1557-0355 (Online Edition)

An ongoing monographic series of books, articles and other materials, available in free online format (below) as well as in print, designed to provide researchers with selections of the original documents in transcription, translation, or manuscript reproduction.

Most of these will be in the form of articles and short books in the tradition of historical societies of the past, available in several formats. More extensive books will be issued periodically, containing large collections of translations or compilations of previous publications.
Educators who prefer to have print copies for their students, rather than the free online-accessible PDF files given below, may write to this organization to request bulk copies available for the cost of printing and shipping.

Content will take several forms, including translated excerpts from the original documents, for use in college courses or personal research; and transcriptions or reproductions of the manuscripts, for use by professional historians.
