Product Information

CHALMERS versus HILL

By Anthony Wicks

The saga that rocked the Victorian philatelic world

Even today, some postal historians and authorities believe that James Chalmers from Dundee was the inventor of the adhesive postage stamp. This misinformed fact is almost entirely due to the industry and fanatical devotion of his son, Patrick Chalmers, in the 1880s. This book relates the extraordinary story of that achievement, in one of the most celebrated philatelic debates ever conducted in the United Kingdom.

Published December 2012

Chalmers versus Hill, Size 170 x 240 mm, hardback, ix + 156 pp. + A10.
