Well here we are, steaming steadily towards our Century, for The Cartophilic Society was founded in 1938. And whilst we are starting to look forward to that happy event, we must also take some time out to remember, and to celebrate, all of those collectors, writers, researchers, and dealers who we met along the way, and who helped to make “today” possible.
