Book Description View Productions, Sydney, 1983. Hardcover (in Slipcase). Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. Facsimile Edition. Taken from the preface : "In the year 1887 the Philatelic Society of London published their work on "The Postage Stamps, Envelopes, & Post Cardsof Australia & the British Colonies of Oceania." Prior to the publication of that work, the present writer was seeking for trustworthy information with reference to the Postage Stamps in New South Wales, a subject of deepest interest to Philatelists.The earlier history of the Posts Office is taken from an old manuscript volume, dating from 1828 - 1857, in that Department, in which the Postmaster-General entered up from time to time, the leading events as they happened.The later history is, necessarily, very voluminous, & I have therefore only given the salient points, which will serve as landmarks for anyone wishing to obtain further information." Size: 240mm - 310mm. 110 pages. Slip case has some rubbing & bumping. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: History; Australia; 19th century; Main Picture: Slip case.
