Online Auction Description
While Great Britain had produced the world's first pre-paid postage stamp, the Penny Black, one year prior, not everyone in England had gotten the word: implementation of postage stamps across all British postal services would take years to standardize. In this 1841 lettersheet, complete with unique closing rose wax seal, postage was merely handwritten "prepaid."
The lettersheet captures a written script inquiry to Oxford bookseller Joseph Parker, who lived on Turl Street, Oxford, and was among the first of the Oxford booksellers to sell books distributed by "The Press," the precursor to the Oxford University Press. Parker was also among the first to own shares in the distributor, and his nephew, who inherited his uncle's business when Parker passed in 1850, went on to oversee the Oxford pocket classics; his architectural pursuits earned him a holy medallion from Pope Pius IX.
This is an historic and entertaining piece.
