Free BAA publications available

Offer of free BAA publications to members

Thanks to several generous donations, we have now managed to obtain nearly complete spare loose sets of our publications, in addition to the complete runs of bound volumes held in London. We have a large excess stock of publications, for which storage space is limited, and the Board of Trustees has agreed to release some to members at no charge.

Members who are collectors may therefore be interested in acquiring free spare copies of the Journal (1931-1980 inclusive), Handbook (1936-1995) and Memoirs (1936-1992). Not all issues are available, and not all are in perfect condition, but please enquire if interested. A complete list of the Memoirs for identification purposes was published in the February Journal.

For a small parcel, postage would simply be charged at cost. Any long run of publications would have to be collected from Northamptonshire. Overseas members wanting free back numbers would have to arrange for payment and postage via a UK member.

Please contact me to discuss your requirements - by email only - on richardmckim@btinternet.com, and stating your membership number unless you are known to me personally.

Free publications still available

I should like to add that we also have spare copies of the hardbound Index to the second fifty years of the BAA Journal to give away to members who would like them (Volumes 51-100, 1940-1990), as there is a large stock.

Several members have taken up the offer of free publications, so if anyone else would like any they should get in touch with me sooner rather than later before stocks are exhausted.
