Died. Henry Revell HARMER, 96, founder and chairman of London's 48year-old H. R. Harmer Ltd., world's biggest stamp dealer, who revolutionized the trade by introducing art-market-style auctioneering while making fond philatelists, during the '20s and '30s, of such customers as then-King Carol II of Rumania and Farouk of Egypt with canny hints that rare stamps are more portable than crown jewels; of a stroke; in Horsham, England.

And a little more

Stamps v. Stinks. To Harmer, which has sold and resold more than $42 million worth of stamps, the Caspary auction will be the biggest in a series of philatelic firsts that began 61 years ago. The family-owned company was founded by Henry Revell Harmer, who collected stamps as a schoolboy, decided after taking his first job in a chemical plant that he "could do better with stamps than with stinks." Harmer roamed the world in search of rarities, opened his first stamp auction in London in 1918. Harmer sold $56,000 worth of stamps his first season, trebled his business in the next ten years. Among Harmer customers: King George V (who sometimes squeezed the family budget to add to his priceless Commonwealth collection), King Carol II of Rumania, Alfonso XIII of Spain, and Egypt's King Fouad (whose stamps were sold by Harmer after Farouk's abdication). In 1954-55, its biggest year yet, Harmer's British, U.S. and Australian offices sold nearly $2,000,000 worth of stamps.
