts. Once the Treasurer has received payment, we will prepare and either set up a download session or mail a DVD.

If you would like to use PayPal for payment, then we add an extra $3 for members and $5 for non-members to the purchase price as listed above. Please use the email address sales@rossica.org. You must have a "verified" PayPal account. Please indicate what the item is you are buying.

I sent samples to Ged via separate email because they were to large to post.

I have a set of the Post-Riders, but if you don't, believe me, this is a bargain. There's a ton of information in there.

From a recent buyer: "Received safely, thank you. Great job whoever put this together, BTW. All members should take advantage of this inexpensive goldmine."
