The Bibliographical Society was founded in 1892 to promote and encourage study and research in historical, analytical, descriptive and textual bibliography.  Since then its scope has widened to include the making and use of manuscripts, the history of printing, publishing and illustration, the study of bookbinding, and the history of the book, as well as the history of libraries and the study of provenance, readership, and book collecting.

Members’ interests extend to every part of the world and to all periods. Historians, students of literature, humanities scholars in all fields, librarians, and all book lovers, amateurs and professionals, will benefit from the Society’s activities and publications.
