Auction catalogue, paperback, illustrated in black & white, 32 pages, with a photocopy of the prices realised, in Very Good condition.

Maurice Burrus was the last and the greatest of the famous general collectors. His vast stamp collection brought him a profound knowledge of philately and many of his studies demonstrated this ability. Almost every rarity was represented in his collection and it even exceeded in size, value and specialisation, that formed by Ferrary. The dispersal of the Burrus collection took five years and seventy-five separate auctions or private treaty sales. This sale features nearly 300 lots of classic Brazil, Bull’s Eyes, Goat’s Eyes, and later issues.
