The Bibliographical Society

RESEARCH GRANTS AND FELLOWSHIPS

Katharine F. Pantzer Jr Research Fellowship in the History of the Printed Book

The Bibliographical Society has received a generous bequest from the estate of the distinguished bibliographer Katharine F. Pantzer Jr and has established awards in her memory. Applications are now invited for the Pantzer Fellowship, to be awarded for the second time in 2009. Applicants' research must be within the field of the bibliographical or book-historical study of the printed book in the hand-press period, that is up to c.1830. Applicants should be established scholars in the field but may be university-based or independent researchers. There are no restrictions as to age or nationality of applicants. The Fellowship, worth up to £4,000, is intended to assist with both immediate research needs, such as microfilms or travelling expenses, and longer-term support, for example prolonged visits to libraries and archives. Applicants may use a part of the Fellowship award to pay for teaching cover.

Applications are invited for the Pantzer Fellowship, worth up to £4,000, also to be awarded for the second time in 2009. Applicants' research must be within the field of the bibliographical or book-historical study of the printed book in the hand-press period, that is up to c.1830. Otherwise, the conditions are similar to those for Major Grants.

Major Grants for Bibliographical Research

Applications are invited from scholars engaged in bibliographical research (on, for example, book history, textual transmission, publishing, printing, bookbinding, book-ownership and book-collecting) for Major Grants to be awarded in 2009. The Society hopes to make awards both for immediate research needs, such as for microfilms or travelling expenses, and for longer-term support, for example to assist with prolonged visits to libraries and archives. Several Major Grants, up to £2,000 each, will be awarded.

Applications for all of the above-mentioned awards must be received by 1 November 2008.

The Society also accepts bid for Minor Grants (£50-£200) at any time during the year.

Further details of all awards and application forms may be found on the Society's website (http://www.bibsoc.org.uk). Further information (also guidelines and application forms in hard copy if required) may be obtained from Dr John Hinks, Centre for Urban History, University of Leicester, LE1 7RH (email jh241@le.ac.uk).
