Postal History publishing, and sale of books, sponsorship of authors and postal history research, through grants, guidance and support - are the main objectives of the Stuart Rossiter Trust. The trust is a Registered Charity Number 292076.
Trustees will endeavour to arrange with the author that the content
of the work fulfills the standard as set out in the Trust’s
Guidelines for Authors. For this reason it is essential that discussion
takes place between the author and the Trustees at an early stage
during the preparation of the work. The Trustees do not expect
to act in an editorial role with regard to the text. However,
the Trustees may wish to discuss with the authors the overall
quality of the layout and general appearance of the work. They
may wish to set the standards in each case for the materials used,
binding, covers or boards, jacket and other aspects as these would
significantly affect the sales of the work.
An agreement will be drawn up to govern the relationship between the Trust and the author. Such agreement will include clauses covering a number of practical matters.
Trust does not pay any fee to an author.
Authors must get Trust approval beforehand for any costs the author wishes the Trust to bear.
Should an author insist on verifying all changes, however minor, then this must be made clear when a work is submitted for consideration for publication.
The Trust’s preference for naming an author is simply <Forename Surname>, e.g. Alan Other. If authors have a particular request to be named in a different format, then this should be made clear.
Unless otherwise requested, non-philatelic titles and awards will be omitted, e.g. Prof. Alan N. Other VC, RDP should be reduced to Alan Other RDP. More than one philatelic honour may be included as appropriate, eg Alan Other RDP FRPSL.
A work that is to be published by the Trust may take the form of:
Trustees may designate either of these forms of publication, or
a mixed combination from the outset, or a mixed combination but
staggered at intervals of time. For example, an agreed number of
books in hardbound form may need to be sold before that work is
marketed in the form of a cd.
