Private Registry Books


An agent of a firm could obtain these books from a post office or purchase his own, so long as they conformed to postal standards. The firm could then make its own entries, and when presenting the mail for dispatch it would also present the logbook, in which the postal clerk would apply the postal office's datestamp as proof of receipt.

The item illustrated here is from Moscow to Thuringen, dated 18 September 1905. The 3-line violet handstamp at top shows the "prinyato po chastn. knigye" inscription below "einschreiben."

Can someone show another example of this marking?

Again you find nice examples in Harry von Hofmann's book about Russian registration and some scans on my webpage at http://de.geocities.com/tbbch/RPH/RPH.htm - My Interests

Harry's book is excellent. Unfortunately, not every collector has a copy. So, they cannot read what he has to say.

Round two ?


he last time we visited this mark was in February 2005. Sadly, not a single example followed the one shown. Let's try it again with a cover that offers a little bit of something for perhaps a lot of collectors.

The cover shown here also has a prinyato po chastnoi knige (received and entered in Private Logbook)hand stamp.

This commercial letter is from Hermann Eichenwald in Moscow to the Gritzner machine factory in Durlach,Germany.

The cover is registered as noted by the "R" registration label and th ditted "R" in a circle (for International Mail).

Posted at the 4th Dispatch Office in Moscow on 15 May 1903, serial #2, with posthorns. This mark is noted only in 1902-04.

On the reverse, we see the "prinyato" mark.

The franking is as follows:
3 x 10 kop.
2 x 20 kop.

For a total of 70 kop. A very heavy letter!

The letter arrived in Durlach on 31 May 1903.
