H is for History

I think history could apply to so many stamps.

In this case it is one about the history of Spain - the Treaty of Tordesillas, where Spain and Portugal divided the newly discovered (to Europeans) eastern and western lands between them.

  5. I have similar feelings as Agi: the land robbing - and situation of the original inhabitants of the Ameicas in present times - of course is a very sad part of history.But the stamp in itself I love, as cartoonesk stamps are my all-time favourite ones.

    1. History is rough - I often wonder what it would be like if mesoamerican societies had not been subdued. I didn't know that you liked cartoon stamps the best.
