Digital Editions of the Society’s historic volumes are available for download in pdf form. Over time, the aim is to republish all but the most recent volumes as Digital Editions, complementing the Society’s print channel and increasing accessibility. (A number of historic volumes are also available as Online Books on this website.)
All pdfs are fully searchable. Some files are quite large, and could take some time to download, especially over a slow connection. Approximate filesizes are shown in the list below.
Many of the Society’s early volumes were scanned and digitized by Google and/or Microsoft’s Internet Archive, and are made available by arrangement with HathiTrust.
