BEWITCHING PUG MAXIMUM CARD * TURKS & CAICOS ISLANDS
Country: TURKS & CAICOS
Condition: DELIGHTFUL PUG MAXIMUM CARD * TURKS & CAICOS ISLANDS
Description: Pugs come from China, and the first mention of them is in a Confucius book (551 BC). They arrived in Europe in the late 1600s (Holland) and then crossed the Channel in 1688 to become the favourite pets of William and Mary Of England. In the early 1800s Josephine Bonaparte was enamored with her pug "Fortune". Other famous pug owners include: Voltaire, William Hogarth, the Marquise of Pompadour, Marie Antoinette of France, the Duke of Enghien, Quen Charlotte (wife of Charles III), Queen Victoria and the Duke of Windsor and his wife Mrs Wallis Simpson-Warfield, Duchess of Windsor, Princess Grace of Monaco, fashion designer Valentino, Andy Wharol, and Lena Horne. ********** A Maximum Card is a picture postcard (normally about 4" x 6") with a postage stamp affixed on the view side cancelled (postmarked) with maximum concordance between elements (depiction on stamp matching the depiction on postcard - or elements of it -- with a postmark that is as closely related as possible to what is depicted on stamp and postcard). This concordance is not always possible.

1832 VENICE PASSPORT FOR PROFESSOR OF ITALIAN ELOQUENCE PIER ALESSANDRO PARAVIA
Condition: 1832 VENICE PASSPORT FOR PROFESSOR OF ITALIAN ELOQUENCE PIER ALESSANDRO PARAVIA
Description: 12 October 1832 - PASSPORT issued IN THE NAME OF HIS MAJESTY THE MOST AUGUST EMPEROR FRANCIS I KING OF HUNGARY, BOHEMIA AND LOMBARDY VENETIA, ARCHDUKE OF AUSTRIA to ITALIAN ELOQUENCE PROFESSOR PIER ALESSANDRO PARAVIA for his trip to TURIN (Torino) *** Beautiful embossed dry seal of the EARL OF SPAUR, PRESIDENT OF THE IMPERIAL ROYAL GOVERNMENT OF THE VENETIAN PROVINCES, signed by him and co-signed by BARON PASCOTINIZ. As an extraordinary sign of respect no personal and phisiognomy details of Professor Paravia are filled in in the appropriate section at left. Amazingly enough the document is not co-signed by the General Chief of Police. Most importantly Paravia's signature is placed in the appropriate section at lower left, just above the dry seal. The verso shows a plethora of well struck hand stamps such as: MILAN - VISA OF THE IMPERIAL ROYAL GENERAL DIRECTORATE OF POLICE -- a similar one for VERONA where the document was officially repaired by the authorities (evidence of this is their hand stamps over the patches) -- border with Kingdom of Sardinia Police Quarters at BOFFALORA -- KINGDOM OF SARDINIA CONSULATE IN MILAN with crowned Coat of Arms, beautifully struck; stamped and signed in Turin by the AUSTRIAN CONSULATE IN TORINO; stamped and signed at the ROYAL SECRETARIAT OF THE FOREIGN OFFICE OF THE KINGDOM OF SARDINIA in Torino; then below at lower left corner a most beautiful strike of red oval hand stamp ROYAL GOVERNMENT IN TORINO - PASSPORT OFFICE (SAVOY EAGLE HOLDING SAVOY SHIELD) -- plus unusual border hand stamp CARABINIERI REALI PRESSO IL PONTE TICINO at SAN MARTINO SICCOMARIO (repeated at bottom right corner); and POLIZIA GENERALE COMANDO DI NOVARA (crowned Savoy Coat of Arms) ***** Pier Alessandro Paravia (1797 - 1857) was an Italian writer, scholar, philanthropist and professor of Italian eloquence at the University of Turin. Born in Zadar, he grew up in Venice. In 1818 he graduated in law at Padua and served in Venice as a state official for twelve years, until 1832 when he was called to the chair of Eloquence of the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Turin. He had already published biographies of writers and artists, and a popular translation of the Letters of Pliny the Younger. In Torino he commenced an even more prolific period, in which he wrote studies on Torquato Tasso and Ariosto; essays on Proven├žal literature and even Chinese novels (which he was one of the first to study in Italy). In addition to literature, he was also interested in history and politics. Paravia was monitored by the Austro-Hungarians, owing to his fondness of Italian patriotic ideals *** Overall condition of the document is fine for this type of ephemera. The document is in one piece (of course), well preserved -- creases caused by folding the travel document and some imperfections are to be expected for this type of memorabilia. The contemporary patches and repairs were done carefully by the authorities and are not disfiguring. Most of the hand stamps are clearly struck...a rare occurrence *** AMAZINGLY IMPRESSIVE, UNIQUE, AND HIGHLY DESIRABLE!!

VERDI * BALLO IN MASCHERA * SAN MARINO MAXIMUM CARD
Country: United States
Condition: VERDI BALLO IN MASCHERA
Description: RARE ERBA MATCHING POSTMARK * A Maximum Card is a picture postcard with a matching postmarked postage stamp affixed on the view side. The ideal maximum card has concordance between elements (depiction on stamp matching the depiction on postcard - or elements of it -- with a postmark that is as closely related as possible to what is depicted on stamp and postcard). However such a perfect concordance is not always 100% achievable because at the time the maximum card was processed there were no matching postmarks available.
