Dr Robert Saunders, Lecturer in Modern British History at Queen Mary University of London, examines the work of the eight Prime Ministers featured on the stamps, from Napoleonic times to 1990.
A brief section traces the history of 10 Downing Street, the official residence of the First Lord of the Treasury and these days of the Prime Minister. It also contains a list of all holders of the office from 1721 to the present. The pack, elegantly designed by Jason Godfrey, also includes carefully chosen photographs, paintings and contemporary cartoons.
