If you are new to our auctions, please see our general auction information page.

The figure at the end of each description is our estimate, in pounds sterling. Bids are accepted above or below this figure, although bids below about 75% or 80% estimate only have a tiny chance of success (and are not normally sold at less than about two-thirds of estimate). Estimates are in Pounds Sterling do not include the 10% buyer's premium.

After the main listings you will find various information and instructions. This is followed by a sample bid form, and a copy of the the notes that appear on the reverse of our bid forms.

This is a public auction, in which written/telephone/e-mail bids are also accepted. If you are bidding with us for the first time, please bid by two of these methods with the same bids (e.g. by post and by phone, or by telephone and by e-mail), or bid in good enough time for us to get back in touch with you with any queries.

NEW BIDDERS;
Please note that bidders who are not already known to us are required to bid in the first instance by two different methods. The options available are email, telephone, or post.
New customers attending one of our sales in person for the first time, and intending to bid, are invited to make themselves known before the sale starts. This saves the auctioneer from having to ask for a name during the sale.

           EDINBURGH POSTCARDS
      80     Set of cards published by George Stewart & Co. of Edinburgh, certainly some of the earliest,

Picture Postcards
              and their Publishers
(Anthony Byatt, 1978) it says ... when the postal regulations were
              relaxed in September 1894, a set of views of Edinburgh, printed by process blocks, was
              quickly released. The views were very small and placed in the top left hand corner of the
              card.
              Each is a 120 x 74mm white card with monochrome illustration on front, text on back (
POST
         
      CARD/THE ADDRESS ONLY TO BE WRITTEN ON THIS SIDE and HALFPENNY/STAMP within
              interrupted box.
               The series of cards is as follows; {i} Edinburgh from the Forth (light brown), {ii} a duplicate
              of the same (mounted so as to show reverse), {iii} Nelson's Monument (light brown), {iv}
              same (light green), {v} Edinburgh from the Forth (dull purple), {vi} St. Giles' Spire (light
              green), {vii} Scott Monument and Castle (purple-brown), and {viii} same (grey-violet).
              Cards are in fine and fresh condition, particularly fresh for their age, all are unused, and are
              mounted with photo-corners on written-up pages. A rare group, significant to Edinburgh
              collectors and to collectors of postcard history; we can remember seeing them displayed by
              the collector who acquired them probably 20 or 30 years ago, and have not seen any others
              since. (8)                   ..                 ..                 ..               ..                   ..               ..                200.+
     
81     Two cards from George Stewart & Co.'s court size Edinburgh series (published 1898),
              both unused (one with bend), plus two coloured vignette cards (c.1899-1900), and a
              reasonable range of 45 cards of various parts of the city inc. some scarcer. (49)      ..                    80.

     
     Following is a section of 51 lots. This represents the greatest part of a large and important
              collection of Edinburgh cards which has been assembled over the last twenty years with
              much searching, and admirable levels of determination and spending. There are of course
              standard cards included, but very many are unusual, and there are scarcer cards throughout.
              Having taken an interest in such material for many years, I can say that there are many views
              here I have never seen before. Almost all cards are of the classic period (c.1900-1920).
              Duplication is minimal.
              As a matter of interest, the collector kept a record of the cost of the cards. Some may have
              been overpriced, and some may have been bargains, while others were bought when prices
              were quite different from today's. The total cost is quoted at the end of each description, but
              will not always be relevant.
