Amazing material Geoff,
all new to me.
"essays for cinderellas" is also a new phrase for moi.
No catalogue existing for these examples?

Thanks, Rod. Essays and proofs are listed in varyingdetail by Yvert and Maury catalogues, but I couldn't find the Bonaparte essays there. Given the dates, perhaps an 1864 anniversary production? The Prince Imperial essays here were, I think, made available around 1902, long after the production of the originals.

Hi all. I had not posted any of my French stamps in a while (though I have been working away). A few completed pages and some new additions. I had been waiting for my last Merson issue which took FOREVER to arrive. That might be my favorite page. The Marianne's are looking very nice as well.

A lot of these posters for the 1900 Paris Universal Exposition have appeared in an earlier thread, but here is a site that has gathered many of them together. Click on any of the labels to see more clearly.

Curious, Is this Pmk, in any way notable, having Blue Pmk Ink?
First time I have met with this.
Any Issue date for this stamp in 1878?

Sc#92 Sage Pmk Paris Depart 11th December 1878

I did a little bit of digging on this.

The stamp was issued on 12 June 1878 according to Maury 2018 (with a similar later version on 19 June 1881).

If I'm reading the Maury 2009 catalogue correctly, the blue PARIS / DÉPART postmark is priced on this stamp at 14 euros (as opposed to 7 euros for PARIS / DÉPART in black).

However, I don't know why it was blue and I don't see any blue postmarks on my French stamps of the time (although I don't have many).

The asterisk before the day of the month indicates that the item was collected before the post office opened for the day.

Items from later collections (I guess from local post boxes) have a collection number such as "6E|" (with the "E" raised) for the sixth collection.
