 Salmon coloured King of Portugal essay



Note 1 - 'PRINCE CONSORT ESSAY: This essay was produced for Henry Archer in 1850 in connection with his proposal to print and perforate postage stamps for Great Britain. He claimed that by using the surface printing method he could print stamps cheaper than the more costly line-engraved process used by Perkins, Bacon and Petch.   The result was that the British Government managed to persuade Perkins,  Bacon and Petch to reduce their price. Henry Archer, along with the engraver he hired to create the Prince Consort Essay were interviewed by the British Government in the Report From The Select Committee On Postage Labels Stamps (1852). The Report also includes information that De La Rue was consulted on Archer's proposal. Thanks to Tim Burgess for this information.
