Digitised copies

The journals have been digitised and are available to Society members.

We have produced 43 volumes of the Journal and produced an index of the first 25 volumes which you can either read here or download the original document here: NWCH Journals Complete Index Volumes I to XXV

 Volumes I to VI and Volumes XLI to XLIII are searchable

Volumes VII to XL are provided in two formats in order to make them available as soon as possible. We had them scanned in but checking of the OCR is very time consuming as we discovered in checking Volumes I to VI. The formats are:

  • Image PDF: PDF of scanned images which is not searchable,

  • OCR Text PDF: PDF of Optical Character Recognition (OCR) processed text which is searchable but not fully checked and corrected.


Here are two free sample copies:
