New distributor for BNAPS books

The British North America Philatelic Society (BNAPS) recently announced major changes to its book department.

Effective Sept. 30, a new agent – dealer and auctioneer Bill Longley – is replacing Sparks Auctions to handle the sale and distribution of BNAPS’ books.

“We look forward to a long and productive relationship with Bill Longley,” reads a statement issued by BNAPS this September. “We thank Sparks Auctions (and earlier Ian Kimmerly Stamps) for their strong support of the BNAPS publications program over the last 15 years. The great assistance of Brian Wolfenden over that time is especially appreciated.”

All sales are suspended until about mid-November as the books’ storage location is relocated from Ottawa to Burlington, Ont.

BNAPS actively encourages the publication of new books on suitable subjects in British North America philately through its handbooks and ongoing “Exhibit Series,” which are produced by the publications committee.
