Indian Postal History 1873 – 1923 by Brig. D. S. Virk
The author, well know for his army post office and military mail books, gives us something different here. Using old postal manuals, circulars, guides, and lists, he fleshes out information about the post office organisation and functions, postal facilities and rates, post marks including their illustrations, stamps and seals and postal receipts, acknowledgements and labels. Importantly he covers the post-classical period which is not covered much by any other book. Hence this is a highly recommended book for any Indian philatelist’s library.
