THE “DUBOIS” COLLECTION OF JAMAICA POSTAL HISTORY AND STAMPS PART I
CONSIDERED TO BE THE GREATEST COLLECTION OF JAMAICA EVER FORMED
London, September 2020
The “Dubois” collection of Jamaica postal history and stamps has been formed over almost forty years by a most discerning collector and features some items of great historical importance and rarity. Right from the 1692 firsthand account of the Port Royal earthquake, the sale features a remarkable range of the pre-stamp postal handstamps and markings through to unique hand painted essays, outstanding proofs and printing errors. A further highlight is an outstanding section of Great Britain used in Jamaica. The strength and depth of this quality A to Z collection is remarkable, and covers a wide number of British colonies with the main emphasis of those in the West Indies. Among the issued stamps, there are a number of great rarities from all the reigns, varieties of all sorts plus many King George VI sets in imprint blocks of four or larger.
The “Dubois” collection of Jamaica Postal History and Stamps will be offered in two parts in 2020-21. Part I will be offered for sale in London in September 2020. For further information please contact Nick Startup, [email protected], or David Parsons, [email protected]
