Library Index

The society owns an extensive and superb library resource comprising about 300 books. These include stamp catalogues, catalogues and lists of postal stationery, post offices, also most of the key reference books that are essential for research into Swiss stamps and postal history. We also hold significant runs of many journals published by Swiss philatelic and specialist societies in the UK and Switzerland, also USA, Germany and Holland. You can search the index from this page or download it here.

The index is extensive but is easily searchable and the relevant items can be printed, put into a spreadsheet (Excel ) and also saved in a PDF format if required. The Copy button does just that – it copies your selection and allows you to then “paste” the information into a document or email for example. Use the search box to narrow down your list of items – just type in the the words you want to find. Remember that short words may also make up longer words if you are not getting back what you expect!

The boxes with the little arrows are selection boxes , click on them and you see the options available for that heading , for example “Subject” shows “Airmail”, “Customs” and so on . You can select on Subject, Title , Author and date Published.  To remove the selection – click on the selection that appears below the option.
