The set of handbooks run from 1947-48 up to 1956-57 and make a nice little collection. There is likely a handbook for season 1946-47 but I've never come across one.

The first book to cover the club's history is the 1953 publication 'Falkirk Football Club Through The Years' and it contains some excellent insights. The '1957 Scottish Cup Souvenir Handbook' and the '1977 Centenary Brochure' borrow heavily from this initial publication.

Michael White's 4 volume set 'The Brockville/Falkirk Bairns' is still the most comprehensive look at the club's history and is well worth owning if you can obtain a set. His other books focus mainly on the 1957 Scottish Cup winning side and on Falkirk players with International caps.

Paul Robertson's 'Touching All' is a very professional effort and provides and excellent read on some of Falkirk's greatest players.
