The Pantzer Senior Fellowship in Bibliography and the British Book Trades

The Bibliographical Society of America announces a new fellowship funded by a bequest of Katharine F. Pantzer Jr., an honorary member of the Society and editor of the revised Short-Title Catalogue of Books Printed in England, Scotland, and Ireland, and of English Books Printed Abroad, 1475-1640. Providing a stipend of $6,000, the Pantzer Senior Fellowship will support sustained research in topics relating to book production and distribution in Britain during the hand-press period as well as studies of authorship, reading and collecting based on the examination of British books published in that period. It may be held for two to three months and complements the short-term Pantzer Fellowship, which will continue to be awarded by the Society.

Applications for the Pantzer Senior Fellowship, including three letters of reference, will be due on 1 December 2007 and should be addressed to: BSA Executive Secretary, P.O. Box 1537, Lenox Hill Station, New York, NY 10021, email:
