The Posta Europea and 1984 Kehr Catalogue of Interpostals

Publisher: Philip Cockrill, Newbury, 1984.
Paperback, illustrated, 60 pages, slight foxing to the covers, pages clean, in Good condition.
The story of "Posta Europa", a private mail service by courier, is almost certainly unique in the annals of philately - a private mail company that became so efficient that the government of the country in which it operated eventually gave the Company the contract to run the major part of its postal service. The Company's circular adhesives, known as Interpostals, were catalogued by Ernest Kehr many years ago. This is a fully revised edition of Kehr's original work, with additional material by Philip Cockrill. Very well illustrated with drawings of the different types.
