NEW! North American Reference Book (RB151) Now available…

The new North American Reference Book is here. Two years in the making!

The first part (RB151) contains all C19th tobacco insert series, excluding photographic issues, pins and silks. It does include special printed albums and banners. There are in total 357 pages, with 250 colour illustrations and about 2600 cards shown in total. There is an introduction, followed by an Index based on the World Index references and followed by a handbook section that is in American Card Catalog sequence (N, A and G numbers). The book contains all updates by Chris Benjamin and Forbes/Mitchell as well as quite a few completely new series. Almost every series is illustrated (every backlisted set is in large size so that it can be read), and every unnumbered series is listed in full, with illustrations of nearly every untitled card. Over 90% of the cards listed have been compared with the actual cards and updated where necessary. There are of course additions to many of the incomplete lists and illustrations of subjects.

The book is available to members of the Society at £35.00 post paid, and to non-members at £45.00. Orders to overseas collectors (incl. USA) will incur an additional charge of £5 per copy for postage (i.e. £40 for members and £50 to non-members). Contact Roger Parckar at or by post at:

Ashburton Industrial Estate

North American non-members should note that we have appointed as sole agent Non Sports Update (Roxanne Toser) and orders should be obtained directly through them. Their contact details are or by mail Roxanne Toser, 4019 Green Street, P.O. Box 5858, Harrisburg, PA 17110, U. S. A.

You will wonder how you have managed without it thus far!
