Lot# 6063 - Auction 234-243

  • Lot# : 6063 Chile

    Lithographed by Henri Gillet 1854 (April-August): 5 c. red-brown, five Lithographed examples and five Desmadryl recess Santiago printing 5 c. red-brown, all good to fine used applied by shade on the original Joaquin Galvez 'Our Discovery' page - proving that Desmadryl printed the engraved issue as well as the Lithographed. Unfortunately, Mr. Galvez has since been proved incorrect in this assertion as it is now confirmed that Henri Gillet printed the litho issue. A fascinating and historic philatelic document.rnProvenance: Collection Joaquin Galvez; Collection Jean Dupont, Balsse, May 1981, lot 161.
