About this product
- DescriptionPillar boxes were first introduced into Britain at the instigation of Anthony Trollope, the velist, who was also a Post Office surveyor. Although many letter boxes are ordinary, some types, such as those that survive from the 1850s, are understandably rare. This book describes and illustrates some of those from the Channel Islands, where pillar boxes were first introduced in 1852, to Scotland, which has had its own design of letter boxes since the Queen's accession in 1952, and from the heart of London to the depths of rural Wales and the Irish Republic.
- Author BiographyMartin Robinson has been collecting stamps and writing about them and other aspects of postal history since 1965. He has travelled extensively recording and photographing letter boxes of all kinds, and corresponds with fellow enthusiasts.
