Information for the following item: TB22733
   List of Post-Offices in the United States, With The Names of the Post-Masters of the Counties and States, to Which They Belong.... Author: Post-Master General,. Published by US Government, printed by Way & Gideon Washington, DC 1828. First Edition Good in 1/4 cloth with heavy, blue-gray, plain paper covers with a sewn binding. The covers are worn and rubbed with mild chipping at the edges. There is a book plate from the Library of the American Institute attached the verso of the front cover, two early prior owner names on the title page as well as a red stamp of the American Institute Library. Without a dust jacket, and we doubt that it ever had one. An octavo measuring 8 1/2" tall by 5 3/8" deep containing 151 pages of text. The preliminaries provide a list of distributing offices for the postal service; the rates of postage for a single letter "composed of one piece of paper"; newspaper postage and pamphlet postage; the list of counties, districts or parishes in each state and territory as of 1828. This material is followed by the complete list of post-offices in the United States listed by the name of the office (town or parish), the county and state of that office and the name of the postmaster for that office. The final two columns of data list the distance from Washington and the distance from the state capital for that office. The final table in this volume lists the number of post-offices established from the years 1789 to 1827 "inclusive", amount of postage sold, compensation to post masters, expenses, transportation of the mail, net revenue and "Extent in Miles of Post-roads". For this copy only, tipped in on the final two blank pages are newspaper clippings from 1828 listing the amount of postage accrued in each state and territory. The second clipping is a nearly 14" long article the "documents accompany the Presidents Message from the Post Office Department for 17th November, 1828. Our code number = TB22733
