There is growing interest in the history of philately and in the extensive literature and philatelic ephemera, writes Chris King, as he provides an in-depth presentation of this fascinating philatelic subject.
There is growing interest in the history of philately and in the extensive literature and philatelic ephemera, which has been created by exhibitors, and their organisers since the earliest displays in the industrial exhibitions of the mid-nineteenth century, which included displays of printing, including postage stamps.
We don’t just collect stamps… or envelopes…
The Society seeks to preserve exhibition material from all levels of exhibiting, international, national, regional, and local, from the first exhibitions to the present day, as the display reveals.
