In 2002, the London-based Malta Study Circle printed a catalogue of Fuersts Maltese postcards- concurrently, the author published a brief biography. The intention of this publication is to present a historical register of a fast-disappearing Malta, as frozen on film by a sensitive psychoanalyst of the national spirit during the inter-war years. It contains over 200 photos of 1930s, Malta many of which are published here for the first time.
