About

Bibliographical Society of Australia and New Zealand

The Bibliographical Society of Australia and New Zealand (BSANZ) promotes research in physical and textual bibliography and the history of the written word. It was founded in Melbourne in February 1969 following discussions among bibliographers working in both countries.

The research interests of members span all studies that form part of or are related to physical bibliography, including the history of printing, publishing, bookselling, typefounding, papermaking, bookbinding; palaeography and codicology; and textual bibliography.
