Achille Ouvré (1872-1951).

Even though he isn't as well known as Piel or Gandon or Decaris
in my opinion he was one of the best of the early French stamp
engravers, especially when one considers his portraitures.
He was also different in that he strictly worked on steel
engraved dies but none for typographic printing which many
French engravers of the 1930's did.

Here is his first issued stamp.

France Scott 295 1934

Joseph Jacquard-Lyon, inventor of an improved loom

Thank you StamperMA for your interest and the link
which I hadn't seen before.

I have almost all of his French stamps which I hope to show
eventually.

I do not have his colonial stamps and Monaco, Andorra.

Perhaps separate threads showing those would be better ?

"France and Infant"
Surtax was used for public health work.





Inscribed on the stamp is Pour sauver la race which
translates as "To save the race"

Actually what the stamp is really about is written
here on this fine site about French designers and engravers.

http://www.phil-ouest.com/Timbre.ph...er_race_1937

In the nineteenth century venereal diseases, widespread among sailors, were considered a scourge that could endanger humanity as a whole.
The fee of this stamp was for the Society of Sanitary and Moral Prophylaxis founded by Professor Alfred Fournier
first Professor of skin diseases and syphilis at the Saint Louis Hospital (Paris )
This stamp therefore demonstrates that this scourge was still regarded in the 30s as a threat to all humanity .
