Over the past several decades, the USPS has published a short booklet describing the history of the Post Office in the United States. The USPS identification numbers is Publication 100.

I recently discovered that a new edition of this book has been prepared and is on-line and available for download. This edition is greatly expanded and has a number of color images not found in previous editions. It's a god read, and has many references for further research into the postal system. It can be found here:

Thanks for that link. That's an impressive book. I just read it through from cover to cover. It's interesting, colorful, and well presented. It's well written, and I love the pictures.
