Does anyone know if there is a definitve list of the Postcards published by Valentine?

I'm mostly interested in the RP Postcards starting with the letter "D" (eg D8888)

I would also ask the same about Reliable Series postcards.

Valentines & Sons Ltd., Dundee was one of the most prominent and prolific publishers of Postcards with a history of over 150 years! They ceased operating in 1994

The University of St Andrews Library has a large collection of archives form this company and a list can be found here: https://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/imu/cache/multimedia/009975.pdf which may be of interest/help.

There's also a substantial archive of 3,000+ negatives of Irish Valentine postcards available at the National Library of Ireland here: http://www.nli.ie/en/udlist/photographs ... 372a2e5a15
