Forty years after James Mackay wrote the first comprehensive book about the UK Parcel Post, this is the first of two volumes that brings the story up to date. This has been compiled by our member Dr Max Melrose together with Nick Wraith. There is a comprehensive 52-page section covering the Channel Islands including Guernsey, Jersey, Alderney and some of the islands’ Sub-Post Offices. Volume 1 is a 335-page paperback, published by the Scottish Postal History Society and costs £28 plus £4 postage for the UK.
