The Manx Society for the Publication of National Documents

The Manx Society (or to give its full title: The Manx Society for the Publication of National Documents) managed between 1858 and 1893 to produce 33 volumes of Manx-related material on a wide variety and range of topics.

Those titles are best summarised here:
http://www.royalhistoricalsociety.org/manxsociety.pdf

Many have been digitised by a range of libraries though not one seems to either have a full set or to have digitised all titles if they do possess a full run. The Internet Archive is not the easiest to use to locate what has been digitised as it appears to have little or no concern for bibliographical accuracy.

I have located a good number of the titles and will post from time to time with links.

  2. This is really useful. Am sure there used to be a good number of the volumes available through Amazon books, but as you said elsewhere they seem to have taken them down. 😦 I think those print on demand publishers have made them available, but they don’t have the searchability of the digital and obviously you have to pay for them. Shame.
