Museum Press (1972-1997)

Miscellaneous publications

New Musical Express

The Museum Press was an offshoot of the Charles Hamilton Museum, and published a number of books on his writings from 1972's "A History of the Magnet and Gem" to 1997's "90 Glorious Years" - a mixture of new research and commentary and articles previously published in the Collector's Digest. All the books included a wealth of illustration (in fact volume 6 is almost entirely illustrations).

The Museum Press has also reprinted a small number of Charles Hamilton's stories that have become increasingly difficult to obtain.
