71General - Thematics BIRDS ON STAMPS - AN INTACT LIFETIMES COLLECTION IN 50 ALBUMS a very large collection written up partially by country, but mainly by species. The majority are 1950's-2000's issues hinged mint (much being heavily mounted or some stuck down), and although much of the material comprises relatively cheap issues, there are some good exceptions incl. a fair Falkland Islands 1933 Centenary 5s Penguin, USA Duck Hunting issues range etc. We sampled four of the albums and these averaged 990 stamps, so we estimate there to be 40,000 to 50,000 stamps in total. An extraordinary collection which if not broken by species and stamps partially stuck down would be worth a multiple of the estimate, which reflects condition and arrangement.

Also later printings including 'POTSAGE' variety (2) in a complete sheet of 12 & another single example, plus 1914-17 4t & 8t including a reprint. Volume III: has a mint & used study of the 1933 issue with 3 covers, 18 complete sheets, these include 'missing cliché' & sheets with 'substituted clichés'. Cancelled sheets are cto.

Later some examples of stamps and covers from the post Chinese takeover period with propaganda labels, 'Free Tibet' etc. Overall the collection is well adapted to be displayed at local or national level, on matching album pages, and collections of Tibet of this level are very rarely offered.

21041General - World FASCINATING 1942 JUGEND AUSGABE SCHAUBEK ALBUM – Translated ‘Youth Issue’ 1942 World Stamp Album. This is a fully printed album including some illustrations - the most politically and militarily motivated ‘World’ (in inverted commas) stamp album that I have ever seen. The full impact of the Third Reich ‘propaganda machine’ in ‘mid-World War’ is written within these 240 extraordinarily well-filled pages of Mint and or Used comprising some, between 4,000 to 5,000 different stamps from classic through to 1942 period – which, unsurprisingly are dominated by a good collection of Germany, so that, for example Bavaria has 4 almost complete pages, Denmark comprises 4 almost full pages, Danzig 4 well filled leaves, but Germany from Empire to 1942 including territories and a few Colonies – some 45 well-filled leaves, condition variable upon earlier issues – but generally good to fine – France comprises 6 well-filled leaves, USA with 5 well-filled leaves, but Great Britain with just 2 leaves and, I may be wrong, but not even provision for a 1d black! British Colonies with, for example, 12 spaces for the stamps of Australia, 6 spaces (empty) for the stamps of New Zealand! A large heavy album, more than 2 inches thick – remarkably well-filled, some reprints / private printings in the German Zeppelins and high values – but what a joy to discover this album and write about it, there is room to upgrade and continue. I hope this album remains preserved for future generations... Includes better stamps, probably no rarities, but with between 4,000 to 5,000 stamps and possibly more (I haven’t counted) – what a pleasure to describe.
