Overview

Scholars have always recognized the importance of the English Local Records Society publications as a vital historical source. As they were never distributed on a commercial basis, however, few libraries have complete sets of any of them.

The microfiche edition makes these valuable publications readily available to researchers everywhere. Volumes before 1957 are reproduced in accordance with the listings in Texts and Calendars compiled by E.L.C. Mullins (Royal Historical Society, 1958) which also serves as a comprehensive index to the series. By using this index readers can gain immediate access to one of the largest and most important primary sources of English history.

The number in parentheses after each title listed below is the Texts and Calendars reference number. Please ask for our Analytical Catalogue of Record Society Publications listing the title and number of microfiche in each volume.
