Publications index

An-up-to-date topographical index to the complete runs of MBS Transactions, MBS Bulletin and MBS Portfolio has been  prepared by William Lack. This include all but the most trivial of  references in these publications to churches, both in the UK and abroad, which contain, or have contained brasses, incised slabs or allied monuments. Illustrations are also indexed. It encompasses all Transactions, Bulletins and Portfolios up to September 2003.

In addition, to mark the issue of Bulletin 100, William Lack has compiled a complete index to Bulletins 1-100. This index comprises three sections:

1. A topographic list of references and illustrations, with all but the most trivial references to churches which contain, or have contained, brasses, incised slabs and allied monuments. Original references to the name of the person commemorated have been converted into references to the church concerned.

2. A general index which is not intended to be comprehensive but to list major papers, lecture reports, conference reports, etc.

3. An alphabetic index of books and important papers reviewed or described in the Notes on Books and Articles.

(Please note: the indices are in a file in .pdf format which requires Adobe Acrobat to read it. Click here to load the reader from the Adobe site - also available on many free discs with PC magazines)
