About The New Baxter Society

The New Baxter Society was formed in 1983, following a very successful exhibition of Baxter's work at Reading Museum and Art Gallery. Our objectives are to further interest in the work of George Baxter, his Licensees and Nineteenth-Century Colour Printing. Members include collectors, academics and public bodies around the globe including the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, USA and mainland Europe.

Members' articles and illustrations are included in the three 8-page Newsletters circulated each year and regular Members' Meetings are arranged which may take the form of a lecture, an exhibition or a visit to view Collections.  The Society has published a number of reference books for collectors covering the work of George Baxter, Abraham Le Blond, Joseph Mansell and Bradshaw & Blacklock.

One of our Summer Meetings was held in Redbourn, giving members the chance to bring along and talk about some favourite items from their own collections. Later in the year we combined the formality of our AGM with interesting visits to the collections held by the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery and also the Birmingham Central Library. Other recent events have included: a visit to George Baxter's birthplace of Lewes where the Town Council were exhibiting their collection, presentations by Mic Relf; 'Vincent Brooks, Colour Printer' and Syd Exton 'The Views & Souvenirs of Thomas Nelson'.
