Deskripsi

Lost Countries explores the history of those countries that at one point in time existed, and even issued their own stamps, before they were colonized and usurped. Countries such as Cyrenaica, North Ingria, the Danish West Indies, Fiume, Obock, Priamur, Stellaland, French India Tuva, Wenden, and even Fernando Poo are finally given their day in this lively and informative new book. By exploring these countries' stamps and maps, the authors go in search of the truth about these fascinating, now-vanished nations. They unearth a wide variety of stories, some charming, some amusing, some dark. Some of the places they find are now just historical curiosities, while others still sit right at the heart of contemporary conflicts.
