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.
