The Swiss Philatelist

The Swiss Philatelist
For over 30 years, the Amateur Collector published a philatelic periodical for collectors of Swiss stamps. Edited by H L Katcher and later by R F Bulstrode OBE, The Swiss Philatelist was the ‘house organ’ of the stamp trading business “Amateur Collector Ltd.”.
From 1951 to 1986 a total of 91 issues of this publication appeared, packed with information about numerous subjects, such as Aerophilately, Postmarks, Exhibitions, Military Mail, Postage Dues, Proofs & Essays, Railways & TPO’s, and last but not least – Stamps!

A complete set of publications is held in the Society’s Library and can be obtained from the Librarian at:
