An envelope from Copenhagen

November 7, 2008

It looks like the frequency of adding bibliophilatelic content slowed down even more during this year. But of course the small engine of bibliophilatelic passion is still running and nearly by chance while thumbing through a stack of postcards I came accross the following envelope, that commemorates the 500th anniversary of Copenhagen university library.

Universitetsbiblioteket 1982 København

Universitetsbiblioteket København 1482-1982

It was send by the Universitetsbiblioteket itself to the small Zealandian municipality Farum on june 11th 1982 but as it is emptied I will probably never know why. Maybe some overdue notice… However, it is quite nicely stamped and delivered about five months before the official commemorative stamp was issued (november, 4th 1982). Therefore, it is obviously a piece worthy to be part of this virtual collection.
