Since its foundation, the Society has published over one hundred volumes of its Transactions, a refereed journal, which includes not only the best of the papers presented to its members, but the best of others offered for publication. These articles have added notably and distinctively to the region’s body of historical knowledge. Members receive a copy of each volume as it is published, and many important libraries in Britain and abroad are subscribing members, some holding complete sets from the Society’s foundation in 1883 onwards.
A full set of Transactions is held in the Society’s library, housed in Manchester Central Library and at many other libraries in Lancashire and Cheshire.
Back copies of some issues (volumes 44 to 109) are available for purchase using this form and some early copies of the Transactions can be viewed at archive.org (You may need to register, which is free.)
