Lot Catalog No. Descrip Opening
1441   image'TREASURY COMPETITION' CHARLES WHITING 1d MULTI-DESIGN POSTAGE STAMP ESSAY IN BLACK & RED; Fine 1839/40 se-tenant Postage Stamp multi-design "POST PAID/1d/BEAUFORT HOUSE" + "POST/VR 1D/PAID" + "BEAUFORT HOUSE" Essays strip (Graveson No.18); compound printed in black & red on paper and almost certainly from the famous Essays Plate in Henry Cole's article on Treasury Essays in the March 1840 'London & Westminster Review'. This design is unusual in showing several choices for the Postage Stamp, and was produced in this smaller format when Whiting tried to make the price for his work cheaper 'per stamp'. Much rarer than the larger single Essays by Whiting (Graveson nos. 6 to 14) - presumably because this multi-Essays strip was never reprinted. Seldom offered and lacking from many major collections. [The only other example offered in Cavendish's auctions in the last 20 years was in the 'Rossfield Collection' Jan. 2008 sale; lot 2019, realised £941.] (Image)

1442   imageEARLY PROOF OF THE WHITING "JAMES WYLD" LETTER-SHEET ESSAY IN BLUE WITHOUT WORDING; Circa Aug. 1839 (?) Proof of the fancy letter-sheet design produced by Charles Whiting (the finished green examples - two are recorded - have a tiny "WHITING LONDON" imprint adjacent to the grapes in each lower corner) on thin paper (light horizontal crease and slight stains - caused by old gum on reverse consistent with being placed in 19th century printer's proof book? - barely detract). This design has engine-turned panels top and bottom where the words "POSTAGE PREPAID BY" and "JAMES WYLD, Geographer to the Queen" were subsequently inserted. One wonders if this would have proved a more popular letter-sheet design than Mulready's had it been adopted in 1840... Rare thus. [The 'Mike Salmon' example of this blue 'Proof', Cavendish 20 Apr. 2006 lot 448, realised £647.] Cross Reference : MULREADY STATIONERY & PROPAGANDA COVERS (Image)

IMPORTANT LINE ENGRAVED COVERS
Lot Catalog No. Descrip Opening
1446   imageCHARLES DICKENS AUTOGRAPHED ENVELOPE TO HIS SON WITH 1d RED & BLUE OVAL "C.D." FLAP DEVICE; 11 May 1865 env. (light vertical fold clear of autograph and stamp/cancel) sent locally in London with 1d Red (pl. 86; perfs. cut carefully top and bottom - by Dickens himself presumably? - to match the stamps' actual design) tied by a "LONDON W.C." Duplex with red "LONDON E.C." arrival cds (of the same day) on reverse. The letter was addressed to Dickens' son; "Charles Dickens Esquire Jun[io]r" and boldly signed "Charles Dickens" at lower left in the distinctive blue ink that Dickens always preferred to use. The envelope also has an embossed blue double-oval "C.D." device on the flap (opens up for display; closed tears & traces of old paper mount do not detract). Rare example of a Dickens cover sent to a member of his own family. Charles Culliford Boz Dickens Junior (1837-96) failed as a businessman in the 1860s, but then became a reasonably successful author and writer. [A similar 1854 cover - but to an unrelated author - realised £1,054 at auction earlier this year.] Cross Reference : AUTOGRAPHS, 1864-79 1d PLATES (Image)
