H.R. Harmer, Inc. Sale - 3023

The Bert Boonstra Collection of the 1901 Pan-American Exposition - October 26, 2018

The Bert Boonstra Collection of the 1901 Pan-American Exposition is a love-letter to the world’s fair that has captured the imagination of so many in the century-plus since it took place. With an emphasis on exposition cancels, picture postcards, and foreign destinations, the collection abounds with material that is not only scarce but also visually stunning. Amongst the foreign destinations are such far-off places as Gibraltar, Bolivia, and Tunisia. Several cancels Mr. Boonstra collected are amongst the scarcest recognized by Bomar. But, regardless of rarity, this catalogue is simply a joy to peruse for its eye-appeal. Mr. Boonstra attempted to not just tell the story of the Pan-American Exposition, but how the events of the fair shaped American history for decades to come. We feel confident saying that he accomplished this mission admirably. Individual highlights in the sale include:
  • 2c Pan-American single on illustrated exposition cover with exposition cancel (Lot 703)
  • 5c Pan-American used with 8c Puerto Rico on registered letter from Puerto Rico to Brazil (Lot 836)
  • 1c and 2c Pan-Americans used on censored cover to Ceylon (Lot 844)
  • 5c Pan-American used on illustrated exposition cover to Tunisia (Lot 932)
