Welcome to AHPCS

The American Historical Print Collectors Society (AHPCS) is a non-profit group that encourages the collection, preservation, study, and exhibition of original historical American prints that are 100 or more years old.

In our fifth decade, AHPCS has nearly 400 members including individual collectors, print dealers, curators, scholars and educational and other institutions. Founded in 1975, AHPCS:

  • Fosters the collection, preservation, study and exhibition of original historical American prints
  • Encourages and supports research and development of publications helpful to the appreciation and conservation of these prints
  • Cooperates with historical societies, museums, and other institutions and organizations having similar interests

Membership includes a subscription to our newsletter and our journal, Imprint, and provides opportunities to meet fellow collectors and to participate in a variety of activities taking place around the United States, including our annual meeting which will be held in Providence, Rhode Island in 2019.
