Description

1974 Definitive issue series of nine preliminary ink drawings of fish by the artist Ernst de Jong in Pretoria, made in 1970 along with documentation describing each fish and the source for the illustration. Each drawing on the artist’s paper inside hand drawn perforations, 13.7×16.7cm, with notation of the denomination, the format size of the stamp, the fish illustrated and the reference number; plus three pages with stamp-size drawings for three proposed sets: two including fish, flora and industry and the third with birds (some peripheral damage to two of these documents); several of the designs were ones chosen for the 1974 issued stamps, an attractive group of essays showing the artist’s workings for a popular thematic and an attractive set of stamps.
