For subscribers: Odd Volumes from The Fortnightly Review.

An Announcement.

odd_volumes_rnd150tmIN 2014, THE Fortnightly Review began offering subscribers a collection of titles reflecting the diverse interests of the editors. We called our imprint Odd Volumes, a salute to The Sette of Odd Volumes, a celebrated and long-lived association of bibliophiles founded in London in 1878 by Bernard Quaritch and others. (Our colophon is in fact borrowed from some of the Sette’s early printed pieces.)

Instructions for subscribers only: You may select one title each year on entering a new subscription or on renewal. Instead of ordering through Amazon, simply contact us with the email address you used to enter your subscription and let us know which book you’d like sent. You’ll receive the book and, if applicable,  a PayPal invoice for the discounted price.

You may enter a new subscription by visiting the subscription page here.
