Blue Mauritius, book cover

Welcome to the Blue Mauritius Research Companion

This website contains biographical and bibliographical information about the Post Office Mauritius stamps and subjects related to them. It is based on my research for the book Blue Mauritius: The Hunt for the World's Most Valuable Stamps.

Lataudrie, Piet ( - 1904)

Post Office owner and Stamp collector

From the small death notice in the London Philatelist, March 1904:

M. Lataudrie was a keen collector and an able philatelist, as evidenced by his well-known work on Reprints, but it is probable that his name will always be most permanently associated with the possession of the two unused "Post Office" stamps of Mauritius, which were subsequently acquired by Mr. W. B. Avery.
