BELGIUM ~Cover- Zodiac Stamp~

Found a lot great items in my mailbox today!!

Thanks to Johan I received a beautiful cover! With a stamp of the "Signs of the Zodiac", new Belgian stamps with great first day cancellations, issued on 17-01-2011! They are with extra adhesive round stickers to put in the middle of the stamp to personalize them...
And the stamp on the postcard is from a set of three famous Belgian "Writers homes" with Erasmus huis, Het lijsternet (Stijn Streuvels) and La Maison Blance also with speciale first day cancellation!
Toch nog ontvangen... Beter laat dan nooit :D:D... Heel Erg Bedankt voor deze speciale uitgiften Johan!!!

The history of the museum at the Erasmus House is closely tied in with that of the Chapter of Anderlecht (16th century). Desiderius Erasmus of Rotterdam stayed at this very house in 1521. The house was converted into a museum in 1932. Today, the collections (furniture, works of art, engravings, books and archives) form a unique collection illustrating assorted stages in European history : the Renaissance, the reign of Charles Quint, the Humanist movement, the flowering of printing and burgeoning religious conflict. A reading room containing one of the world's largest collections of 16th century volumes can be visited by arrangement.
