Professor Pavlov of Bulgaria, author and collector, 1932-2018

Recommended Posts

Professor Petko Pavlov passed away. 

He was well known scientist, awards enthusiast and researcher. Many of you know him as author of the most complete and famous catalog on Bulgarian awards (1st and 2nd editions):

Besides this collector's bible, he also authored other books on Bulgarian awards and badges.

His work contributed greatly to research, categorization and popularization of Bulgarian Royal and Communist period awards. He was frequently mentioned in the posts on this forum. 

This is really sad news, he was great historian, true to his values, committed to his family, and an example of integrity for all and we always felt a deep sense of respect for him. 
Our sincerest condolences to the Pavlov family and friends during this difficult time, our hearts and prayers are with them.
He will be truly missed.

A true scholar and gentleman who shared his understanding on the widest and, in the 1980's especially, a non-political basis.  Professor Petko Pavlov's personal knowledge and professional research attributes, his access to then sensitive archives and his ability to communicate clearly yielded extraordinary results which he freely communicated.  Several personal meetings revealed his gracious and kind personality which further enhanced his impressive contributions.

It is a very sad news The Collector's World lost a significant scholar, author and collector.

His work has been  used as a main reference by collectors from all around the world  - and in my humble opinion will be used many years to come


I can add my sincerest condolences to the Pavlov family and friends during this difficult time, 
Our hearts and prayers are with them.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
