[15 pieces] The Azore Islands are a Portuguese archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean, west of Lisbon, well known for its volcanic landscape. Much of the contents of this collection were written or printed contemporary to the Portuguese Civil War (1828-1834), which had strong repercussions in the Azores. In 1829, in Vila da Praia, the liberals won over the absolutists, making the island of Terceira the main headquarters of the new Portuguese regime and also where the Council of Regency (Conselho de RegÍncia) of Mary II of Portugal was established. Beginning in 1868, Portugal issued its stamps overprinted with "ACORES" for use in the islands. Between 1892 and 1906, it also issued separate stamps for the three administrative districts of the time on the Azore Islands. Much of these contents reflect the ongoing relationship between the established land and government in Portugal and its station on the Azores. Bookseller Inventory # 6527
