This page is an attachment to Newspapers and journals online.

Bengal, Past and Present, Journal of the Calcutta Historical Society was first published 1907 and is a very valuable source of information.

There are published indexes, each of one volume, as follows: Volumes 1 (July 1907)-8 (June 1914); Volumes 9 (1914)-18 (1919); Volumes 1 (1907)-85 (1966); Volumes 1 (1907)-104 (1985). In addition, the British Library has an index for Volumes 19-29. Unfortunately, only the first of these appears to be available online.

Note that a different Journal, with a somewhat similar name, is the Calcutta Historical Journal, published by the University of Calcutta, first published July 1976,
