On 26th September 1936, at the suggestion of Fred Melville, a group of eminent philatelists met at the offices of Robson Lowe. By a unanimous decision The Postal History Society was formed and a small committee appointed to draw up the rules. The objects of the Society were, and remain, the promotion and encouragement of the study of postal communications, local, national and international, to publish a journal for members and other works relating to postal history. The society can be found here:
A detailed reference book on 300 years of the Scottish Posts as a Historical Survey from 1536 to 1836. All research was done in the Scottish Record Office and the National Library of Scotland in Edinburgh. The author goes into great detail with methodical precision to ensure the reader is presented with all the available information on this subject. Most of which had not been previously published before this work.
