The Bookplate Journal has been issued by the Society since 1983. Its initial launch was made possible thanks to a modest surplus from running the XIX International Ex-libris Congress at Keble College, Oxford in 1982. After twenty volumes (forty issues) had appeared, a new editor, Paul Latcham, created a successful, enlarged format in 2003. Covers of the whole run to date are pictured below, but we can supply only about half of the First Series, and there is one of the Second Series that is no longer available (September 2003).

Here in these volumes of The Bookplate Journal has been assembled, over the years, a huge body of information about British and other bookplates. The well-researched, scholarly articles remain, for the most part, as valid now as at the time they were written, and we owe a debt of gratitude to the authors and editors whose considerable efforts are represented here. The first four volumes were edited by Professor William E. Butler, Brian North Lee produced the next five issues before the two of them alternated as editor. From 1994 to the end of 1998, Lee edited the March issue and John Blatchly the September one. The last eight numbers of the First Series were again under Lee's supervision. Paul Latcham was not only editor 2003-2008 but also did the page make-up. John Blatchly stepped in for the March 2009 issue before Peter Youatt took on the editorial role from September 2009 for eight years. The Society now has a rotating editorship amongst members of an Editorial Board.

Whether you are new to the subject of bookplates or have had a longstanding interest, if you are lacking back issues then it is greatly worth acquiring these. Prices for back issues of our journal have been unchanged for a number of years, so an increase may be expected before long. As stocks dwindle, availability is another good reason for not delaying in ordering back issues, and thirdly a small discount is offered on an order in quantity.

Paul Latcham wrote: The need to start work on an index was very much in my mind from early on in my tenure as editor of the Bookplate Journal. Eventually Hilary Marshall answered an appeal for help. The Bookplate Society owes a debt of gratitude to Hilary for the considerable effort she has put into a very time consuming job. It is nothing less than a valiant effort on Hilary's part that has enabled the publication of this splendid index. I am full of gratitude for her dedication and skill.
