Library

The Society's library encompassed an extremely wide range of French philately. Unfortunately, following the death of our Librarian George Barker and no longer having somewhere to store the books in a way that will make them accessible to members, it has been decided to dispose of the whole collection. This year most of the volumes will be offered to members for sale at a reasonable price in auctions.

The last Library List published (2004) is available from this link for reference.
