The Row Collection of Siam - Exhibition at the British Library
R. W. H. Row was a pioneer and one of the greats in Thai philately. He died in February 1919 and his collection was bequeathed to the British Museum, now transferred to the British Library in London. Up to now it has only been available for inspection by appointment.
The British Library staff have worked hard to put up a public display of many of the early and important items. This is available for viewing at any time the British Library is normally open until 11 October 2020. It is in case 9, slides 33-50 of the philatelic display on the upper ground floor at St Pancras.
