James Bendon, Limassol (1997)
x + 526pp. 1st ed., very fine in fine D/W. One slightly bumped corner not affecting text block.Going behind the scenes to uncover the details of the debates, the discussions, the wrangles and bickering that went on between the Board of Inland Revenue and the Post Office, the Royal Mint and even Buckingham Palace regarding British stamp issues. Problems of sorting mail by gaslight and scares of poisoning from the gum or ink of postage stamps.
