1903 AMES ESSAYS: Stamp-size photographic essay in sepia on thick ungummed paper with Saw-Tooth Roulette 13½ ACSC #E24, Cat $3000. Superb! Ex 'Besancon' (I). [The ACSC makes the point that this essay was undenominated & that it "was accompanied by a handdrawn 'VICTORIA' tablet to fit the blank space." In fact, that piece - which is included here & which is not handdrawn but a bromide - is also twice inscribed with the denomination '1D', making this an Australian 'keyplate' design!]

1903 VAUGHAN ESSAYS: 5/- KEVII, Allegorical Figure & Flag stamp-size perforated essay in blue on thick ungummed unwatermarked paper with 'STATE OF QUEENSLAND' in lower tablet BW #E10A, well centred, Cat $4000. Ex 'Chartwell': sold for £660. Superb! [NB: the 'Chartwell' catalogue stated that the perfs at right are trimmed. They're not: it's an optical illusion caused by the presence of a blue vertical line along the perf tips]

Most of the Vaughan essays have obvious defects including tears, thins and surface abrasions. This & the next three lots are among the finest such essays we have seen. The ACSC states: "All the Vaughan essays are very rare, with only one to three examples of each recorded". It is also noted that a high percentage are locked away in institutional collections. The 5/- design is especially relevant to the Kangaroo issue as it alone features a kangaroo, behind the allegorical figure.

1905 ESSAYS: Amateurish pencil drawing of a 3d design with the Australian Coat of Arms on artpaper (61x80mm), endorsed "34" on the reverse. Not recorded in the ACSC. Ex 'Besancon' (III). [Apart from the vendor's attribution, there is nothing to indicate that this was a submission for a design competititon. Caveat emptor]

1911 STAMP DESIGN COMPETITION: Original artwork of a 'ONE PENNY' design featuring an outline Map of Australia highlighting Agriculture, Mining & Cattle with Kangaroo & Birds at the corners, in India ink on thin board (124x107mm) ACSC #E55, Cat $6000. Plus stamp-size reproductions in claret, ultramarine, grey-lilac or deep dull green on various grades of paper ACSC #E116A-C & the unlisted grey-lilac, Cat $6000. Ex 'Besancon' (II): sold for SFr6050.

The ACSC has attributed this work to ET Luke, probably based on the inclusion of the stamp-size versions. However, the reverse of the card, which originally was significantly larger, has a full endorsement re the entry & is signed "By James..." which can in no way be misconstrued as any part of "ET Luke". Luke worked for The Age newspaper where his reduced designs were produced. We suggest that "James" was a friend or colleague of Luke's who had access to the same equipment]
