The question was not just about the Kofman & Kallin item but also anything else published about Odessa.
The Bonhams auction also contains a large section on Odessa postmarks from earliest types upwards.

Sorry Yozhik, you are Quite right! My question "was" if the first item was listed in the auction. Seems it did not come out that way. "the" should have been "a."

Another look at the auction website indicates no pictures. Such a shame. The Odessa material is there as well as the SPb material, but lotted in such a way that you must see the lot to make a good decision on bidding.

Additionally, there are a few items on Odessa in the Rossica journal as well. Please see the index on the web site. For more information about what is in the Library, please contact the Librarian.

I have to say I agree with you the lot descriptions in the catalogue are not as full as they could have been and the absence of pictures is a real shame.

I viewed the lots on Friday and found that some similar sounding lots had vastly different material in them to someone who knows what they are looking at. some real jems were not picked out at all in the descriptions.

Given that there were a lot of notes and written up items there is really no excuse for this.

I shall be attending the auction and god willing will win a few items, if I do then I will be picking a few out to post on the samovar.

In between I have got a Xerox copy of the Kofman & Kalin booklet from Andrew Cronin, Editor of The Canadian Society of Russian Philately. A nice introduction from the beginning to 1998.
In the Bonhams auction I have made some bids. Seems I was the only bidder at least for the Odessa material because I got nearly everything.
Thanks to all for your information.
