The Transactions and The Library

The Society has published a journal since 1893, originally entitled The Transactions of the Bibliographical Society. In 1920 it took over the publication of The Library (which had appeared since 1889) and adopted that as the main title of the Transactions.

The Oxford University Press holds the last five years' stock of The Library. Members' orders for these should be sent to the Hon. Secretary, enclosing an appropriate remittance: single parts, £5.00 each, volumes £19.00 (postage included).

Orders from non-members for these volumes, and for subscriptions to The Library only (not involving membership of the Society) should be sent to Journals Subscriptions, Oxford University Press, Walton Street, Oxford OX2 6DP.

Some earlier back issues of The Transactions and The Library are also obtainable; members should enquire of the Hon. Secretary as to availability and price.
