Several 100s of stamps, housed in one packed volume from the first issues onwards, representing a holding from an oldtime source. Starting off with #1 with 2x 4 margined examples, 1 cut close but clear, the other with a minute thin in the margin mentioned for accuracy&rsquo,s sake only (cat $275 each), then 20cts black, 2x 25cts blue, followed by Napoleon head imperfs with dozens of examples including 1fr high value #21, 4 margined (Scott retail $2500), thinned yet of good appearance. Also mention should be made on one of the 3x 80cts Napoleon, this one with a star cancel (#19), ,one of the more ,beautiful copies we have had the pleasure to offer &ndash, wait until you see it! Further values 1862/71 to the 80cts with several dozens of the 40cts inc Anchor cancel multiples, followed by 1863 again through to 80cts with dozens of this issue as well. Then the imperforate Bordeaux inc 4 margined 2cts #39 (cat $190),16x #41inc 4 margined (cat $125 each) with a wide range of cancels and shades, 10cts the same with 9 examples (cat $50 each), 12x 20cts, 30cts #46 with 5 examples some cut close yet all good collectable examples (cat $160 each), similarly 40cts orange #47 with another 16 examples (cat $90 each) through to the 80cts, a most impressive range overall. Then 1870/73 issues with plenty of good stamps here as well with several dozens of the 2cts many with cds strikes, similarly with the 4cts with 18 different examples some in the very best condition, also 5cts, 10cts, 15cts, 20cts inc multiples, 40cts again by the dozens often in tip-top condition, followed by the numeral 1872/75 issues with a similar range of many dozens inc multiples of 80cts well worth spending time on. Then 'peace and commerce' types galore with for example #64, 10x #66, 4x #67, 4x 68, #70,7x #72, #73, #74 and #75 with a substantial Scott retail. , Similar picture with the 1876/77 defins inc 3x #79 (cat $190 each), through to dozens of franc values, the 1880 types to 5fr top value with #94 35cts with at least 40 examples (cat $26 each) to #96 5fr violet and red lilac value including various multiples with nearly 60 examples here (cat $60 each!). Also seen 1879/90s with all the good values here by the dozens through to #102. Turn of the century also strong inc key value Mersons 2fr gray violet with 10 examples, virtually all superb (cat $60) with values to 20fr. The ,20th ,century overall is substantial with several dozens of the key values here from 'rights of man' to sower types inc Scott #241 the 5f light ultra plus 10fr carmine rose miniature sheet superb used in Strasbourg (cat $700), through to mint multiple overprints, defins, etc. The more you look at this look the more there is to discover. Our guestimate Scott retail is that it must be somewhere in the $30,000+ range including back of the book, much of which deserves further research in Yvert specialised. Quality overall is better than normally encountered. Needs lots of work, preferably with an Yvert which will pay many dividends through discoveries.

This represents an old-time dealer's stock recently unearthed after several decades in obscurity, housed in a battered stockbook on old cardboard pages with much never hinged and loaded with multiples and 'coins dates'. Interesting areas include specimen overprints, interpanneaus with and without numbers and a plethora of shades, with many hundreds of stamps here, often crammed together and concealing hidden surprises such as sequenced interpanneau numbers stacked on top of each other, marginal advertising inc. Evian mineral water, Menier chocolate, Grey-Poupon mustard, etc. Other interpanneau numbers are collected for superb and interesting centrally struck postmarks over the gutter, also studies of cancels on piece, propaganda inc. framing labels 'Dieu Protege La France', further advertising with 'Philopode' cream for the feet of marching soldiers in original advertising booklet cover, lots of specimen overprints throughout to the 1.05fr orange red, and much more. As a vintage accumulation, the condition here is naturally a little varied with occasional small faults and toning, though it is generally far above what is normally encountered, with the majority of the mint being in tip-top never hinged quality. A real treasure-trove for the specialist, full of beautiful items that would enhance any collection, viewing recommended.

A most interesting substantial accumulation of material representing a ‘work in progress’ holding, often from auction and private purchases over many years. 1000s of stamps, mint and used with album pages, as well as old approval books, stockbooks, stockcards, glassines and old auction lots, etc. There are many hundreds of items of postal history, much significant including 19th century and lots of WW1 including Russian Forces in France. There is also a batch of interesting old documents as well. This lot is quite chaotic and needs time which will pay dividends, as so much needs sorting. For example we have seen stacks of never hinged series from the 1950s and providing you work on the lot, especially the French Colonies from the 19th century onwards, you will have much more time to appreciate the depth of material here. A thoroughly recommended viewing especially for dealers.

Huge potential here, a real treasure trove for dealer or collector in French Colonies, replete and virtually all one of a kind.

An old manila folder containing about 400 stamps and labels, the vast majority pre-WWII with an excellent range of propaganda material from WWI. Highlights including booklet of labels from the 'Ligue Souvenez-Vous' to 'perpetuate in our hearts the execrable memory of German crimes' with much text and labels showing a German as a salesman (and his former figure of bloodsoaked pillager), urging us to never forget they are the same man! Other good WWI era items are early red and blue airpost labels in the same design as the ‘orphelins de la guerre’ series of French semi-postals, colorful regimental labels, 'bon de solidarite' vignettes, PTT 5 francs 'pour nos victimes de la guerre', Joan of Arc labels, different cockerel designs for another Anti-German League, etc, leading on to 1920s red cross health and hygiene propaganda issues inc. 'giant' versions still in their red cross glassines, a wonderful series of philatelic commemorative designs showing an elegant woman with parasol looking at a giant advertsing-style Marianne perforated poster, highly visual and certainly seldom seen. Also expositions and fairs from the late ,19th century onwards, ,19th century revenues, and much more. Old-time accumulations like this are becoming increasingly hard to find today, huge potential for dealer or collector with much material that would grace any worthwhile collection of France with unusual back of the book.
