Mali used in 1975 one stamp of 220F for Jules Verne book “The Floating City” which shows us a four funnel passenger ship, the ship has not much to do with the novel, and she is not identified.

At the time of its publication, the novel enjoyed a similar level of popularity as Around the World in Eighty Days. The first UK and US editions of the novel appeared in 1874. Jules Férat provided the original illustrations for the novel.

Plot
It tells of a woman who, on board the ship GREAT EASTERN viewtopic.php?f=2&t=8732 with her abusive husband, finds that the man she loves is also on board.
