Scandinavian Collectors Club


Norgeskatalogen 2002, 6 by 8-1/2 inches, soft covers, perfect bound, 432 pages, Oslo Filatelistklubb, Oslo, approx. $40, ISBN 82 7319 182 6.

This excellent annual catalog is a must for Norway collectors. Although the text is in Norwegian, there are occasional summary pages that are also in English, including the introductory pages. For terms, there is a Norwegian/English/German vocabulary. All stamps are shown in color.

Once again there is an important illustrated section on counterfeit cancels. Everything the spcialist could want is here including rate tables since 1877, and back-of-the-book items such as souvenir sheets and franking labels. Each edition offers some new articles and this year we find a discussion of the Crown and Posthorn cancellations, and an article by Oddbjørn Solli on stamped covers to France during the skilling period.

As usual, this catalog comes highly recommended.
