Other stamps and covers will never be owned, let alone often seen, so I thought a thread on World Philatelic Treasures to showcase these rarities would be good "eye candy" all in the one place.
For example Richard Debney owns this stunning block of 4 of the Cape of Good Hope 1d Red Woodblocks, one of my favourite collecting areas, and it's such a joy to own Stevensons book (approx. 65 years ago) which illustrates this example, and then be able to view this image.

If you have one to show, please post or don't say it yours if you prefer the privacy. But anyone who posts please post a large clear quality scan.
I have many stored images to post, but I don't own the stamps or covers.
Please don't post something as a joke, I'll ask for it to be deleted. Maybe someone can start a thread on the world's worst stamps?
Sometimes... you just need to drool!
