2007 Fellowship Program Announcement
The Bibliographical Society of America (BSA) invites applications for
its annual short-term fellowship program, which supports bibliographical
inquiry as well as research in the history of the book trades and in
publishing history. Eligible topics may concentrate on books and
documents in any field, but should focus on the book or manuscript (the
physical object) as historical evidence. Such topics may include
establishing a text or studying the history of book production,
publication, distribution, collecting, or reading. Enumerative listings
do not fall within the scope of this program.
Among the BSA Fellowships offered each year are a number of named awards
funded through generous contributions from members of the
* The Folter Fellowship in the History of Bibliography
* The Katharine Pantzer Fellowship in the British Book
* The McCorison Fellowship for the History and Bibliography
of Printing in Canada and the United States: the Gift of
Donald Oresman ($2,000);
* The Reese Fellowship for American Bibliography and the
History of the Book in the Americas ($2,000).
Applicants need not apply for a specific named fellowship to be
eligible, although if their research falls within the scope of a
particular award they may wish to shape their project description

to applicants of any nationality, with or without current academic
