The Library

The Society maintains an extensive library of books and periodicals which may be borrowed by members, usually for one month at a time. The following library listing is organised by category and country. A Book Loan Form may be downloaded and completed to present to the Librarian.

We also have available a "Signascope" for watermark detection.

The online library list is in PDF format and allows searching by means of the search function built into your PDF reader.

The Society Archivist maintains a meticulous record of the Society's transactions and correspondence from the late 1940's to the present date. (Some records were lost during WWII).

The Curator of the Society Collection maintains a list of our holdings. Refer to a listing of the collection.
