The Bulletin of the SIS

The Bulletin is the Society’s journal, published four times a year and sent free to members. It is attractively produced and illustrated, and contains information and articles about a wide range of instruments, as well as book and exhibition reviews, news of SIS activities, and meetings of related societies. There is a lively letters page and ‘mystery objects’ are presented whilst antique dealers and auction houses regularly take advertising space, so that collectors may find the Bulletin a means of learning about upcoming sales and adding to their collections.
