This small Dutch language cinderella advertises the Froede Stamp Catalog , "available everywhere."

Partial Belgian cancel and prices in francs (f.) appear to indicate that this is a Flemish-Dutch label.

Here is the 180 aur value (Facit #602) from Iceland's May 4, 1981 set of two EUROPA stamps on the theme of folklore. The stamp depicts Loftur the Sorcerer on his quest for the Raudskinna.

From wikipedia, "Loftur Borsteinsson (1702 - ca. 1722) was an 18th century Icelander. He is known in Icelandic folklore as 'Galdra-loftur', a master of sorcery...According to the legend, (he) tried to obtain Raudskinna, the legendary book of spells which had been buried with the author Bishop Gottskalk grimmi Nikulasson of Hola. However he failed in that effort. Some time after he was, according to legend, dragged down from his fishing boat under the water and disappeared."
