The home of the Cartophilic Society of Great Britain

Today …

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
last updated 11th March 2021

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


Our Bookshop – 
last updated 12 February 2021

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
last updated 11 April 2021

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.

And if you are researching a book or other media and would like to find out if a certain card is in a certain set, just ask, as we will happily look through our library to try and provide you with the answers.
