Lady Mairi: Philatelist

An article on the BBC's website has just caught my eye, pertaining to the late Lady Mairi Bury's stamp collection.

Lady Mairi was one of the nation's greatest stamp collectors.

Her collection is expected to raise £2.6m at auction in Sotheby's, Bond Street, on 24-26 November, 2010.

Sotheby's have described it as one of the finest collections of British stamps to come on to the market in the past 25 years.

The auction-house said it would need three days to sell off 2,185 lots.
