Public Display from the Row Collection
To mark the passing of King Bhumipol and the forthcoming coronation of Prince Vajiralongkorn, the British Library has mounted a number of sheets from the Row Collection of Siam into the public display panels. It is also almost one hundred years since the Row Collection was given to the British Museum.
The exhibition includes some early rarities, including the very first issues of Thailand.
It is worth noting that serious researchers may, by appointment, see many more items from the Row, Tapling, De La Rue and UPU collections, to name but a few.
Publication - The Definitive Stamps of King Bhumipol
The society has printed issue 3 of Derek Bingham's work on the details of these stamps. The price is £20 plus P&P. Please contact the Publications Secretary, Jonathan Manning if you wish to buy a copy.
