The George Borrow Bulletin

The George Borrow Bulletin (ISSN 0962-9390) was established in 1991 and was published twice-yearly, with the last issue being Spring 2018. The Bulletin aimed to present critical articles and original research on Borrow’s life and work, and his circle. It also provided an opportunity for members to keep in touch with relevant events, news items, books and other publications. Its regular Notes and Queries section enabled readers both to offer short notes on points of interest without extending to a full length article, and to raise queries about Borrow which often, frustratingly, attracted no answers (though we do know what Borrow meant by ‘matthew mattocks’!). Dr. Ann Ridler has was the Editor of the Bulletin since 1991, until her death on 28th November 2018.

Published copies are deposited in the copyright libraries and are available in other some libraries which were corporate members of the Society

A cumulative thematic index of the Bulletin exists, covering many but not all of the published Bulletins.

The contents of the George Borrow Society Bulletins are on our Bulletins Contents page.
