The Post Offices of the World (Except Germany) 1888


This massive book of 826 pages contains listing of all post offices in the world except Germany. By this time there were hundreds and thousands of post offices in most major countries including India. This work will benefit, for example, Indian postal history collectors who wish to know where a particular post office was located. For instance, the first page (third column) itself shows two obscure POs – ‘Abazai’ being in Peshawar province and ‘Abbigeri’ in Dharwar province. It will also be of use to collectors of foreign mails. Published in 1995 by Proud Bailey & Co. (publishers of the famous Postal History and Army Postal History series of books by Edward B. Proud), it was then priced at £60. It is hardbound and very heavy. In almost new like condition. Free shipping within India.
