Royal Mail : The Post Office Since 1840, Hardback Book


The history of the post office involves many of the most significant themes in the social, economic and political history of Britain.

Daunton traces the development of the post office as an institution and as a business in the 19th and 20th centuries and places the debates surrounding its history, performances and failings in a longer historical perspective and in the broader context of British national history.
