The Oxford Bibliographical Society is pleased to announce the forthcoming publication of the first in its Special Series of Manuscript Catalogues. The volume is Peter Kidd’s much-anticipated Descriptive Catalogue of the Medieval Manuscripts of The Queen’s College, Oxford. The volume retails at £90 but is free to members, existing and new (annual subscription: £20). In addition, to mark its publication, for orders placed before Monday 30 January 2017, non-members can purchase the volume at a reduced rate of £70.
Under a new concordat between the Oxford University Society of Bibliophiles and the Oxford Bibliographical Society, members of one society are invited to attend the meetings of the other. The meetings of the Bibliophiles will be listed on the OBS website, along with our own, from the beginning of this coming term (Michaelmas 2016).
Applications are now open for the 37th Conference on Book Trade History, Words on Paper: Transmission in Manuscript and Print, from the Fifteenth Century, to be held in London’s Stationers’ Hall on 29/30th November 2015. Conference delegates will also have the rare opportunity for a guided tour of the world-famous College of Arms.
