Although many letter boxes are ordinary, some types, such as those that survive from the 1850s, are understandably rare. This book describes some of those from the Channel Islands, where pillar boxes were first introduced in 1852, to Scotland, which has had its own design of letter boxes since the Queen's accession in 1952.
