The Shanghai Postal System: Stamps and Postal History
of the Other Treaty Ports

The Shanghai Local Post was founded on July 13, 1863 and its postal agencies were set up in various Treaty Ports. The Local Posts were established in the Treaty Ports of Amoy, Foochow, Chefoo, Chinkiang, Chungking, Ichang, Hankow, Kewkiang, Nanking, Wuhu, etc. and issued stamps between January 1893 and September 1896. After establishment of the Imperial Chinese Post on February 2, 1897, the postal services of all the Treaty Ports were consequently merged with the Imperial Chinese Post.

This book “The Shanghai Postal System: Stamps and Postal History of the Other Treaty Ports” covers the ten Local Posts of the treaty ports, as well as the Hainan Land Post and the Wei Hai Wei Courier Post. The essay designs, trial proofs, issued stamps, variety stamps, and the postal history with earliest and latest recorded dates, rare combination covers with Foreign Posts and Imperial Chinese Post are shown on 860 exhibit pages. This book, written in Chinese and English by Fortune Wang of Kaohsiung, Taiwan, is the ultimate reference book for all discerning collectors of the Shanghai Local Postal System.

The deluxe edition, printed in full color, comprises 1,180 pages in three volumes with a slipcase, for sale to members for $90 (non-members $112.50), plus $14.95 postage for Media Mail within the U.S.
Postage for Canadian is $59.95 and international is $79.95.
