This book is dedicated to the huffing and puffing mailmen of all times and places, from the Marathon messenger whose efforts caused him to collapse to the Pony Express chased by Sioux arrows.
With its many illustrations, this volume tells and shows the splendours of the Message, outlining its history from the Ancient Egyptians to the telecommunications era. A separate chapter is about stamps, while an anthology of literary writings on the joys and sorrows of epistles, the telegraph and the telephone completes the volume.
