    Recent Additions to the Libraryclick here for a listing of both new and older publications that have been added to the National Philatelic Society Library in recent months

    Philatelic Books – Taken from reviews that have appeared in the Society’s magazine, Stamp Lover, this section seeks to give an idea of the wide range of subjects covered by philately and philatelic literature, as represented by some of the additions to National PS Library of late.

The books listed here are only a small proportion of the philatelic books contained in the National PS Library - to search and browse the listings of over 5,000 philatelic books, plus a wide range of philatelic journals from around the world, click here to visit the National PS Library Books and Periodicals Search Page.

If you would like to donate any philatelic titles our Librarian will be very pleased to hear from  email
