Founded in December 1964 to publish transcripts, abstracts and lists of the primary sources for the history of London, and generally to stimulate interest in archives relating to London, the Society aims to publish a volume a year. The volumes appear in hard covers, and are carefully prepared by specialists in their subject. Each volume contains a substantial historical introduction to the edited text and a full index.

The Society’s Annual General Meeting is generally held in October, followed by a lecture on the subject of the society’s recent publications. New members, whether individual or institutional, are most welcome. Members are entitled to a complimentary copy of the Society’s annual publication. Details of how to become a member can be found on the Membership page above.
