Postal Markings of Scotland to 1840

Publisher: The Scottish Postal History Society, 1995

Second edition, large (A4) paperback, card covers, xii + 198 pages, in Fine condition.

A first-rate handbook, similar in style to the Willcocks & Jay British County Catalogues, listing details of all the types of postal markings in use in Scotland before the introduction of adhesive postage stamps in 1840. Very well illustrated with illustrations of the standard types and of the Edinburgh and Glasgow types, and special types; and with maps showing locations of post towns, receiving houses, postal routes, etc. With a price-guide for each mark listed.
Substantially larger than the first edition, this is the definitive handbook on the subject.
