URLWhere you will find..
Austria Philatelic Society U.S. The U.S.A.-based society with much the same aims and objectives as us. Note that their name begins 'Austria' and ours 'Austrian', although neither Society is based in Austria and neither is restricted to Austrians. Austrian philately is full of obscurities!
Philatelistenklub Merkur Innsbruck The Philatelistenklub Merkur Innsbruck, founded in 1928, has a formal Partnership with the APS; reciprocal visits are encouraged and information exchanged. They publish a series of monographs on Austrian Philately (mainly Tirol-oriented) and held an International Exhibition in 2003.

PDF copies can be downloaded, although you need the latest Acrobat reader to open them. JPGs are also possible, albeit one at a time. These are images, not words: text searching isn't possible.
