PERFIN SOCIETY LIBRARY
Starting in 1961 with just 15 items, the society now maintains an extensive library of several thousand books, articles and
periodicals from around the world. Every item is given a unique 4-digit library number.
Sean Brady is our new Librarian. He has only recently taken delivery of the library stock and is not yet ready to deal with requests for information.
Thanks to the work of our Bulletin Editor, Maurice Harp, we now have scans available of a large number of library items, in pdf format. These are gradually being added to this website and can be accessed from the List of items by Library Number.
We gratefully acknowledge the permission granted by The Perfins Club to reproduce material published by them.
The library also now holds various documents which were saved by the Society when the J. Sloper & Co. works were closed in the 1990s. The firm invented the perfin process - see the FAQ page for more information. One of these items is an 1897 image of Slopers' office in the City of London:
