Before then, ink and hand-stamps (hence the word 'stamp'), usually made from wood or cork, were often used to frank the mail and confirm the payment of postage. The first adhesive postage stamp, commonly referred to as the Penny Black, was issued in the United Kingdom in 1840. The invention of the stamp was part of an attempt to reform and improve the postal system in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, which, in the early 19th century, was in disarray and rife with corruption.. Before the introduction of postage stamps, mail in the UK was paid for by the recipient, a system that was associated with an irresolvable problem: the costs of delivering mail were not recoverable by the postal service when recipients were unable or unwilling to pay for delivered items, and senders had no incentive to restrict the number, size, or weight of items sent, whether or not they would ultimately be paid for. The postage stamp resolved this issue in a simple and elegant manner, with the additional benefit of room for an element of beauty to be introduced. Concurrently with the first stamps, the UK offered wrappers for mail. Later related inventions include postal stationery such as prepaid-postage envelopes, post cards, lettercards, aerogrammes, postage meters, and, more recently, speciality boxes and envelopes provided free to the customer by the U.S. postal service for priority or express mailing. On The Disk This unique disk is an opportunity to own these rare and collectible vintage books before they disappear forever. Some of the books are already unavailable and but for being scanned into digital format would never be seen again. Each page has been scanned in as a faithful reproduction of the original. This is a chance to be able to see books that would otherwise be lost to future generations. The disk contains the most complete library of books relating to postage stamps, philately and their history and development. It is an invaluable resource of knowledge,techniques and history that may otherwise be forgotten were it not for being preserved in this way. Be Aware - that other sellers may pad out their collection of books with irrelevant foreign language titles or books that are simply not at all relevant to the topic. Compare items and you will see the quality and effort that goes into our disks. Other sellers also put security lock on the books which requires a password (which they won't give you) so it is restricted as to what you can do with the books - all our books are completely unrestricted. In addition all our books are fully named exactly as you see in the list below making them easy to find and easily searchable - other sellers may simply supply you a disk with books named randomly making it virtually impossible to find the book you want.

The PDF will be a replica of the book in exactly the condition it was available to us - so that will necessarily mean that the book will have inevitable signs of ageing. Some of the books in our collection are over 400 years old - it is not possible to maintain a book in pristine condition for that length of time. In addition any marks made by the previous owners will also be present. We do not consider that to be a flaw of the product but rather adds to its authenticity. Searchable - Each file is fully named on the disk so it is easy to search and find a particular title. In addition each book is searchable and individual sections or pages can easily be printed. Viewing - The books will require suitable PDF software to view them, almost certainly you will already have this on your computer or device - if not such software is universally available for Free download. Sizing - Page size can be adjusted to suit your needs for viewing text or images. Printing - A complete books is printable, or individual sections or just individual pages too. Images - All images can be printed out and used as you wish. About the Disk The disk is not suitable for use on a home DVD player connected tour TV or audio device. The disk contains PDF files (these are electronic books) which can be viewed on your computer. You can easily convert the PDF files to a similar format suitable for viewing on your Tablet, mobile phone, Kindle, eBook reader or other device using the totally free software called Calibre Please Note - Physical books are not included in this purchase; all books are scans of the original books in PDF digital format only. You will receive your disk in a protective sleeve - there is no box included. The cost of a box plus associated increase in postage and packaging would mean the price of the item would need to at least double and we find that our customers do not value a box but rather they value the contents of our disks . Shipping All items are shipped from the UK. We despatch within one business day of receiving the order, please note that whilst we can despatch purchases quickly we cannot control the delivery time it takes to reach you. For UK deliveries the standard service is second class post shipped in a secure cardboard CD mailer. For non-UK deliveries; the standard posting method is Airmail. Please be aware that Airmail delivery times can vary greatly even within the same country, there is not a standard time and please do not expect your item to arrive within a few days - it simply will not happen. The "Anticipated Delivery" date is given by eBay , not us, and quite frankly should be totally ignored because it is not a true reflection of the reality. There is an option to have tracked international shipping (it is an option in the postage section of the listing) - tracked delivery is far more secure, it can often be quicker but is relatively expensive; we charge just for the cost of the service plus our additional time in organising it; it is entirely optional whether you make use of that service or not. Satisfaction Guarantee We feel certain you will be delighted with your purchase. If however for any reason you have cause for concern then please contact us. We are always happy to resolve any issue to your satisfaction and offer a full no-quibble money-back guarantee. We purchase many different items ourselves on eBay and understand the need for quality customer service. Please note - before contacting us with a query that the disk is intended to be use on a computer only (with suitable PDF reader software) - it will not work on a home DVD player connected to your TV. The disk does not contain audio or video files; it is a data disk with PDFs on it DELIVERY time-scale - Note to All Non-UK Buyers In 99.9% of cases we will post your international purchase to you within one Business day but after that we have absolutely no control over the speed, efficiency or effectiveness of the particular delivery service that you have selected. So please be aware of the following: 1. Anticipated delivery is set by eBay (not us) and should be ignored. 2. There is no set time for when your Airmail item will arrive. It may be 2 weeks, it may be 4 weeks (yes items can often take that long to be delivered); but almost certainly it will not be 5 days. 3. Standard Airmail delivery WILL NOT INCLUDE TRACKING – that service is available for an extra charge. Tracking will make the delivery more secure but does not necessarily speed up the delivery time (we charge extra for tracking simply because that is what Royal Mail charge us). Please form your expectations on the basis of the points raised above – the same points apply for all sellers though they may not openly say it; but we prefer to create a realistic expectation and as a result have a harmonious relationship rather than tell you it will arrive in 4 days and then have to deal with the fallout from that when it doesn’t happen. For any queries please feel free to send us a message using the eBay message system.
