Paradise Valley Stamp Company Sale - ETH3

ETHIOPIA - the Edward Rose Collection & Michael Rogers' Air Post - October 29, 2018


We are pleased to offer another great sale of Ethiopian material presenting the Rose collection of "The First 50 Years of Postal Activity 1868 - 1918." We quote from the introduction page of the exhibit: "The purpose of this exhibit is to develop and display the first 50 years of definitive stamps and postal activity in Ethiopia. Starting with the Indian, Egyptian and Italian Post Offices followed by the Definitive Issue with it's control overprints and the Second Definitive Issue with associated overprints". Of special interest we note one of the rare Napier expedition covers. "...genuine individual issues are followed by examples of usage of the reprints which were valid for postage, forgeries and fakes. All genuine and forged postmarks are illustrated with identification criteria."

In addition to the Ethiopia collection, the associated exhibit of Eritrea is offered as one collection. This exhibit is equally well researched and presented and includes a number of scarce postal history items.

The Michael Rogers collection of Ethiopia air post is very well complemented by the air post section from Mr. Rose's collection. There is very little overlap between the two as one will note when perusing the lots. This section includes proofs/essays, the well-researched and presented stamp issues and a large number of early flight covers.
