PRESIDENTS DINNER: Friday 25th FEBRUARY 2022 AT THE GUILDHALL, LONDON

£150.00

In stock

The President’s Dinner will be held at Guildhall in the City of London, a few hundred meters from 15 Abchurch Lane , on Friday 25th February 2022 at 7.00pm.

The Great Hall is sited above the remains of the largest Roman Amphitheatre in Britain and was originally finished in 1440. Since then it has been variously burnt down, bombed out and the roof rebuilt in different structural styles, the current roof dating from the 1950s. However the grandeur of this vast space has not been compromised and it is the home of the Lord Mayor’s Banquet since 1502.

We are therefore privileged to dine there and visitors to London who have not before seen this wonderful medieval structure are especially welcome.

The 1840 Embossed Wyon -Whiting Essays Their Genesis and Subsequent Influence on British Postal Stationery (Standard)

Alan Huggins RDP Hon. FRPSL & Anthony Wicks

£45.00

In stock

The stimulus for undertaking the production of this book was a shared enthusiastic interest in, the various aspects of the Postal reforms, which were campaigned and planned for in the 1830's and resulted in very significant changes in the operation of the British Post Office following the introduction of Uniform Penny Postage on the 10th January 1840

The primary objective in preparing this book has been to set the context of the 1840 Wyon-Whiting essays within the aims of the reforms being introduced in 1840 for the pre-payment of postage, and their ultimate destiny to retrieve the unsatisfactory reception given to the Mulready postal stationery in May 1840.

The 1841 embossed envelopes where a world first, and provided a design concept which served the British Post Office for over 130 years, and was also adapted by many other countries.

The Inks of De La Rue & Co.

Peter Young FRPSL

£59.00

In stock

Described as “tons of interesting stuff from one of the masters of his subject”, and “authoritative and well researched” by two philatelists who have read it, this 432-page hardback book, the first in-depth study of the inks used by De La Rue for postage stamps, as well as other materials, will be published in March 2021.

The initial identification of bank notes, stamps or postal stationery is primarily by colour. Obviously, their denominations or reasons to exist are also provided, but it is colour that the eyes identify first. That colour is determined by the inks used which, in turn, are determined by their ingredients and recipes.
