Society for the Promotion of Christian Knowledge, The (organization)


This charity, founded to promote Christianity at home and abroad in 1698, has long had and still has a substantial publishing arm. CMY planned to get it to publish a series of county histories (3, 5 November 1860). Unlike many of her friends, she did not write for it. Its archives are held in Cambridge University Library.
