9780116414182: Creating a Good Impression: Three Hundred Years of the Stamp Office and Stamp Duties

The Stamp Office and stamp duties were both established under the first British Stamp Act of 1694, since when they have been a fruitful source of Government revenue. This book is a record for the general reader of the 300-year history of The Stamp Office, not only of its position in the country's taxation system, but also of its impact on social history and, in the case of stamps that caused the initial riots leading to the American War of Independence, on world history. Legislation, people, machinery and stamps are essential features of The Stamp Office, so these subjects figure prominently in the 15 chapters of the book, which ends with a description of the Office in its Tercentenary year.
