This article links to tables of the lowest-weight inland private (ie person-to-person)letter and postcard postage rate, and has a brief list of some books in the (APS members-only) library where considerably more details can be found. Note that air mail, registration, express etc services cost more; the extra is given in all the handbooks as a surcharge to be added to the basic surface rate.

The research for the 'Anschluß article' has made it possible to provide a correct list of Austrian Registered Post Rates, including the Anschluβ period for which some rates given in the major catalogues cannot be justified. Note that these are surcharges, payable as well as the normal postage on the item. The currency abbreviations used are: Kr = Kreuzer; H = Heller; K = Kronen; Gr = Groschen; S = Schilling; Rpf = Reichspfennig; Eu = Euro. See the 'rates index' for details of the currencies themselves.
All these books are in German; and are long; and apart from Netto are heavy!
