Robert Brisco Earée

The Rev. Robert Brisco Earée (1846-1928) was a philatelist, known for his studies of philatelic fakes and forgeries. Philately is the study of postage stamps.

Earée was educated at Cockermouth Grammar School, a British boys' school in Cumbria, and became a priest in 1871. He followed W. D. Atlee and E. L. Pemberton as the author of a series of articles, 'The Spud Papers' (describing forgeries) in "The Philatelist". He also served as philatelic editor of "The Bazaar" [1875] . Earée compiled the classic "Album Weeds or How to Detect Forged Stamps" [1882] (3rd revised edition, 1906).

Earée was entered on the Roll of Distinguished Philatelists in 1921. [ [ British Philatelic Trust, Rowland Hill, promotion of "the study, research and dissemination of knowledge" about philately - UK Philately, Stamps and stamp collecting plus much, much more GB ] ]
