The collection consists of 2 volumes of stamps and covers from Venezuela from 1859 - 1876 and one volume of La Guairá local stamps.


The specialized collection of Venezuela was anonymously donated on October 1, 1976 (Accession Number 322750 & 322761) and on December 22, 1961 (Accession Number 240340).


The first two albums include the early issues of Venezuela (Scott 1 – 20) and their overprints (Scott 40 - 48).  These albums also include reconstructed rows and full sheets.  The third album contains the local post from La Guairá, with the exception of the La Guairá Numeral Issues and Jesurun Issue from Curaçao. Plating studies and reconstructed rows and sheets are also seen in this album.
