French and english." (from a review)
This webpage is (or was) dedicated to French postal history and will consist of two parts. The first (and existing) one contains useful informations for everybody interested in French postal history. The Literature section will give you a list of monographs, journals and catalogues while the Links section lists the existing online informations dealing with French postal history. In the Addresses sections you will get all the addresses of auction houses, dealers, experts, societies, and postal museums which are relevant for our hobby. The dates of the stamp shows are given here. The second part (which is under construction) will present you topics I'm interested in. The Questions section will include the possibility to ask the internet community for informations.
"For my part, I have chose to collect cancellations you will find
on the traditional stamps of France. France emitted since 1849,
date of the first stamp, more than 3,000 different stamps . ...
Fortunately, to approach this type of collection, it is not
necessary to have an important budget; however, a good amount of
patience is necessary because the stamps with beautiful
cancellations are hard to find.
On this site, you will find some consultings to begin your
collection than, while surfant, you will discover the principal
postal marks and cancellations used. Good wave! " -
