TitleOfficial journal and magazine
Extent3 volumes, 7 items
DescriptionPeriodicals produced by the Society through its Editorial Committee, arranged in two chronological sequences: 'Retort', 1950-1989 and 'Orbital', [1980]-1989. Predominantly comprising three bound volumes of 'Retort', 1950-1978. The 1980s issues are much more informal in style and appear in a magazine rather than journal format.
ArrangementIssues of 'Retort' up to 1978 were assembled in a chronological sequence and bound in three volumes, each prefaced with a contents page, in 1984, prior to deposit in the Archives. At the time, at least two issues were believed to be missing from the sequence. A copy of 'Retort', vol 43, no 1, Autumn 1967, previously deposited in the Archives, and missing from the bound volumes, has been added to the series; all other copies from this unbound set have been weeded as duplicates. Two issues produced when the journal was revived in the 1980s, and received at the time of deposit, have been added to the series.
