No Longer Available - Chalmers Versus Hill

Stock Code: R2645

Even today, some postal historians and authorities believe that James Chalmers from Dundee was the inventor of the adhesive postage stamp. This misinformed fact is almost entirely due to the industry and fanatical devotion of his son, Patrick Chalmers, in the 1880s. This book relates the extraordinary story of that achievement, in one of the most celebrated philatelic debates ever conducted in the United Kingdom.
