As described by the author:
I suspect that Dr Heinrich von Stephan inspired the original book and he later expanded the idea for the U.P.U., which started publishing "Dictionnaire des Bureaux de Poste" in March 1895,

The index includes the names of all post offices outside of Germany and the names of the most important places of those countries without an official postal service, those places being marked with an*. The listing is generally based on the latest postal guides of the individual countries. For some South American countries (Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica and Nicaragua) as well as for some British Colonies (Antigua, Gambia, Newfoundland, North Borneo and Virgin Islands), guides or lists had not been received, but other sources were used. The listing is in the language of the country concerned. For places in Turkey, Serbia, Bulgaria, Montenegro, Greece, Egypt and Persia the German spelling is used. The Russian place names are also in the German spelling, but for Russian Poland the Polish version is also used. The names are in alphabetical order. Places with a prefix such as Old, New, Great, Lower, Upper etc. will be found listed under the complete name. The same applies to names with the prefix El, La, etc. Saints (St.) are listed at the end of the letter S . Certain names have different spelling in brackets.
