The collection is representative of the activity of the Liverpool Bibliographical Society from its preliminary organisation in the 1960s right through to 1995 when the last members meeting was held. Minutes of the meetings provide a detailed account of the workings of the society, where the discussion of guest speakers for members meetings and the organisation of visits are particularly illuminating. Through the letters section of the collection, the connections between the society and the wider community of the University, Liverpool and the North West in printing press, book and publishing professions, can be clearly established. Most noteworthy of these would be the society's involvement in the Book Trade in the North West Project, the School History Day Schools programme held by the Centre for Continuing Education at the University of Liverpool, the establishment of letterpress printing sessions and the organisation of antiquarian book exhibitions on behalf of its members.
