Stamp Collecting as a Pastime eBook

This eBook from the Gutenberg Project consists of approximately 72 pages of information about Stamp Collecting as a Pastime.

No. 79.—­The “Queen’s Portrait” Packet. 100 Rare Colonials.  Price L1 10s.

The Thirty Shilling Packet contains 100 rare unused Postage Stamps, each one bearing a likeness of HER MAJESTY QUEEN VICTORIA.  The stamps in this packet are entirely different from those in No. 78, and purchasers of both will thus possess two hundred distinct varieties.  Most of the English Colonies are represented by carefully-selected specimens of the higher value stamps.  With this packet we present the Half-crown Diamond Jubilee Stamp; thus each purchaser subscribes that sum to H.R.H. the Prince of Wales’ Hospital Fund.

No. 80.—­The “Picturesque” Packet. 100 Pictures.  Price 12s. 6d.

Contains 100 Unused Stamps in perfect condition, each one being especially selected for beauty, quaintness, or originality of design.  Among others, we mention: 

Natives Paddling on the Congo River. 
Native Village and Scenery in the Congo District. 
A Native Village in Djibouti.  The Bridge of Sighs in Kewkiang.

ZOOLOGY IS REPRESENTED BY—­The Elephant, the Hippopotamus, the Bird of
Paradise, the Stag, the Codfish.

Three of the exquisite Portraits of Her Majesty, as depicted on the Canadian Jubilee Stamps, showing the Vignettes of the Queen in 1837 and 1897, form an appropriate addition to this choice and remarkable packet.
