Archive for February, 2009
This blog content grew from the private published first books “The Indonesia Independence War Postal History ” (Sejarah Pos Perang Kemerdekaan Indonesia) with the informations from Mr Ramkema espesially the information sheet of Dai Nippon Club Nederland and an information about V. Esbensen from GoGo phillatelic Shop Braga street Bandung in 1985.
At the same time , V.Esbensen made proposal to published Indonesian Revolutionary Period Postal History Handbook and asked Dr Iwan to joined this project , but not finished because he moved from Canada to Singapore after he made a catalogue with the same tittle for an auction of Mr Vrijdag collections, and in 1998 we heared that he was passed away(in memoriam), good by our best friend.
In 1985 Mr P.Bulterman from Nederland came to the IUC ‘s founder, but the Indonesia Independence Postal history collection didn’t sold , but some were sold to Indonesia collectors and all were sold at Nederland Auction and USA collectors in 2004-2008 .
In 1998 the Five Star Phillatelic Club This first book will be published but didn’t issued because of the political , economic and multidimensial crisis . but in 1990 and 2001 mr Bulterman published catalague postal stationer of this period with Dai Nippon Period , few West Sumatra and Lampong Postal Stationer he found from IUC founders .
In 2008 Mr Vosse ,secretary of Dai Nippon Phillatelic Club Nederland published the Revenue catalogue this period combination with Dai Nippon era.
He asked the IUC Founders to sell the Reveneu collestion unlist in his catalogue via Mr Judi & Suwito Tangerang but I told them to wait until the book published.
The new unique collections in this book are found with many support from the IUC ‘s founder friend like Mr Harry Hutabarat, Aris Siregar, Ir Untung, Udin, Mamat, the Man from Jogya and Solo,the son of immemorian Gazali Nasution, inmemoriam Mr Tom Bleeker and his friend Father Frans Siemerink, inmemoriam Ir Zakir, Inmoriam Mr Gho Kong Liang who was the first Indonesian phillatelist have gave the IUC Founder information about the postal History and his friend Phoa Lin kwee who have made many phillatelic covers( Cancelled To Order).
Some phillatelic ‘s collectors and traders didn’t like to help the IUC’s Founder because they afraid their high value collections will be undervalue and they afraid another collector didn’t want the collections after the IUC’s Founder chosed. We hope after read this book , they will change their opinion.
All the unique and high value collections were found alone as a given from many friends during the youth age circa the years 1957 to 1970 , and until this time not found anymore.
