Description

Unique and excellent quality, 19th century frigate collection, preserved together with the original Collection Catalogue (hand-calibrated ink in the era).

The catalogue ("Cathalog") of the collection is in the form of a booklet sewn on the back of a 28-page booklet on 21.5 x 18 cm handmade paper.

The collection consists of over 600 lacquer stamp prints until the end of the nineteenth century, recognized, described and numbered from "1" to "660".

All prints are displayed and described on 32 display boards from the era, each measuring 25 x 22 cm.

The boards are made of very rigid cardboard, and the stiffening bars and back are covered with green paper.

All seals recognized and described by a collector in the 19th century.

The lion's share - in the office or near office states.

Among them many collector's rarities, among others:

·       seals of families connected with Poland - e.g. the Nostitz family,

·       seals of short-lived, side lines of rare German principalities,

·       seals of briefly existing European families,

·       seals of famous figures such as Baron von Munchhausen,

·       impressive seals with so-called high relief,

·       seals with the effect of the so-called matt drawing (similarly to mirror coins),

·       seals with unusual colours - e.g. two-colour, gold-red seal No. 651.

A unique antiquarian object of high historical and documentary value (original Collection Catalogue) - worth recommending to the best collections and libraries.

                            Excellent material for scientific work.
