Vegan Society publications from before 1990

The following is a potentially incomplete list of book and pamphlet publications by the Vegan Society (United Kingdom). The list is probably quite complete (?).

Not included are:
  • (1) The Vegan, i.e., the Vegan Society's magazine. All older issues are freely available online on the Vegan Society's "issuu" page.
  • (2) leaflets
That is, the following is a list of books or very, very thin books ("pamphlets" but not in the sense of a pamphlet being a leaflet/flyer). As an ancillary effect you can also see how the Vegan Society changed house several times between 1944 (when the Vegan Society was founded) and 1988.

The list is in chronological (by year, descending) order. I don't know which publications were first within a given year.

Here we go:

1988

Title: Vegan nutrition : a survey of research
Authors: Gill Langley, Vegan Society
"This book brings together in a concise and carefully-researched manner all that is currently known about vegan (total vegetarian) nutrition. The text provides health professionals with a clear summary of research in the field. It provides prospective vegetarians, or practicing vegetarians with information that will enable them to follow a vegan diet with assurance concerning the short-term safety and long-term benefits of totally vegetarian diet."

Note: I'm not sure whether this was originally published in 1948 (it seems so) and whether there are two editions of this (one from 1948 and one from 1951) or just one. The British Library and the National Library of Scotland state that this booklet is from "[1948]" (in square brackets). The booklet does not seem to state the year of publication. The National Library of Medicine (USA) states that this booklet is from "1948?" (with a question mark).
