POSTAL REFORMS
Lot Catalog No. Descrip Opening
1403   imageVERY EARLY POSTAL REFORM PAMPHLET (25 YEARS BEFORE HILL's) - PLAN TO EXPEDITE SCOTTISH MAILS; Fine [c.Dec.] 1822 36-page pamphlet; "Plan for Expediting the Mail from London to Edinburgh so that it shall arrive at one o’clock on the second day (and eventually earlier), proceed immediately for the North of Scotland, and cross at the Queensferry all the year in day-light" (ex-binding; title-page loose so hinged in place). Only three copies of this pamphlet are recorded in private hands, and there are very few in institutional collections. It was a verbatim reprint of the article that appeared in the November 1822 issue of Blackwood’s Edinburgh Magazine (pp. 673-680). It seems almost certain that this pamphlet was written by the very early Edinburgh Postal Reformer, William Gallaway (1772-1851), who was the 'Scottish Rowland Hill'. The contents - like Hill's pamphlets - quote Government Reports and statistics, especially the 1822 report from the Committee investigating the London to Holyhead route. It notes the new 1d surcharge for the Conway route from Liverpool to Edinburgh, proposes a similar extra ½d rate for the Scottish scheme, and notes the problems making the London to Dublin mails bypass Birmingham. One of the earliest of all Postal Reform pamphlets; it easily fits on an album page. Rare and Important. [See further details of this pamphlet and William Gallaway, see the new RPSL book by James G-T on 'International Postal Reforms', pp.117-125.] Cross Reference : SCOTLAND, WELSH POSTAL HISTORY, WARWICKSHIRE - BIRMINGHAM, IRELAND PRE-1922 - POSTAL HISTORY (Image)

1404   imageRARE OFFICIAL P.O. PRESTAMP POSTAL-RATES CALCULATOR - WITH ALL RATES ENTERED IN MANUSCRIPT; Fine "March 1830" 32-page printed P.O. booklet "A list of Post-Towns and Principal Places: with the Postage of a Single Letter to or from London, according to the actual routes of the Post" published by J.Hartnell for His Majesty's Stationery Office (with "Francis Freeling... March 1830" imprint on last page); ex binding, the title-page and one other hinged in place; the "SCOTCH TOWNS"/"IRISH TOWNS" section now separate from the "ENGLAND AND WALES" section, but otherwise very fine. Signed twice (one dated "21st Sepr. 1832") by "Rhys Williams" a clerk in the London Inland Office from 11 June 1830 to at least 1846. Each town's mileage from London has been added in manuscript but the postages are printed. Ideal exhibition item to show how high and complicated postal rates were before 1840. Rare; especially from a known GPO employee. Only two copies of this booklet are now believed to be in private hands.

1406   imageWILLIAM MULREADY AUTOGRAPH LETTER TO HENRY COLE REF. "YOUR [CRYSTAL] PALACE"; Remarkable and fine 11 April 1850 letter (diminutive size as usual) written and signed on a single side by the designer of the Mulready Postal Stationery, "W. Mulready"; "My dear Sir, Miss Swinburne and Sir John have just arrived in town from Capheaton [Northumberland], but leave for the Isle of Wight on Monday next. Is it possible to let them see the interior of your Palace? Yours faithfully, W. Mulready". It is directed to "Henry Cole Esq." at the foot; Cole (Rowland Hill's assistant during the Postal Reforms of 1839/40) was one of the main promoters of the recently projected Crystal Palace Exhibition Hall in Hyde Park; Sir John Swinburne was a great friend and major patron of Mulready's, and this letter presumably relates to the Royal Society of Arts' architectural model of their proposed design. Rare connection between two famous names of Postal Reforms and connected to the earliest design for the 1851 Crystal Palace.

1407   imageRARE "UNIVERSAL PENNY POSTAGE, 1d PER ½oz SUFFICIENT FOR COLLECTION..." PAMPHLET BY W. HASTINGS; Remarkable Sept. 1866 36-page pamphlet (ex-binding c.13x20cms - easily fits album page - some internal spotting mainly towards the end) advocating international 1d Postage by William Hastings of "Huddersfield" which includes the full text of his 30 December 1866 letter to Gladstone: "The question of reducing the rates of Ocean and Foreign Postage, has long engaged my attention… Letters to our most distant Colonies have, as a rule, no more manipulation in sorting, stamping and delivery than inland. Many to, or from, a post town in England to China or the East Indies, have fewer postmarks than if sent from places only 10 miles apart; unless therefore there is a very enhanced cost of transit, there is nothing to justify higher rates…". Hastings was thus some 40 years ahead of himself; the British Colonial rate of 1d per half ounce letter was introduced on 25 December 1898, and then the 1d rate was extended to Australia in 1905 and to the United States in 1908. Only three examples of this rare pamphlet have been recorded in private hands. [Ex Frank Staff, 1995.] Cross Reference : YORKSHIRE (Image)
