Scottish Postal History Society Library List and Guidance


Books and other materials are available on loan, to paid-up members, for one month in the first instance. If not required by another member the loan period can be extended by contacting the librarian.

The Society bears the cost of outgoing postage. The method will be decided by the Librarian, lst class, signed for or special delivery. Return must be by the same method and packing secure. Certificates of posting must be obtained.

Items too large, or too valuable to post, can be reserved and handed over at the first suitable opportunity.

Photocopies of small items, up to 10 pages, can be provided and the society bears the cost. These are sent out postage paid by the Librarian.

This list is not yet complete. If you don't find what you want, please ask.

The following listing is divided into BOOKS and JOURNALS. Please provide AUTHOR and TITLE to the librarian when requesting a book, or JOURNAL TITLE and ISSUE or YEAR when requesting a Journal loan.
