Handbooks

Handbooks

Mainly club handbooks published in the United Kingdom, given out to potential new members or current members, some well known authors have written these booklets, Bernard Darwin, Robert Browning, Henry Longhurst, Tom Scott to name but a few. Multiple editions are often found from the same club, with updated information often of the club committee and fees. Most pre 1940 handbooks are clearly dated, post 1946 are indevarantly not, presuming that the club could keep giving them out for a few years after publication, this not being possible if clearly dated. They make for great reading and are an incredible challange to collect.
