Collections and Mixed Lots.                                                      
        1     Extensive world accumulation in two cartons, in biscuit tins and plastic tubs. Although the
         
     bulk is large quantities of cheaper stamps and duplicates (usually sorted by country or area),
         
     we note a few UK booklets, and others that may be items intended for inclusion in a main
         
     collection but still to be added. Many 1,000s. Estimate is a guess. þ      ..        £300.
        2     Box with modern but useful accum. of often larger items (sheets/sheetlets/m.s./booklets/

         
     packs, etc.) inc. USA, Channel Is., IoM, UK, Australia, etc. – the UK inc. u.m. and c.t.o.
         
     modern inc. some more difficult. (Many 100s) þ              ..                   ..               ..                £150.
        3     Fairly small box, but with quite decent quality contents. Much European, and with lots of
         
     stamps/items cat. at least a few pounds each. Noted are Germany, Canada (inc. Newfound-

        5     An old Gibbons album (1873 edition) with an interesting though stuck-down world coll-
         
     ection. Only slightly picked at some time, and containing mainly 19th Century issues with
         
     some later additions. Includes two reasonable UK penny blacks, better Norway, German
         
     States and other European, some Commonwealth and Overseas. (1,116)                ..                £120.
        6     Accumulation and remainders from a much larger collection, all in one carton. Due to the

         
     original source, we guess this is worth checking – some UK pmk. interest, UK souvenir
         
     packs, mixed albums/stockbooks, loose world stamps, a UN colln., etc. (1,000s) þ £120.
        7     Two file boxes with a general collection. Includes parts of a 1990 World Cup colln., a

     (stamps and covers). (Many 100s) þ              ..               ..                   ..               ..                £100.
        9     Fifteen various stockbooks and one album of mixed non-European countries (includes
         
     Commonwealth). Generally excludes larger countries – good though not scarce ranges.

      10     Old Ideal album with printed spaces to 1917 and some stamps of later dates added. Odd

     into). Condition typically mixed. (c.450 Commonwealth, 640 foreign) þ                 ..                    80.
      11     Large carton of very mixed odds and remainders. Includes several stockbooks, loose, much

      15     Small bundle of six remainder club books with all-world content. Remainder PTSA c.£260.

         
     (generally at about 20% cat. – but generally not accounting for condition, so better or worse
         
     value). Another book of UK used QV to KG5 not priced but s.t.c. c.£900. (100s) Also a
         
     Rhodesia 1905 Falls 2/6 m.m. (cat.£100. but with repaired tear and short perfs.) 50.
      16     Two boxes with a strange mix – some loose world stamps, UK military/aviation items inc.

         
     wartime covers, club book remainders, etc. Worth checking through. þ ..            50.

Ü     Windmills; see Stamps (Thematic).
      Ü     Tuck's Oilettes; the following section of 14 lots is all part of one very extensive collection,
         
     of which this is not yet the whole (a further section will possibly appear in our next
         
     Collectables in December). These were collected assiduously over many years, and some
         
     cards though quite unassuming are actually quite scarce.
              The collection is arranged in albums according to series number. Each card appears to have

         
     been mounted by the use of four double-sided self-adhesive tabs on the back. This has left
         
     problems in the removal of cards from pages. We have tried several; some tabs detach easily
         
     and cleanly (leaving little or no trace), some seem to be stuck solidly and immovably, but
         
     most are between these extremes (coming off with care, and often taking some of the surface
         
     off the card's reverse, to a greater or lesser extent). If viewing these lots, please do not carry
         
     out your own experiments !  We will be happy to explain and demonstrate.
              Descriptions give the volume numbers, range of series numbers covered, approximate

         
     number of cards, and sometimes some interesting contents.

FORTHCOMING AUCTIONS; Our next stamp auction will be on 25 September 2006.
 This auction is conducted according to the "Philatelic Auctioneers Standard Terms and Conditions of Sale" (available if requested).
A Buyer’s Premium of 10% (inclusive of global v.a.t.) will be added to the sale price of all lots.
Postal Bidders should remember that they may give alternative bids, or state a total spending limit.
 Telephone bids are accepted, but must later be confirmed in writing.
Material can be accepted at any time for inclusion in future sales. Our commission is 10% of the sale price, plus administration fee of £1 per lot + £4.75 per vendor (all plus v.a.t.). Full details on request.
 We DO NOT charge buyers a handling charge per lot, nor is there VAT added to any sale prices.
Please bid early. In the case of equal bids, the lot will be sold to the person whose bid was received first (unless free bidding in the room equals the top book-bid, although the Auctioneer will try to regulate the bidding in such a way as to avoid this).
 Apart from viewing the lots in person, you can get a better description of any lot, by telephoning or writing.
 (Photocopies are available, at a charge of 15p per copy (colour copies A4 pages; 1st copy £1, 50p per page thereafter), plus postage.)
Remember the Buy or Bid Sale - bring items along on the night. We will try to sell them for you, at a charge of 10% + 25p (optional insurance 1% extra). Have a look at what’s on offer before and during the main auction. You can buy items outright or place a bid. (Larger lots delivered to our shop are charged £1 per lot entry fee.)
The annual subscription for our auction catalogues (paper copy) is currently £5 for inland UK addresses. If you are not already on our mailing list, please send us £5 with a note of your name and address. Regular bidders and buyers may qualify for free renewal. Rates abroad are EEC countries £4, other European countries £7, Overseas £10.
Successful postal bidders should note that postage stamps are not an acceptable means of paying your account.
 Prices realised for this sale will be published with our next catalogue. If you are not normally on our mailing list, the List of Prices Realised can be had by simply sending us a stamped addressed envelope. Alternatively, you can be put on our auction mailing list (see above).
The telephone number at the Stewart’s-Melville Pavilion is  0131 551 2331 (mobile 07974 962649).
 Open Bids ("Buy Bids") are not normally accepted. If such bids are made, they will be taken to mean a bid of ten times the printed estimate.
Any invoices remaining unpaid fourteen days from the auction date (or after delivery to a postal buyer) will attract interest at the rate of 2% per month or part thereof.
