The Bibliographical Society of America – Harry Ransom Center
Pforzheimer Fellowship in Bibliography

The Harry Ransom Center co-sponsors two annual research fellowships with the Bibliographical Society of America (BSA), the oldest scholarly society in North America dedicated to the study of books and manuscripts as physical objects. The BSA was organized in 1904 and incorporated in 1927 with the principal objectives of promoting bibliographical research and issuing bibliographical publications.

The BSA-Harry Ransom Center Pforzheimer Fellowship in Bibliography (two awards annually at $3,000 each) supports the bibliographical study of early modern books and manuscripts, 1455–1700, held in the Ransom Center's Pforzheimer Library and in related collections of early printed books and manuscripts, including the Pforzheimer Gutenberg Bible and Incunabula. Other significant early holdings include the John Henry Wrenn Library, the Recusant (English Catholics) collection, and the Ransom Center's general holdings of early English books.

Research must be conducted at the Harry Ransom Center. More information about the Ransom Center's holdings and conducting research at the Ransom Center may be found on the following pages:
