Founded in 1943, the British North America Philatelic Society Ltd. (BNAPS) is an international organization devoted to the collecting and study of the stamps, postal markings, and postal history of Canada and its pre-Confederation colonies. An enduring part of BNAPS' contribution to Canadian philately is its well-respected philatelic journal, BNA Topics.

The late Horace Harrison, a long-time member of the society who served as its President shortly before his passing, firmly believed that philatelic knowledge should be shared among all philatelists. In his will Horace bequeathed financial support to BNAPS to encourage such projects. Recently, BNAPS has decided to place the vast library of information contained in back issues of BNA Topics on the Internet.

A facsimile of each issue of BNA Topics from 1944 to 2000 is available separately in an Adobe .pdf file at this website. The material is copyrighted by BNAPS and if used as a reference the source should be acknowledged. The Table of Contents of all issues is also on-line, as is the searchable Cumulative Index to BNA TOPICS compiled by P. Charles Livermore. In another file researchers will also find an index to every mention of Newfoundland stamp or postal history material found in BNA Topics.

The following people were instrumental in providing copies of all issues of BNA Topics to enable them to be scanned for storage onto this library site: Martin Goebel, Thomas F. Nemec, K. Wayne Smith, Charles J. G. Verge (much appreciated), Robert C. Smith, Robert A. Lee, Cimon Morin, Earle L. Covert and John M. Walsh. The collective thanks of the members of BNAPS goes to these contributors.

A Special Note of Thanks

A number of individuals (noted above) have been involved in the preparation of the online facsimile edition of BNA Topics. The Society would be remiss, however, if John Walsh were not singled out. John spent countless hours scanning the over 500 issues of Topics for this project. He has also been the driving force bringing this to fruition.
