Lot 1037
Lebanon, Magnificent Highly-Specialized Five-Volume Collection to 1980. An absolutely amazing, extraordinarily comprehensive collection, keenly assembled in five pristine Palo hingeless albums; apparently complete mint for the period, with a very well-filled used collection also included on a second set of pages, but the real treasure lies in the literally hundreds of major varieties: we note scores of overprint varieties on the 1920s-30s issues, including inverts, doubles, etc.; dozens of premium souvenir sheets like footnote-listed rarities, unlisted issues, printing errors (e.g., printed on both sides, double impressions) plus deluxe sheets, printed-on-gum-side varieties, etc.; the Airmails are simply amazing, and we also note the rare Madagascar UPU proofs, the scarce Portuguese "Colonias" UPU issues, covers, Austrian, Turkish and Palestine issues used in Lebanon and much, much more, Fine to Very Fine or better, a unique collection in all respects, inspection invited.
Estimate $6,000 - 8,000
