Hi all!
I've recently been delving into my collection of Belgium and for the life of me, I cannot seem to track down a resource on postal rates for domestic mail in Belgium! I don't have any specific covers at this time that I need help with, I'm mostly identifying cancels on individual stamps, but I am immensely curious as to the rates throughout this 100 year period. I have found the following books by searching the APRL catalog, but they seem to be international airmail rates only:

"La poste aérienne belge, Volume 1: Les tarifs postaux internationaux et les surtaxes aériennes par pays de destination 1919-2003"
"La poste aérienne belge, Volume 2a: 1870-1950, les ordres et les notes de service en rapport avec la poste aérienne (et des informations sur un nombre de premiers vols, publiées par la SABENA)"
"La poste aérienne belge, Volume 2b: 1951-2003, les ordres de service et les notes de service en rapport avec la poste aérienne (et des informations sur un nombre de premiers vols, publiées par la SABENA)"
all three by Walter Major, pub. 2001 in French in Ostende.

I did however seem to find a book that is not in any library system I currently have access to, and I wonder if anyone on this web forum may have access to this title:

"Tarifs Postaux Intérieures 1849-1987" by E & M Deneumostier, pub. 1987

The two Deneumostiers seem to have authored a load of books on Belgian Philately, and very few appear in the library systems I have access to. I fear this may be a rare book now, and I will have to continue my search for rates along some other lines.

Thank you for any help!

Postal rates from 1870 can be found here

Besides the French language book you mention there is an equally scarce Flemish/Dutch equivalent De Posttarieven van België sinds 1879 by F. Somers and F. Peeters (2008)
