This part of our site is primarily for the benefit of members  and may one day become a password-protected area. We considered making the Directory of Members available online, so that it would be up to date, but many members do not have access to the internet.
A Members Handbook dated January 2016 was sent to members with our Autumn 2015 journal.

THE JOHN SIMPSON COLLECTION
A former member who died tragically in 2004, John Simpson was an assiduous collector not only of books on fishing but also of John Simpson produced his own bookplates. The Society has possibly a few copies available at £6 each post free (UK) early bookplates, especially typographic labels, Early Armorials and Jacobean style bookplates. Results of the auction at Bonhams, New Bond Street on 17 May 2005 are at www.bonhams.com and were included in the Society's June newsletter. Some 23,000 bookplates sold for £63,000. An offprint of the catalogue was circulated to members, and further copies are available for purchase by non-members Click here. John Simpson produced these two bookplates for himself, and they are discussed in our Autumn 2012 journal. The Society has possibly a few prints still available, at £6 each (post free to UK).
