Our Present..

We still follow our original principles, to record, research, and preserve tobacco and trade cards on a scientific basis, but this page details all the projects we are currently working on. Each of the blocks below contains a link to a page all its own, and you reach that by clicking on the blue headings at each start point. So lets start with:

Our Card Gallery

this is the place for collectors to view lots of different cards. Its currently being re-captioned so it makes it easier for the reader to find that set or card in dealer catalogues or at auction.


Our Bookshop – 

also under construction, to make it easier to navigate, and more pictorial, this is where we sell brand new copies of all our card reference works. Do note that Society Members receive a discount on our books; yet another privilege of joining us.


Our Library

this is the home of our vast collection of vintage and modern card reference books, plus magazines, rare papers and typed listings. There is a full catalogue, and details of how the library operates.
