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.

Princeton University Library

The Friends of the Princeton University Library are
sponsoring several short-term Visiting Fellowships in order to
promote scholarly use of the research collections of the Library.
The Department of Rare Books and Special Collections, housed in the
Harvey S. Firestone Library, has substantial holdings of materials
pertaining to the western world and the Middle East from antiquity
to the present. The Rare Book Division is especially strong in
classical Latin texts, American history and literature, English
history and literature, and French, German, and Latin American
literature. The Manuscript Division holds Medieval and Renaissance
manuscripts and codices, and American and English literary and
historical manuscripts. The Visual Materials Division services the
Graphic Arts Collection, the Collection of Historic Maps, the
Theatre Collection, and the Numismatic Collection. The Seeley G.
Mudd Manuscript Library holds the Public Policy Papers and the
University Archives. The Marquand Library of Art and Archaeology
and the Gest Oriental Library and East Asian Collections are also
located on the University campus.

The Fellowships, which have a value of $1500 each, are meant
to help defray expenses in traveling to and from Princeton and
residing in Princeton during the tenure of the Fellowship. The
length of the Fellowship will depend on the applicant's research
proposal, but is normally one month. Fellowships are tenable from
May 1995 to April 1996.

There is no special application form. Applicants are asked
to submit a rsum and a brief research proposal to Fellowship
Committee, Princeton University Library, One Washington Road,
Princeton, NJ 08544. The proposal should address specifically the
relevance of the Princeton University Library Collections to the
proposed research. The applicant should also arrange for two
confidential letters of recommendation to be sent to the Committee.
The deadline for applications is 31 January 1995. This announcement
contains all the information necessary to complete the application
