Postal Sanctions Against Rhodesia 1965 to 1980
A collector’s guide with illustrations – by Mike Hughes
This study details the postal sanctions imposed by the British Government on Rhodesia’s postal services following the Declaration of Independence on 11th November 1965.
The 165 pages includes over 200 colour illustrations of an exceptional range of covers that have been subjected to postal sanctions by Britain or by other countries that imposed postal sanctions on Rhodesian mail themselves. Many illustrations are very rare and will be of interest to collectors.
Numerous topics are covered in the background notes including: –
- what mail was subjected to postal sanctions
- how surcharges were calculated in Britain for ordinary mail sent by surface and air, registered mail, mail underpaid and official mail
- how the British Post Office dealt with mail that was undelivered, needed to be forwarded or where the addessee refused to pay the surcharge
- which other countries surcharged Rhodesian mail and which countries suspended postal services with Rhodesia altogether

Sun, Steel & Spray – A History of the Victoria Falls Bridge
Sun, Steel & Spray – A History of the Victoria Falls Bridge is a comprehensive history of the Victoria Falls Bridge. Built in 1904-5 as part of the extension of the envisaged Cape-to-Cairo railway north into central Africa, the spanning of the Zambezi River pushed engineering knowledge and construction techniques of the time to new heights, literally, for at the time the Victoria Falls Bridge was the highest of its kind over water.
With close to 100 period photographs and over 150 pages, Sun, Steel and Spray is full of interesting facts, entertaining stories and information detailing the rich history of this iconic structure, from conception and construction to its ongoing management and maintenance.
This revised second edition builds on information published in the first edition and is presented in a new revised layout, with expanded text and many additional stories, details and images.
