POSTAL CARDS: 1897 Scenic Issue printer's proof on very thin card with printed banner in red but no stamp & "KATOOMBA FALLS, NS WALES" in black on the reverse, a couple of very minor blemishes. Rare. Ex Dr Ed Druce and John Bell (NSW).

A group of 29 of these delightful essays came to light only in 1984, comprising six different designs in a range of colours, some with 'Stamp'-within-a-box printed on the address side. They were almost certainly prepared by William Gullick, the NSW Government Printer. All have minor abrasions on the address side where removed from a reference book.

1943 (Aug 19) stampless cover to Japan with two boxed chops in magenta & circular Censor's chop of Hashiba in red, peripheral blemishes. With the lengthy enclosed letter from Tadao Hashiba to a family member: Very few entire letters from the Japanese on Nauru have survived. Ex John Darnell: acquired at the Prestige auctiuon of 17/2/2012 for $2645.

The writer states (translated) "...My aim is to do all I can not to die in this insignificant place. Contagious disease, amoebic dysentery, is rife here and not a few have died from it....A deadly struggle is being waged day and night in the Solomons...though one is in no doubt that Japan will prevail...everyone without exception, officers and men, has had dengue fever this past month...I wonder what fate has in store for me...So far I've had only one letter." In addition to the ravages of tropical diseases, some 300 Japanese died of starvation & many others resorted to cannibalism. Nauru was surrendered to the Australians on 13.9.1945.

1882 7c Postal Card to France with Weltevreden cds, superb strike of the rare French 'LIGNE P/3/JUIL/82/PAQ FR No 1' cds on the face, 'LIGNE N/28JUIL/82/PAQ FR No 9' transit b/s & 'MODANE A PARIS/4/AOUT/82' TPO transit cds in red on the face, Paris arrival b/s, minor blemishes. [The French Ligne P was a feeder service between Batavia & Singapore only. Raymond Salles at Vol V page 125 states (translated) "...the small number of pieces known makes it impossible to reconstruct the complete schedules from January 1867 to the end in 1884". In almost every case, Salles illustrates and quotes a price or gives a rating for every marking. For Ligne P, he doesn't even provide an illustration, an obvious indication of great rarity]
