Here are scans of two of the Tudor sheets so you can see the words that phantasmagoia described.

Here is the Henry VII sheet printed by William Caxton

Here is the Henry VIII sheet printed by Wynkyn de Worde

Lovely sheets, Keith. Gerald should be justly proud of those beauties. I hope I might get the opportunity to nab myself a set if one ever turns up on ebay. (I'm assuming that they aren't available directly from the source anymore given that Gerald produced them a number of years ago. Do you happen to know whether that assumption is correct or not?)

I've asked but don't expect a reply until the snooker has finished.

I bought the sheets almost 4 years ago and I think tthere were few, if any, more. I wonder how many were produced. I've only ever seen the singles on eBay.

I've updated this page on askme in order to include the later Henry V!!! "Matrimonial Cause" sheets.  I don't know how many of these are in the wild but I've never seen them on eBay.  They seem to show that there was a knowledge of Wonderland as far back as Tudor times.

Nothing really exotic about the Tudor set;  I came across a very old album devoted to Shakespearean quotes using cutout designs from stamps of the 1920s/3os  The opening page had the stamps stuck in.

So, this begs the question as to the origin of these found stamps and I am now able to answer this having acquired a nice lot of articles from various philatelic publications and newspapers relating to Cinderella stamps. In The American Philatelist for October 1988, four stamps are depicted on the cover. The article inside explains that the book that Gerald refers to is G A Higlett's Shakespeare as a Stamp Collector which consists of various quotes from Shakespeare that could easily seem to refer to postage stamps. It was published in England in 1921 and it was limited to only 136 copies and it did contain the stamps mounted opposite the title page. If Gerald still has it, it must be very rare in itself.

All I can show is the cover of the magazine:
