The Devonshire Association (DA) is a learned society founded in 1862 by William Pengelly and modelled on the British Association, but concentrating on research subjects linked to Devon in the focal areas of science, literature and the arts. The first meeting was held in Exeter in 1862 with a membership of 69 and, except for 1942, meetings have been held annually in different locations around the county every year since. A potted Association history as well as a comprehensive list of Presidents from 1863 to 2011 is available at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Devonshire_Association. Its fiftieth meeting took the form of a lavish and well-attended four-day programme of speeches, lectures and excursions. The Proceedings of this Jubilee Meeting are to be found in a copy of a rare and much sought-after journal that can be downloaded from the Internet Archive. Google has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries. These books, on which copyright has expired, are available for free educational and research use, both as individual books and as full collections to aid researchers.
