"The History of the Post Office in British North America 1639-1870". A seminal work on the beginnings and growth of the Canadian Post Office, written by William Smith in 1920. This particular book was a Canadian Post Office gift to a delegate at the 1922 Dominion Postal Conference in Ottawa and is autographed by Charles Murphy (Secretary of State for External Affairs from 1909 to 1911, Postmaster General 1921-1926 and acting Secretary of State of Canada 1925-1926). Fine condition, hardcover, ex-Bowen Island Library. A fascinating look at early US and Canadian history from a postal perspective, full of useful facts and figures. Estimate
