The History of the British Post Office by J. C. Hemmeon

Originally published in 1912, Hemmeon takes a detailed look at the history of the Post Office in Britain. Its 271 pages contain a wealth of information and anecdote which still proves of much interest today. Contents Include: The Postal Establishment supported directly by the state-Prior to 1635; The Postal Establishment a Source of Revenue to the State-1635-1711; The Postal Establishment an Instrument of Taxation-1711-1840; The Postal Establishment an Instrument of Popular Communication-Since 1840; The Travellers Post and Post Horses; Roads and Speed; Sailing Packets and Foreign Connections; Rates and Finance; The Question of Monopoly; The Telegraph System as a Branch of the Postal Department; The Post Office and the Telephone Companies; Conclusion; Expenditure and Revenue Tables; Bibliography; Index. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
