George Eliot 200th Birth Anniversary - 85p Sheet of Ten
Another of Eliot and Lewes’ favourite walks appears to have been along the east coast of Jersey to the north of Mont Orgueil: "Here we had the green or rocky slope on one side of us and on the other the calm sea stretching to the coast of France, visible on all but the murkiest days. But the murky days were not many during our stay, and our evening walks round the coast usually showed us a peaceful, scarcely rippled sea, splashing gently on the purple pebbles of the little scalloped bays.” The stamp sheets give the discerning collector access to all the printer's marks and any additional information on the selvedges.
