What's Available ?

  • Consult our On-line Search database - covering Books, Periodicals & Exhibition Material (plus Stamp Lover Index and Article Index) to see what is available. But please remember our database is constantly being updated, so for the moment even if a particular title doesn't appear, we may still be able to assist - please e-mail us to check.

  • Those who do not have access to the Internet and wish to "browse the shelves at home" should ask for a listing of their specific country or theme to be sent to their home free by post.

  • Databases of holdings or not, we appreciate that you may still want guidance or information on a specific topic or book and indeed whether a particular item is available for consultation or borrowing at that particular time.
