Taken from the preface : "In the year 1887 the Philatelic Society of London published their work on "The Postage Stamps, Envelopes, & Post Cardsof Australia & the British Colonies of Oceania." Prior to the publication of that work, the present writer was seeking for trustworthy information with reference to the Postage Stamps in New South Wales, a subject of deepest interest to Philatelists....The earlier history of the Posts Office is taken from an old manuscript volume, dating from 1828 - 1857, in that Department, in which the Postmaster-General entered up from time to time, the leading events as they happened.....The later history is, necessarily, very voluminous, & I have therefore only given the salient points, which will serve as landmarks for anyone wishing to obtain further information."
