Le texte décrit un musée de philatélie.

Explanation:
"Collecting Stamps: Covers

COVERS, PHILATELICALLY, ARE finely described as stamped envelopes or envelopes with stamps. They play an important part in philately-more so probably than most people imagine. They are usually the first means of introducing the wonders of stamp collecting to the uninitiate; they denote true postal use of stamps, and they give data on postal rates and routes."

"Only Known Edwardian Essays, 1901

Essays are artworks produced by stamp designers. When the Queen passed away, United Kingdom was faced with the challenge of producing new stamp designs after using Queen Victoria's head for 60 years. These photographic essays were produced but were not adopted. They are the only known copies.."

"Épreuves et essais en philatélie

Parmi les objets de choix de la philatélie, figurent, à la suite des timbres-types et de leurs variétés, leurs épreuves et leurs essais. Certes, nombre de philatélistes ne s’attachent pas à la collection de ces catégories de pièces, bien qu’elles soient plus rares que les timbres-types. Leurs raisons résident essentiellement dans le coût relativement élevé des épreuves et essais, et dans le champ déjà étendu de la collection des timbres normaux qui limite leur possibilité de l’approfondir."
