In 1999 Slovenia issued a set of four stamps commemorating famous
Slovene men. Two of the stamps feature maps. The low value features
Peter Kosler (1824-1879), geographer and cartographer and his map, Zemljovid
Slovenske dežele in pokrajin Izdelala in na svitlo, published in
1853 in the almanac, Kratiki slovenski zemljopis. In the upper
left corner there is a symbol for the person commemorated. On this
stamp the symbol appears to be a transit telescope.
The 70 Tolar value
features General Rudolf Maistre (1874-1934). At the end of World War
I, during which he was a commander in the Austrio-Hungarian army,
General Maister established a Slovene army and led the struggle for a
Slovene nation. When that failed he retired from public life. The
background of the stamp is an unidentified battle map. The symbol in
the upper left corner is a saber.
