Description: "In this carefully planned reference book, interesting and accurate information is given about the Postal Service, its history and its development to meet present day needs."

Nostalgic full-page colour illustrations on every other page. Front endpaper explains how to address an envelope correctly, whilst the rep and rear pastedown feature a number of people and objects related to the postal service in b&w.

Pictorial matt boards. Spine is missing; corners are bumped. Light marking on rear board. Unusually, the price has been revised from 15p to 18p and there are two (rather than the usual one) black cancellation blocks either side – one of which undoubtedly conceals the original price of 15p. Internally, the book is in very good condition: the pages are clean, bright, and tightly bound.

Measures 17.5 cm × 11.5 cm (7″ × 4.6″). 12mo. 51 pp.

Price: £4.95
