1905 De La Rue "Post Office of Africa" SAMPLE BOOKLET TRIAL provided in response to a request from the Orange River Colony postal authorities for a 2/- booklet. Salmon covers (see scans) with interleaves between four panes of green (½d) and two panes of red (1d) De La Rue dummy stamps. Couple minor imperfections as expected, VF intact unexploded. An exhibition showpiece for connoisseur, likely unique from the De La Rue Archives. The booklet proposal remained unaccepted. Buckley & Marriott (1976) discuss and illustrate the booklet trial with the commentary "There is a complete booklet in the De La Rue Archives and a dismembered booklet in the Reginald Phillips GB collection in the National Postal Museum, London. No other examples appear to have been recorded." See additional images below.
