Ever since our society was founded, one of our main aims was to record, research, and classify every single tobacco and trade card issued between the end of the nineteenth century and the present day. And all of our members have worked together to make this happen.

Our records started out as typed lists, then were printed in our magazine, finally being converted into book form for ease of access; these books were also a way that new members could join in and start adding their own new discoveries without needing to acquire all the former magazines.

You may ask why buy a book rather than borrowing it from our library? Or any library? Or try to find the information online? The basic answer is that with your own book the facts are always immediately at hand any time, whether you are temporarily unable to reach a library, or suffer computer breakdowns, or manage to corrupt the disc you have so carefully stored all your research notes on. 

Do note that if you are a Cartophilic Society Member you will be able to buy our books at a special discounted price. 

By the way, if you have any questions about what is contained in any book please just get in touch. We are always happy to advise accordingly and we will make sure you get the book that will suit you best.

Our bookshop catalogue appears below. And we are always adding to this list, so if you collect a subject that has not been covered please just let us know. We will be happy to discuss your idea as a council and see if it’s something we would be interested in helping you produce, or producing ourselves.

* This amended research to the Trade Index has been taking place since publication in early 2006, and includes all known additions, amendments, deletions, and corrections. It has become clear, however, that the issue regarding ‘Advertisement Cards’ needs further amendment. I stated, under ‘What is included…’ in the original Introduction ‘One-off advertising cards are generally recorded….’. But, over this period, I have been notified of a myriad of other cards which are not advertising products, including single events, theatre events, greetings, bazaars etc. The Society has discussed this issue, and agreed with the proposal I suggested that, as from now, such cards will no longer be included.
