Postal Collectors Circular
London: Huardel & Co., 1899

The period initially covered by Arts: Search is 1899 [all issues]

A short-lived monthly [only 5 issues published between January-May 1899.] Produced in response to the growing poster - collecting craze. The avowed object of the magazine was "not to compete with existing publications, which deal rather with the Poster in its relation to Art, but to study the requirements of the Poster Collector, and to provide him with a useful and comprehensive guide, to which he may turn for information bearing directly upon his hobby. With this object in view we shall endeavour to present, from month to month, a general review of all that is new and interesting in the poster world, and we shall direct attention to the more important examples of Posters , both British and Foreign, and illustrate the most notable ones" [ The Poster Collector's Circular no.1, January 1899 p.3]. The magazine contained details of new publications on the poster; prices realised for posters in auction; and advice on the preservation of posters.
