Magazine Archive 1

The Society has published over 60 magazines ... to date.

Below you can find the first 23 magazines; subsequent issues are on separate pages (Magazine Archive 2 picks up from 1995 and Magazine Archive 3 completes the archive from 2004). The magazines are made up of articles submitted by members since the first issue in Autumn 1982. These are available to download as pdf files.

If you can't find what you want from the index of article titles, we have compiled a subject and author index - click here.

Transferring pdfs and indexing them has been labour-intensive and error-prone! If you discover any errors or broken links, please advise the web editor, simon williams:
