including the Tatiana Collection (Part I)
The stamps of the British colonial territories represent most probably, as a group, the most elegant and comprehensive way to collect one of the largest groups of countries present in all six continents. This collection was formed by a passionate collector with this purpose and to present himself with a broad range of philatelic challenges from countries he had not previously known : a fascinating combination of exploring, learning and achievement.
No less than 50 countries with over 1900 lots are herewith presented in Part 1 of this vast and valuable assembly with studies in errors, varieties, settings, some interesting postal history and of course the ever present fascination with so many rare stamps, but also many very rare which may not yet be adequately priced in monetary terms to reflect their great scarcity.
