The Early English Text Society

Publications

The Original Series began in 1864 and continues to the present. In 1867 an Extra Series was started, of texts already printed but not in satisfactory or readily obtainable editions. In 1921 the Extra Series was discontinued and all publications were subsequently listed and numbered as part of the Original Series. In 1970 the Supplementary Series was initiated: volumes in this series are issued only occasionally and as suitable texts become available.

New volumes are published on behalf of the Society by the Oxford University Press, which also holds the backlist dating back to 1864. The majority of our out-of-print titles are now available by digital print on demand from the website of Oxford University Press.
