British Post Offices Notices

Michel Raguin transcribed and published several volumes of British Post Office notices in the 1990s.

He has given permission for these to be reproduced digitally for the benefit of anyone researching the history of the British Post Office.

The British Post Office Notices comprise the directives concerning the running of the Royal Mails. These were issued by the Postmaster Generals through their Secretaries, the Post Office Surveyors, and by local Postmasters. The Notices served two audiences, postal employees and the general public. Unfortunately I have discovered very few original documents or reprints of Notices directed to the first category before 1800. However, since after 1800 a steady stream of Notices appear, I assume that the ephemeral nature of the notices (serving a limited and time-bound usage and regularly superseded), did not encourage their preservation. The Notices simply have not survived the vicissitudes of time. It is my fervent hope that the publication of this series of volumes on this subject will encourage antiquarians, archivists, and collectors to survey early records with a renewed interest in these early Notices.

Volume 1 1660 to 1799 have so far been digiotised and made available on this website and that of the Great Britain Philatelic Society 

The complete volume can be viewed in flipbook and pdf format, each has advantages and disadvantages
