PRESIDENTS DINNER: Friday 25th FEBRUARY 2022 AT THE GUILDHALL, LONDON

£150.00

In stock

The President’s Dinner will be held at Guildhall in the City of London, a few hundred meters from 15 Abchurch Lane , on Friday 25th February 2022 at 7.00pm.

The Great Hall is sited above the remains of the largest Roman Amphitheatre in Britain and was originally finished in 1440. Since then it has been variously burnt down, bombed out and the roof rebuilt in different structural styles, the current roof dating from the 1950s. However the grandeur of this vast space has not been compromised and it is the home of the Lord Mayor’s Banquet since 1502.

We are therefore privileged to dine there and visitors to London who have not before seen this wonderful medieval structure are especially welcome.

The Inks of De La Rue & Co.

Peter Young FRPSL

£59.00

In stock

Described as “tons of interesting stuff from one of the masters of his subject”, and “authoritative and well researched” by two philatelists who have read it, this 432-page hardback book, the first in-depth study of the inks used by De La Rue for postage stamps, as well as other materials, will be published in March 2021.

The initial identification of bank notes, stamps or postal stationery is primarily by colour. Obviously, their denominations or reasons to exist are also provided, but it is colour that the eyes identify first. That colour is determined by the inks used which, in turn, are determined by their ingredients and recipes.

A Jubilee Reminiscence

John Davies FRPSL

£55.00

In stock

In 1889 a general opinion was expressed that the fiftieth anniversary of the introduction of Uniform Penny Postage in Great Britain “ought not to be allowed to pass without some indication of the feelings, which must actuate all who looked back at the great reform introduced in 1840”. Arrangements were made for various Jubilee celebrations to be held in 1890. Although a plan for a commemorative stamp was initiated, it was later abandoned.
