Summary
A brief history of countries that no longer exist. 'Dead Countries' explores the history of those countries that at one point in time existed, and even issued their own stamps, before they were colonised and usurped. Countries such as Cyrenaica, North Ingria, the Danish West Indies, Flume, Obock, Priamur, Stellaland, French India Tuva, Wenden and even Fernando Poo are finally given their day in this lively and informative new book
