image France, The Most Stunning Collection You'll Ever See, 1849-2010. On Lindner hingeless pages filling eight volumes, a mint collection as close to complete as you're ever likely to find; the couple used earlies are hardly worth mentioning, especially as many duplicate mint examples, and there are just a handful of spaces to fill for completion; everything present is fresh, clean and sound, with just some stunningly pretty Classics; for a complete list of highlights, see Scott, but as a taste of what's present, we note #1 (APS certificate), 1a, 2, 3a, 3b, 10c (no gum, with certificate), 11 Proof, 13 (Sismondo certificate), 15 (signed thrice), 26 (never hinged), 29 reprint pair, 37 (3, 1 mint, thinned, plus 2 used, one signed twice), 53 (never hinged), Sages with shades, position pieces, a 10c millésime single, plus a #87 Prussian blue with Calves certificate; 1900-03 definitives with shades, millésimes, SPÉCIMEN and ANNULÉ overprints, plus two examples of #126; a fertile Sower series with overprints and millésimes; #197 never hinged (APS certificate), 226 (plus single from sheet used), 241a, 246 (signed), 254 (signed), 329, 1920-22 Postes Paris and Postes France overprints, precancels, unissued "R F" and "R•    France•    F" Dulac Mariannes, plus more recent souvenir sheets, Europas, booklets, etc.; #B1 (single plus never hinged pair), B2, B3-B10 (the higher values beautifully centered), B11, B34 (single plus exploded booklet of eight); #C1-C2 (each with APS certificate), C6b (never hinged), C8-C14, C15; #J1-J25 (some duplicated!!!); Military stamps, handstamped "RF" overprints (Ceres #16-27, each signed), #N1-N14 plus N27-N58, French Legion issues (no Bear, surprisingly), French Free Forces Levant souvenir sheets perforated and imperforate, and oh so much more, Very Fine, without doubt, this is the finest French collection we've ever offered; if you look at nothing else this sale, this is it.

image France, Exhibition Collection of the 15c Sage Stamps & Stationery, 1876-1901. A five-frame (80-page) encyclopedic presentation of this single value of the Peace and Commerce issue.

Far and away the most common of the Sages, the 15-centime is also the most varied and complex. First issued in 1876 (in gray) to pay the domestic post card rate, it assumed new duties two years later (now in blue), meeting the postage for a domestic single-letter. The issue's complexity arises from the number of die types and subtypes found, along with the variety in its postal stationery.

The collection is exhaustive in its treatment of all aspects of the design, with each die subtype mounted sequentially. Each type is represented by a mint example, a millésime pair, and by clear examples of each subtype with legible cancels, thus illustrating the range of shades, printings and papers. It offers complete coverage of regularly issued ("over-the-counter") stationery varieties, along with numerous examples of minor varieties, commemorative and imprinted-to-order stationery as well.

Among the too-many-to-list highlights are essays, proofs (plate and trial color) and special printings; a sampling of the "15-15" essays, plus post-1879 trials, reimpressions, reproductions and commemorative printings; printings from different plate stages; shade and paper varieties; Specimens, experimental Paris precancels, perforation Errors, Freaks and Oddities; recto-verso printings, various perforation formats on letter cards (mint and used), multiples including a block of 60 of the blue Type IIG; revalued stationery, privately printed precursor coils, Chalon forgeries, even a set of proofs of a proposed set of stamps to supplant the Sage series.

A number of Behr, Drouet and Gautré certificates accompany.

A true tour de force. See it in its entirety on our website.

image France, Look Left: The 30c Cameo Sower, 1907-41. A specialized, two-volume study of the stamp in all its glory

This collection, on 113 exhibit pages, was painstakingly created over many, many years, and focuses on the 30c "cameo". Beginning with an unfinished épreuve d'atelier, without numerals of value but in the issued color, we are shown the great diversity this denomination has to offer. The longest serving value of the series (introduced in 1907, retired in 1941), the 30c shows the greatest variation in official colors (eight) and one of the greatest in die types and sub-types (seven). The stamp appeared in three colors (orange, rose and red) and in purple, black and red as postal stationery. The stamps were printed both by flat and rotary plates, and were sold in sheet format, coils, booklets and precancels—all of which are represented.

The stamps are presented with paper (normal, striated-gum "X" and wartime "CG" types) and color varieties, test prints (orange on bristol with simulated perforations, for example), imperforates, mis-perfs, millésimes, overprinted (regular, varieties and "ANNULÉ" for training school use), booklets, Specimens, printing on both sides, incredible fold-overs, etc., etc., etc., while stationery includes postal cards and letter cards.

While this breadth and depth of coverage is in itself awe-inspiring, it is enhanced by the jaw-dropping array of postal history and usages presented. From triple-rate to single-rate letters (as postage rates increased), telegrams, pneumatic post, domestic and international usages, on parcel tags, on newspaper piece, and much, much more, with numerous Airmail, Registered and Censored covers—even a couple Rural Carrier covers (one Registered). Overseas destinations range nearly as widely as the stamp varieties, and include Indochina and French Guinea, Russia and Trinidad, Egypt and New Caledonia, and Madagascar and Siam. There is a cover franked with Andorre-overprinted Sowers, several Interrupted Flight or Crash Covers, even covers addressed to Carroll Chase (at the Paris branch of the Chase Bank), AC Roessler and Georges Lamy.

Several items accompanied by Gautré or Behr certificates.

A simply stunning monographic study of a single issue that must be seen to be believed. Visit our website, where the collection is imaged in full.

La Semeuse was a beloved symbol of the French Republic long before she graced her first envelope. Created in 1897 by Oscar Roty for use on coins of the Third Republic, "The Sower" represented France planting her ideals and seeds of peace. And those seeds needed to take root as the Twentieth Century dawned.

France issued three new series of stamps in 1900—Blanc's "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity", Mouchon's "Rights of Man" and Merson's high values—none of which proved popular. The Minister for Posts and Telegraphs, looking for a new motif, turned to Roty and his numismatic design for salvation.

Introduced in 1903, the Sower was an immediate success with the public. She served the French on their definitives for the next 38 years, appearing in three design varieties, on multiple denominations, with numerous color changes and in every format possible.

image France, The Decaris Marianne: Production and Use, 1960-68. This collection, presented as a five-frame exhibit, is a specialist's delight. Over 90 covers illustrate the stamp's usage, with single, solo and mixed frankings throughout. Covers originate not just from France, but from various Départments and (former) Colonies as well, including Algeria (both pre- and post-independence, the latter with varieties and errors), French Guyana, Guadeloupe, Madagascar and Martinique.

The majority of the holding, however, consists of a study of the stamp in its various formats and their printings. It begins with two imperforate deluxe essays in unadopted colors (each with a 2010 Drouet certificate), and continues with trial color essays in blocks of four (we're particularly fond of the brown-and-black) and a final-design, issued-colors deluxe proof. We're then treated to a wealth of production, printing and plate flaws, color varieties, imperforates, dated corners, paper varieties, positionals and multiples used, and much more-including a booklet wrapper for a trial printing of the stamps with anise-flavored gum (only the French!).

Usages include single- and multiple-rate letters, Special Delivery, Airmail, Pneumatic, Acknowledgement of Receipt, even unaccepted and illegal mail!
Designed by noted artist and engraver Albert Decaris and engraved by Jules Piel, the 25c Marianne was surface-printed by three-color rotary press. Issued in sheet, coil, booklet and vending machine formats (the design also used on postal cards), the stamp served for most of its lifetime to pay the domestic single-letter rate (along with rates to several other countries), though the 1965 tariff reduction saw it used mainly for domestic postcards.

Immaculately arrayed and exquisitely annotated, this is an exhibit sure to thrill the most ardent of Marianne fans. Imaged in full online.
