Russia in Finland: The Story of Russian Stamps & Postal Stationery Used in Finland, 1899-1918
Jon Iversen, Morton Narstad, and Roger Quinby
This book makes available for the first time a general postal history overview of this era of Finnish philately in the English language. The work was commissioned by Roger Quinby, an expert on Finnish philately, who now resides in greater Atlanta, and is a valued member of the Southeast's philatelic community. The book covers such topics as the importance of Russian stamps used in Finland, the administration of postal operations under Russian authority, the Russification of the Finnish post, the removal of Finnish national identity from postal mailings, and many other cultural and historical events that influence the postal history of the era.
