This website is dedicated to the study and presentation of classic Russian philately, from the 18th century till the collapse of the Russian Empire in 1917.
In addition to some articles as well as some items discussions, I have decided to include a STORE category which will offer from time to time some nice stamps and covers to enhance your own collections. Please note that I am NOT a professional stamp dealer, but an educated philatelist who buys lots of material ... and therefore needs sometimes to sell various stuff that doesn't fit into my own specialized collections.
Being aware of the limitations of my own knowledge and being always eager to learn, I will gladly welcome your (constructive) comments and, in case of any mistakes or inaccuracy in the content of this website, your updates or corrections. You are most welcome to contact me for any request or remarks!
Finally, I would like to extend my thanks to all my fellow collectors who share here and there their passion for Russian philately, and who are for the most of them members of the active philatelic societies such as Rossica, BSRP, Arge Russland and Cercle Philatélique France Russie.
