Postal Reform & The Penny Black
By Douglas Muir
This important study draws on unpublished documents and extensive new research, and offers a fresh insight into the period leading to the issue of the Penny Black and the Mulready covers in 1840.
Douglas N Muir - Curator, Philately at the National Postal Museum- describes the long campaign for postal reform and illustrates his account with a wealth of contemporary designs, proofs and other philatelic material, a generous amount of it in colour.
