YAHS Record Series
Since the Society was founded, over 160 book-length volumes have been published in the Record Series. Generally these are transcriptions of medieval or modern historical documents, with an editor's introduction. Thanks to this series, significant sources have been made accessible, and interpreted, for a wider readership. The scope of YAHS Record Series's contribution to the study of Yorkshire's past is clear from this downloadable list of titles.
Marking the 150th anniversary of the Society’s foundation in 1863, a selection of fifty out-of-print YAHSRS titles was made available through the Cambridge University Press print-on-demand programme. Each volume includes a brief introduction by a member of the Record Series Committee describing the Society’s achievements in the study of the history and archaeology of England’s largest historic county, with a brief note about each work. The selection of titles includes the celebrated ‘Early Yorkshire Charters’ volumes edited by Sir Charles Clay.
