Rupert Facsimile Annuals
Most collectors Authentic Facsimile Editions and Limited Editions of The Rupert Annual are now 'Out Of Print', and some are becoming harder to find as each month passes. We do have at least one copy of the editions that are listed below, and we do come across repeat copies to replace those that have been sold. With some years editions it has now become a labour of love!


Please note that the annuals for 1946, 1947,1954, 1956, 1960, 1961,1962,1964, 1967, 1968 & 1969 have not been reproduced in facsimile form due to the nature of the contents, being Rupert, Coon Island and other similar references. The last facsimile published was that for 1970. This was available in October 2011. It seems that the facsimile run has now come to an end, and there appears to be no current plans to issue 1971 and beyond.  Should this change you will find the information here.


For our Overseas customers, please note that there are postage charges for each item listed. Rupert annuals are weighty beasts and sending by Airmail is not cheap.  The postage is calculated by weight packed. These charges are standard unless Special Delivery Service is mentioned.


For all UK deliveries there is a nominal postage contribution of £1.90 + vat per annual unless a Special Delivery Service is specified. (Please see Terms & Conditions or Shipping and Delivery sections for details).

 

Please be advised that this year (2012) there is not going to be a Rupert Facsimile.

Please Note - All Uk and Europe postage charges have VAT added, in line with the new VAT rules.

This is added automatically as the order is processed securely.
