Souvenirs produced for the hundreds of stamp exhibitions held in Great Britain between 1890 and 1993.

The
electronic version is now complete with most items illustrated in colour and with extensive amendments and additions to the printed version. As a taster, the proposed sleeve text states:: In 1995 Glenn Morgan published a printed catalogue comprising 783 items from 215 exhibitions. This second edition has expanded to c1200 items from 270+ shows, only made possible by Graham Wilson's approach suggesting collaboration. Advances in computer technology have now enabled approaching 1000 items to be illustrated life-size in colour compared with a mere 65 reduced-size black and white images previously. It is now also possible to sell regularly updated versions of this catalogue by burning discs to order.

Scope
This catalogue includes all stamp exhibition souvenir sheets, cards and labels known to the authors, together with as much information about them as could be found. This includes recent sale prices, title of show, dates and locations, artist, printer, design data, etc. The word Stamp Exhibitions in the title of this catalogue should be taken to include any philatelic event for which souvenirs are produced, such as stamp fairs and philatelic weekends, even though there may have been no formal exhibition of stamps as such. Specifically excluded are postcards, stamp booklets and most advertising labels produced after 1960 for pre-show publicity. 

About this CD
Written in HTML code using Microsoft FrontPage 2000®, most images were scanned in jpeg format on a Canon Lide50 flatbed scanner at various resolutions so that the resultant image can be easily viewed on a 1024x768 computer screen. Each item is reproduced twice, once as a 110 pixel high thumbnail and again as a full screen image. As an aid to collecting, there is a simple checklist in Microsoft Word® format that you can print off, tick and take to stamp fairs. A licence-free viewer is included for those without Microsoft Word or Works®.
