Also not a Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Finnish ... catalogue.
This has a reason.
For those catalogues can't be seen as 'local' catalogues alone.
Remember I talked about 4 types of collectors:
4. theme collection
In the previous post, I showed some individual, local, country catalogues.
Now I put some 'region' catalogues under your attention.
Regions can be of various types:
- the scandinavian countries - very popular amongst European collectors - (Denmark, Norway, Sweden)
(extended with Iceland, Finland and even Greenland, Faroer Islands, Åland, ...)
- Balcan area (Albania, Bosnia i Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro)
(extended if wanted with Croatia, Slovenia, Serbia, and even Romania and Turkey)
- Islands of the Caribean
- The Middle East
For those collectors there isn't much choice.
As there is no catalogue that only deals with a certain region.
Except the FACIT catalogue, that combines all scandinavian countries.
Not easy to find second hand, but this copy is.
Besides a regional catalogue, it can also (of course) be used as a local catalogue for each individual country.
Some worldwide catalogues, have the same benefits as this Facit-catalogue,
but I will explain that in my next post(s).
