Royal *2019* Royale great time to include Canada’s philatelic library

The Harry Sutherland Philatelic Library at the Vincent Graves Philatelic Research Foundation extends an invitation to all attendees of ROYAL *2019* ROYALE to spend a day with us!

The Harry Sutherland Philatelic Library  at the Vincent Graves Greene Philatelic Research Foundation aims to support the work of the Greene Foundation and philately in Canada by:

  • providing a comprehensive collection of items relating to British North American and Canadian philately;
  • providing an up-to-date collection of items relating to expertizing, frauds and forgeries;
  • supporting the basic needs of the Canadian philatelic community with definitive works on important collecting areas and the most recent general catalogues.

The HSPL is noted for:

  • the best B.N.A. reference collection in the world
  • a significant collection of early Canadian philatelic journals in OCR searchable format
  • a comprehensive collection of Canadian auction catalogues*
  • historical runs of selected auction catalogues
  • research collections from important Canadian philatelists
  • historical collection of prospectus for International and Canadian stamp exhibitions

Our reference librarian, Kathy Hartley says: “Let me give you some more examples why you might want to visit our library: Be welcomed. Feel at ease. Share what you know. Hear what others have to say. Exchange information, or items. Make plans. Make bigger plans. Discuss. Collaborate. Browse the latest magazines or journals. Know what book you require and pull it off the shelf. Take it home. Ask for help. Question. Watch excitement happened. Be part of an incredible thing.”

So while attending the popular Royal *2019* Royale, take time to  spend a day with us! Book a day ahead of or following the convention and use the GO bus, with the stop conveniently located directly across the street from the hotel, to travel in to Toronto. From its terminus at either the Union or York Mills subway station, we’re just a few stops away at Summerhill.
