2013 Fellowship Program Announcement
The BSA invites applications for its sixth annual Katharine Pantzer Senior
Fellowship in Bibliography and the British Book Trades as well as its annual
short-term fellowship program, all of which support bibliographical inquiry
and 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. Thanks to the generosity of donors, certain special fellowships
support research in particular areas of study. Applicants should therefore
read the fellowship titles and guidelines here to determine project
eligibility and fit. Please note: these fellowships do not support
enumerative bibliography (i.e. the preparation of lists). Individuals who
have not received support in the previous five years will be given
preference. All fellowships require a project report within one year of
receipt of the award, and a copy of any subsequent publications resulting
from the project, to be sent to the BSA.
--The Senior Katharine Pantzer Fellowship ($6,000); Supports research in
topics relating to book production and distribution in Britain during the
hand-press period as well as studies of authorship, reading, and collecting
based on the examination of British books published in that period, with a
special emphasis on descriptive bibliography.
--The BSA-ASECS Fellowship for Bibliographical Studies in the Eighteenth
Century ($3,000); Recipients must be a member of the American Society for
Eighteenth-Century Studies at the time of the award.
--The BSA Fellowship in Cartographical Bibliography ($3000); Supports
projects dealing with all aspects of the history, presentation, printing,
design, distribution, and reception of cartographical documents from
Renaissance times to the present, with a special emphasis on

book trades and publishing history in Britain.

in the Americas ($2,000).
