The Early Book Society grew out of sessions planned for the International Congress on Medieval Studies (Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo) by Sarah Horrall and Martha Driver. Founded as an independent entity in 1987, the Society was formed to bring together all those who are interested in any aspect of the study of manuscripts and early printed books. EBS now has 405 members in the US, Canada, Japan, Great Britain, and the Continent. Membership brings announcements of EBS activities, including the biennial conference, as well as the membership list and JEBS, both published annually, along with pre-publication discounts on books of interest to members, and access to the EBS website and chatline. Dues are $40 or £24 for 2016-2017 and are to be paid not later than May 1, 2017, in order to include the Journal. One reminder notice will be sent. Please share this announcement with an interested friend.
I enclose $40 or £24 as dues for 2016-2017 membership in EBS.
