Administrative history

The Oxford Bibliographical Society developed out of the University of Oxfords' vast publishing and library domain by members of the university community interested in book collections and publishing. It was founded on 1 January 1922 at Oxford and the Society met twice a term. The first meeting consisted of conversational lectures and the second meeting consisted of papers presented by members, or guests, and discussions. The second meeting was reserved for exhibitions of important books, manuscripts and bindings. The Society had a council and subscription fees. (Taken from: Oxford Bibliographical Society. Proceedings & Papers. Vol. 1, Part II, 1925.)
