What’s so special about the “Esperanto-System”?
I took the name from “Esperanto”, the universal language, to express the idea of combining only the best from different systems (“languages”).
In Russian Federation and most post-Soviet Republics alone, there are seven different systems currently being used. All authors practically disregard the value and knowledge from the previously issued catalogs and try to create something “new”, based on their opinions which are mostly subjective. I believe the situation is the same in most countries.
Therefore, I offer to all collectors this universal cataloging system which will combine only the best from existing systems (such as John Law; Albert Pick, Nikolai Kardakov, Joe Boling, Friedberg’s, Owen Linzmayer, Dmitry Zagorenko, Vadim Tislenko, Scott Semans, Michael Mitchiner, Higgins & Gage,etc.).
The Esperanto-System (“ES”) is free of the vast majority of problems encountered with other systems.
The “ES” happens to be a unique instrument that allows us not only to describe all existing collectable issues, but also to organically add in it any newly-discovered items which would be added later. First is the technology, then the management. I want to embrace technological changes, and base future of “ES” on modern technology.
Let look on readers. They continue to enjoying the benefits of a civilization and technical progress, in the form of “e-readers”, such as “KINDLE”.

Well, why the collectors can’t follow their example. The answer is very simple: The “e-book” is some kind of “PDF”, i.e. it’s a static “picture”. Thus it was much simpler to create “e-reader” than “online-catalog”. In contrary to “e-readers” they consist of technologically advanced dynamic data. In order to make these data be “understandable” to the computer, it was mandatory to create the universal system (the “language”) which, in turn, would be also the collectors’ universal “language”.
Another important factor in developing of “ES” was a desire to follow technological progress, and as a result, to the basic rule of a modern trend of market development. As I mentioned before: “At first technology – then marketing”, thus the philosophy of “ES” based on doctrine:
The future – starts today!
