[Preface by The Honourable André Ouellet]. (Fredericton, New Brunswick and Hull) : Goose Lane Editions, Canadian Museum of Civilization - Canadian Postal Museum, (2000). First Printing. Pp. (6),vii-xi,(1),13-150,(2). Illustrated in colour. Folio, black paper-covered boards with gilt lettering to front and spine.

"Sending and receiving mail lies at the heart of our lives and the history of our vast country. Dymbolized by the letter carrier, the letter, or the stamp, the post is part of our daily life. The postal system has taken part in Canada's great historical moments: in the fur trade, in the construction of the railway, on the abttlefield. It has evolved with the rhythm of explorers' journeys and the transformation of the land into the Canada we know today. The post office stands, literally and figuratively, right in the centre of our villages and cities, and it remains at the centre of our modern communications network.

To celebrate Canada's postal heritage, 'Special Delivery' showcases the jewels in the collection of the Canadian Postal Museum and tells the stories of our rarest and most beautiful stamps. Archival photos bring to life horse-drawn wagons and sleighs, early aircraft and snowmobiles, and remote post offices. Modern photos show the jets and trucks that move today's huge volume of mail.

Throughout the history of Canada's postal system, some things never change. It's the people - the clerks, the sorters, the drivers, the letter carriers, the postmasters - who make the mail go through. The responsibility of delvering the mail and the excitement of receiving it are the same today as they were in the days of sail." - from the dustjacket.
