Books on philately for sale. I mostly stock out of print titles but act as agent for the British West Indies Study Circle and the British Caribbean Study Group.
Post and packing is extra. Please note that for bulky (2kg +) overseas orders I can offer very cheap airmail postage as I have a contract with Royal Mail which makes the cost little more than for inland orders.

|CAMPBELL-SMITH Duncan Masters of the Post. - The Authorized history of the Royal Mail.|
Allen Lane (2011)
xxx + 849pp + plates. 1st ed., new in D/W.
Presenting the first complete history of the Royal Mail up to the present day, including the first detailed account of the past half-century of Britain's postal history, from the post war era to the Postal Act of 2011, made possible by comprehensive research at The British Postal Museum & Archive. Details of how postal engineers built the first programmable computer for the wartime code-breakers of Bletchley Park and how the Royal Mail managed to continue delivering post to the front lines during two world wars, also how an opportunity to prevent the Great Train Robbery of 1963 was missed. The author brings to life many of the dominant personalities in the Royal Mail's history - from Rowland Hill, who imposed a uniform penny post and set the great Victorian expansion on its way, to Tony Benn who championed the modernisation of the service in the 1960s and Tom Jackson who led the postal workers' biggest union through fifteen frequently stormy years up to 1982. Events since the failed privatization of 1994 are narrated in colourful detail.
