There is no minimum or maximum set for donations towards printing books, any amount will be acknowledged.
Sponsor a book
In the past, many people have made donations in the name of family or friends to help with the printing costs of new books and reprints. We would like to encourage members and others to continue this tradition. The name of the person in whose memory the donation is made will be included in the book. In addition to being a fitting memorial, donations of this type will help further the aims of the Society and keep prices as low as possible.
The donor can specify a book that he / she wishes to sponsor, though it should be noted that some books sell more quickly than others and donors may have to wait long if a slow selling book is chosen which we still have in stock.
If no book is being specified, the donation will be used for the publication that is being printed / reprinted next.
The acknowledgement lasts for one print / reprint only, which usually produces 150 to 200 copies of one publication. The cost of one such print run is around £ 2,000.
Depending on the amount of the donation, the wording in the sponsored book will read:
(1) "The printing of this book was made possible by the generous donation of [name]" or "The printing of this book was made possible by a generous donation in memory of [name]" for donations covering the full cost of printing; or
(2) "The printing of this book was made possible in part by the generous donation of [name]" or "The printing of this book was made possible in part by a generous donation in memory of [name]" for donations covering part of the cost of printing.
