Anyone know precisely when BMC (Book & Magazine Collector) ceased publication? They were up in the early 300's a few years back (e.g. #309, July 2009 --which I bought), & I just wondered if anyone knew when the last issue was; month & year etc.

Well (sorry, answering myself here...) I've found a August 2010 issue (#323)...

BOOK COLLECTOR 2010...

...which is probably quite late. See if I can find a later one...

The final issue was no. 328, dated Christmas 2010 (following after 327 for December 2010). We subscribed, and were sorry to see it end.

Indeed; it was always interesting. There are various stories as to why it folded; and by all accounts it was profit making --so it's a pity it's no longer around.

Cheers for the information W&C!

I don't understand your point; what are you saying?
