                   Fellowship Program

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.

BSA fellowships may be held for one or two months.  The
program is open to applicants of any nationality.
Fellows will be paid a stipend of up to $1,000 per month
in support of travel, living, and research expenses.

In 1994 the BSA awarded twelve months of support to nine
scholars from a variety of disciplines.

Applications, including three letters of reference, for
this program will be due on January 31, 1995.

Prospective applicants are invited to contact the BSA
Executive Secretary, P.O. Box 397, Grand Central Station,
New York, NY 10163, for application forms and additional
information about the program.
