EARLY POSTAL HISTORY ITALY (FRANCE SPAIN) 1200s to 1700s ******************** POSTAL HISTORY ITALY (FRANCE SPAIN) 1200s to 1700s The Post and Courier Service of Early Modern Italy: Documentation Revealed by Giorgio Migliavacca, in English New Millennium Limited Edition Reprint of 50 copies (most already sold to subscribers) 52 pages large size (8 inches x 11 inches). The lay-out of the original work has been changed and improved where possible, and this reprint is printed on high quality, white paper. New and important illustrations and maps have been added with lengthy and detailed information, some of it never published before in English. This important research won the 1980 Gold Medal for the Best Long Essay published by the Postal History Journal. Of particular merit is the new CHRONOLOGY OF ITALIAN POSTAL HISTORY FROM 200 BC to 1850 AD. This very useful chronology discusses the most significant postal developments spanning 2,000 years. In compiling this specific section, the author has revised, updated, incorporated and expanded research published in recent years by himself and leading Italian scholars. This chronology thus corrects a fair amount of incomplete or partly inaccurate information published in the past by reputed scholars. For those interested in French or Spanish Postal History this book is also very valuable because it discusses the postal communications of the three countries from Medioeval days to late Renaissance and beyond. This book is easy to ready and would fascinate even readers not interested in postal history per se. The bibliography is very extensive. There is quite a lot of new information added as compared to the 1980 work and if you collect Italian Postal History this is a fundamental work to have. ********************************* STORIA POSTALE ITALIANA DAL MEDIOEVO AL RINASCIMENTO, inoltre una nuova cronologia delle Poste in Italia dal 200 AC al 1850.
