London Record Society Volumes

The London Record Society is a charity founded in 1964 to stimulate interest in archives relating to London. It holdsĀ an annual public lecture dealing with an aspect of London archives and publishes volumes of transcripts, translations, abstracts and lists of primary sources relating to the history of London.

These volumes are carefully prepared by specialists in their subject and published as quality hardback books. Many of the forty-five or so volumes published by the Society are now available online via British History Online. Suggestions about the work of the Society and about possible future volumes are always most welcome, for more details see the Publications Proposal section under About Us.
