The British Society of Russian Philately Strikes Again


Recently I blogged about the last journal of the BJRP, which showed a great effort from the society's part. 

Yesterday, as a member of the Society, I received an email with my credential to the private (member) area of the society's website. So in a matter of seconds, prompted by the childish desire to 'look above the window', there I was.

I had an amazing surprise, to say the least: the complete run of the prestigious British Journal of Russian Philately, starting from 1946, available in scanned PDF format and ... for free!

More than 60 years of some of the greatest articles on Russian philately, just under the mouse. Just imagine, a researcher's dream!

It is heartwarming to see that the BJRP board has understood that one of the greatest strength of any philatelic society lies in its publications. Making it available to such extent to its members is certainly a great step forward. And the cherry on top is that other functions will be implemented in the near future for members on the website.

So, if you are not already member, make sure that you don't miss this opportunity and ask for membership in the prestigious and excellent British Society of Russian Philately.
