Spink Shreves Galleries Sale - 97

The Edward J.J. Grabowski Collection of Guadeloupe Postal History - December 12, 2007

There is no question the Edward Grabowski's collection of Guadeloupe postal history is the finest collection ever formed of this interesting Caribbean nation. For well over twenty years he has scoured the philatelic world for covers which ultimately evolved into an exhibition that paints an extraordinary picture of Guadeloupe's fascinating and elusive postal history. And for his efforts his collection was awarded philately's highest exhibiting accolade - the Grand Prix d'Honneur - at the Washington 2006 International Stamp Show.

Mr. Grabowski's collection begins with a marvelous selection of covers using France's first adhesive stamps - including the earliest documented cover used from any of the four countries in which these stamps were introduced. The collection continues with a stunning array of different 19th century overseas and domestic usages. In featuring the stamps of the General French Colonies and the early provisional overprints of Guadeloupe, he has amassed many beautiful and rare covers. Mr. Grabowski is particularly proud of his treatment of the postal history of the numerous small post offices on the islands and their dependencies. Finally, be sure not to miss his world-famous postage due covers. We are sure as you view the auction, you will be as impressed as were the international judges that honored him.

As with all Spink Shreves Galleries auctions, bidders at their home or office can join the auction live on the Internet. Please visit our website (www.shreves.com) for more information about this exciting bidding option.
