Publication News

February 2018
Now accepting orders from trade, members and public for A School Camp Fire. The order form at the bottom of the page has been updated to reflect this. There was an order form for members in the January 2018 Abbey Chronicle - we are only printing a short run of this title, as we realise it is unlikely to be as popular as some of the others, so please order as soon as you can, so we can gauge demand - but be aware it will not actually be published until May.

After the Executive Committee meeting in February 2014 we announced our long-term programme of publication. We decided that 3 titles a year was as much as could reasonably done with the commitments everyone has, and determined that as a general rule, titles should come out the month after the Chronicle’s normal publication month, enabling each to appear with a means of ordering it in the Chronicle immediately preceding its publication

In July 2016 we realised that 3 titles a year was more than we could reasonably cope with, so have scaled back to 2 per year. Revised proposed timetable below:

May – A School Camp-Fire 

October – Rachel in the Abbey - orders not accepted until after the September Chronicle appears.

2019 [provisional] 
April – The Troubles of Tazy

Pictures will appear on the page as titles become available to order.

The EJO Society has been granted reprinting rights for the titles originally published by Chambers and Muller, to which EJO's niece holds the copyright. Naturally, we started with Girls of the Hamlet Club - the true first title in the Abbey Series! We are now doing a short reprint run of this, Joy's New Adventure, and Biddy's Secret; orders for these may be entered on the form or emailed as specified. Heights of Heidelberg remains O/P

We are also currently out of stock of the Comparisons Booklet.

Rosaly's New School came out in October 2013, it being its centenary year; An Abbey Champion was published in February 2014;  The Two Form-Captains in May 2014, Maidlin to the Rescue in October 2014 Captain of the Fifth in February 2015, A Fiddler for the Abbey in June 2015, The Junior Captain in November 2015, Guardians of the Abbey in March 2016, School Without a Name in August 2016 and Ven at Gregory's in April 2017 and Rosamund's Victory in October 2017. We still have good stocks of all these titles. 
The catalogue includes an order form for you to print and send to Hilary, our Merchandise Coordinator, whose details are shown on it. You should not need to do this if you are a member of the EJO Society, as there was a printed copy sent out with your January 2018 Chronicle.
If you have problems viewing or printing the catalogue, please email the EJO Society.
NB the first prices shown here are for EJO Society members. Non-member prices are a little more, and shown in brackets. This is because of our changed tax liability consequent upon the Society's adopting a Constitution.
We can now accept trade and bulk orders for Rosamund's Victory - please email the EJO Society. Ordering for all our previous in-print titles is also available through Nielsens, but Rosamund's Victory is not notified to them yet, as we don't have the date finalised.  
We accept PayPal, so there is no problem for people ordering single copies from abroad, just email the Merchandise Officer with your order - which should include your address and whether you want your books sent by airmail [extra £8.50 per item] or surface post [extra £5 per item] - and ask for a PayPal invoice PLEASE DO NOT JUST SEND MONEY BY PAYPAL. The p&p for UK orders is £2.50 per item, and we are also happy to take UK orders paid via PayPal.
Still available too is The Fine Companion - the story of The Pixie's caravan trip from Oxford to the Folk Dance Vacation School at Stratford upon Avon in the summer of 1914 - just as The Great War broke out.
