The Philatelical Library free pdf Excerpt from The Philatelical Library: A Catalogue of Stamp Publications It seems such a simple every-day matter to attach a small bit of adhesive printed paper to a letter, to drop it into a box, to have it delivered with despatch at its address many miles away, that few persons ever inquire into the processes by which this is accomplished. That small bit of paper is, however, at once the monument of a great reform in the administration and policy of one branch of government, and at the same time one of the most potent agents of its success. For the Post Office is no modern institution- it has both an ancient and a modern history. From being, under the old system, a luxury cumbersome, expensive, and almost worthless, under the new it has become an every-day comfort and necessity, active, economic, and full of civilizing force. Modern research has discovered suggestions of cheap postage and the postage stamp, even traces of their employment by individual enterprise, long prior to the adoption of the system by the English government- yet they have always gone hand in hand. The true history of the new era, beginning with the appearance of Rowland Hill's pamphlet in 1837, follows the subsequent discussion of the subject of Cheap Postage and Postal Reform by the press and public of England, to the final inauguration of the new system in January, 1840, and its rapid spread since then over the civilized world. This history has, however, received little attention, and must be gathered mostly from scattered minutes in governmental records and occasional articles in the periodic press.
