He gave the very first lecture to the society on 29 May 1869 on "The earliest Sydney stamps and on Proofs of the Sydney Views". The original block of 38 was cut between 1968 and 1973 by John R. Boker leaving this left hand block of fifteen as the largest multiple and showing a large part of the fourth vertical row, and a block of ten (2 x 5) from the fifth and sixth vertical rows which later appeared in Corinphila sale 58 on May 1975 (lot 6001), and thence went into the Victor Frankenstein collection.rnrnAs a block of 38:rnProvenance: Sir Daniel Cooper (1860).
