The Club has Publications, Reference Books and CDs and copies of past Newsletters available for sale.
Thanks to the enterprise and hard-work of our Vice-Chairman John and the generous free supply of original documents from Willem Banninga, the Club is able to offer members the opportunity to purchase copies of antique commercial catalogues on CD. See our Early Catalogues page for more information.
The following publications have been produced by the Club. If you want a title, which is currently out of print, please email us at
