The George Borrow Society Bulletin, Autumn 2010

Cover of the George Borrow Bulletin The Autumn 2010 George Borrow Bulletin is now out (Series 2, No. 1).

This is the first Bulletin of our second series.  It has a new look and continues the excellent material we’ve grown used to over the past 40 issues of the Bulletin, which are now known as Series 1.

The Bulletin covered the Society’s visit to Debrecen, Hungary in October 2010.  If you weren’t able to attend then not only can you read what our members saw and did, but also read the talks that were given.  There’s some very good photographs too.

Borrow being Borrow, there are lots of items on other places associated with him from Horncastle to the Dee, from Spain to Dunbar.  Something for everyone you might say.

Back copies of the Bulletin are available: see our link on the Bulletin on the left hand side of this page.

Finally, if your looking for a specific topic and need to know which Bulletins covered it (and an awful lot has been covered), you are best to click on our indexes, again to the left of this page.  The Series 1 Index covers all the Bulletins upto Spring 2010; with Series 2 covering all those from that date (including this one).
