A Philatelist's Life of Columbus

By Edward K. Thurlow

EVENTEEN stamp-issuing countries (U. S., Argentine Republic, Canal Zone, Chile, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Guatemala, Honduras, Jamaica, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru, Porto Rico, Salvador, Trinidad, and Venezuela) have issued stamps with Columbian designs. They are all in the Western Hemisphere. As one might expect, they were nearly all issued during the quadricentennial years, 1892-1906. To . Chile, however, must be given the credit of particular honors paid to the great discoverer. That country, which Columbus never even came near to seeing, began its stamp issues, in 1853, with a design showing the head of Columbus, and, with the exception of the 1904 issue, used no other face on its stamps until 1910. It has issued one hundred and nine major varieties, with five different types

of head. In point of numbers, Chile leads the list. Salvador comes next, with one hundred and two, while Nicaraugua is a poor third, with thirty. In all, I have counted three hundred and nineteen varieties of Columbians.

Other countries which have used the

($4, $5), Peru 1909, and Salvador, 1896 and 1921. We look in vain for recognition of

Columbus among the stamps of Italy, his native country, or of Spain, whose dominions he so greatly enlarged. Even the burst of philatelic enthusiasm for him, in the '90s, produced no echoes in the Old World. Alas, they had no Seebeck! As early as 1474 Columbus is said to have corresponded with Toscanelli, the Florentine astronomer and map-maker. The Dominican Republic, in its commemorative issue of 1890-1900, has pictured Toscanelli on the 20 centavos stamp.

Columbus began negotiations with Spain as early as 1486, but was unable to interest Ferdinand and Isabella sufficiently, because of the Moorish wars. But in 1491, after having tried in vain to interest the kings of England and France, he returned to renew his negotiations with the sovereigns of Spain. Here we might place the U. S. 1893 5c stamp.

The matter was referred to a junta, or commission. The Dominican Republic
