BRITISH COMMONWEALTH SOUTH AFRICA - Cape of Good Hope
1855-63 1p rose, with oval Perkins, Bacon "Cancelled" handstamp, unused without gum, margins all around, v.f. example of this scarce stamp, with 2020 Royal certificate. According to Stanley Gibbons, this handstamp was applied on six examples of issues available in 1861 which were then given to members of Sir Rowland Hill's family. Only a handful of these scarce items are known to be in private hands and the catalog value reflects their scarcity. (The "CANCELED" handstamps were applied to just 450 of Perkins Bacon's classic stamps, making these elusive issues favorites among advanced collectors of British Commonwealth. As printers of the world's first stamps, Perkins Bacon produced the iconic 1d Black in 1840, as well the Cape of Good Hope triangles; the Chalon Heads for Bahamas, Grenada, Natal, New Zealand & Queensland; the Britannia stamps of Barbados, Mauritius & Trinidad among many others. However the very production of these "souvenirs" was to lose Perkins Bacon their government contract to produce Postage Stamps and their demise was in large part due to these few "Canceled" stamps. On 18 April 1861, Ormond Hill, nephew of the great Roland Hill, wrote to the head of Perkins Bacon and Co. requesting a few stamps for his friends, appropriately cancelled to render them worthless for postage. Within a few days, displaying a lack of good judgement, Joshua Bacon agreed to supply six examples of every stamp they had in stock and blocks of six were prepared and handstamped "CANCELLED" within an oval of bars, twice. The stamps, with or without the "cancelled" obliteration, were not Perkins Bacon's property to give (no matter how well connected the recipient) and once out in the public domain the resulting political storm eventually ended the existence of a great printing company. The story is beautifully told in Peter Jaffe's book "Cancelled By Perkins Bacon", published by Spink & Son Ltd) SG

Finally, he was appointed as a delegate to the second Pan-American Conference in 1901 through the following year. In 1903, he was appointed as the Minister to Argentina, and though he only served in that position for one year, President Theodore Roosevelt later remarked that he had begun a "new United States-Argentine era". He was then appointed as Minister to Panama and then to Colombia. In 1907, he was appointed as the first Director General of the Bureau of American Republics, an international organization that was renamed as the Pan American Union in 1910 (and subsequently reorganized in 1948 as the Organization of American States). He served in this capacity for fourteen years. On his death, the New York Times commented that he had "done more than any other person of his generation to promote closer relations among the American republics")

A rarity, probably unique (Dowbor-Mosnicki was born to medieval Polish nobility. In 1884 he joined the Russian military and graduated from the 2nd Konstantin Military School and studied at the General Staff Academy and graduated in 1902. He served in Manchuria during the Russo-Japanese War as a staff officer with the First Siberian Corps and was appointed a senior staff adjutant with the 7th Infantry Division. During World War I, he was temporarily put in charge of the staff of the Russian 1st Army on January 17, 1917, five weeks before the February Revolution that overthrew Tsar Nicholas II. Among the Poles living within the Russian Empire, roughly 700,000 of them were serving in the Russian military and they began forming a Polish army to fight for a "united and free Poland". In August, Dowbor-Mosnicki was appointed commander of the newly formed Polish 1st Corps in Russia. He was able to take advantage of the new government's weakness, to form three divisions in Belarus by January 1918. In May 1918, Dowbor-Mosnicki was forced to sign an agreement with Germany that led to the disarmament and effective dissolution of the Corps by July 1918, at which point he moved to Poland. The agreement was criticized by some pro-independence Polish politicians, but it preserved the core of the Polish military, which proved decisive later that year)

He writes "Dear Dad and Mom, I am now in Asia. We left Vladikavkaz at 6 am Tuesday morning. We traveled in two carriages. The Sandgrens and engineer Fernstrom used the smaller one and I was on the one with the luggage. I had the better view. Now and then we changed places. From Vladikavkaz one follows the Georgian military road. It is a marvel of engineering, snaking along the vertical mountain sides. For several hours one has the top of Mt. Kazbek above one's head. It is overwhelmingly magnificent. The mountains are incredible. They disappear in a bluish fog and are covered by snow. There are no words to describe them. In any case we traveled all day and changed horses at every station. I have twenty photographs of the mountains and stations. We continued all through the night because Sandgren wanted to meet someone in Tiflis. The road is 20 Swedish miles (200 km) long. Where it is very steep one drives with 5-6 horses. We were blessed with gorgeous moonshine and imposing fairytale pictures. Tiflis is a nice city. I am very tired after the journey through the night. Greetings to all from Sven")

1909 (6 Sep) picture postcard franked with 3k red, sent from Sevastopol to Alupka (a resort city located in the Crimean peninsula), by the zoologist Ivan Ivanovich Puzanov (addressed to Dr. V. Ya. Polunin who owned a dacha in New Simeiz and was Puzanov's neighbor). With handstamp "Steamship Meotida". (The message reads, "Honorable neighbor! Did you hear the whistle when the Meotida passed New Simeiz at 6 AM on 4 September? I wonder. I think only the janitor Stefan heard it. In three days, or even sooner, we will once again pass Simeiz and then I will come ashore. You are welcome to inspect the ship but be warned: there are no sick people on board. On the 15th I will finally disembark at Simeiz and stay there for a week. Regards, I. Puzanov-Chernomorsky." In 1909, while a student at Moscow University, Puzanov obtained some practical experience at the Sevastopol Biological Station by taking part in an expedition to collect specimens of marine life along the southern coast of Crimea from Cape Lucullus (north of Sevastopol) to Kerch. The Ministry of Trade and Industry put the small steamship Meotida at the disposal of the expedition from 15 August to 15 September. In his book, Puzanov says that on 4 September, the ship was returning to Sevastopol from Kerch; on 6 September (when this card was mailed) he and the ship were in Sevastopol; on 9 September the ship made a 30 minute stop in Simeiz; on 15 September the expedition ended in Yalta and the ship returned to Sevastopol without him; he sailed to Simeiz that evening on the yacht Tatiana; at the end of September he returned to Moscow. His signature is a humorous imitation of those of famous explorers who were given the right to add territorial names to their family names, Chernomorsky referring to the Black Sea. The photograph on the back has an arrow pointing to the Sevastopol Biological Station which still exists in the same building under the name A. O. Kovalevsky Institute of Marine Biology Research of the Russian Academy of Sciences), Ex-Casey

1911 (21 Mar) a declared-value cover sent to Grunau, Germany from the "Amur-Zeya" volost administration post office in Markovo, franked with 2x10k dark blue, postmarked Amursko-Zeiskoye (17.3.11 and 21.3), Blagoveshchensk (23.4), and Grunau (10.6) on arrival. The letter contained 10 rubles. It was mistakenly treated as a domestic letter and the sender was charged the domestic rate of 20 kopecks (10 kopecks for weight and 10 kopecks for insurance) instead of the foreign rate of 24 kopecks (10 kopecks for weight, 4 kopecks for insurance, and 10 kopecks for registration). This letter left Markovo on 21 March and traveled 28 miles by postal carriage to the Blagoveshchensk post office. Unlike uninsured correspondence, money letters were not transported along the shore of the Amur River while it was freezing or thawing, so the letter remained in the post office until the first postal steamer went upriver. This is the only recorded mail from Amursko-Zeiskoye, where postal operations began in 1902. Illustrated in BJRP No. 53.

I am the only French engineer along with three Russian engineers sent by the Russian banks. My mission will take only a few months and involves inspecting irrigation projects in Khiva, near the Aral Sea, and in the Caucasus, near the Persian border. I am permitted to write only post cards. Russian Turkestan, and especially the important border fortress at Termez, is closed to foreigners. I needed a special authorization from the Tsar. The country is very interesting.
