LETTER RECEIVERS OF LONDON 1652 -1857. A history of their offices and handstamps within the General, Penny and Twopenny Posts
The definitive study of the subject; this monumental work contains approaching 1000 pages.
The core is an alphabetical list of the Receiving Houses, showing their exact locations, accompanied by a map of the period, details of the Receiver, illustrations of the handstamps including examples of letters, and a considerable amount of supplementary information of interest to the local and social historian as well as the serious postal historian.
The workings of the post during the period are explained
in a 50 page introduction and there are also over 100 pages of annexes
providing additional information.
Awards include the Crawford Medal from The Royal Philatelic Society, London in 1998 and won the Rowland Hill Award from the British Philatelic Trust in 1998 and Gold Medal and Vera Trinder Rosebowl special literature prize at Stampshow 2000, London.

information - all you would ever want to know about the Receiving Houses
and their incumbents. The retail price seems high but is actually very
good value for money as this book is highly recommended to any student
of postal history or London's local history." Gibbons Stamp Monthly
