Britain's most famous society, the Fabian Society, was founded in 1884 to advance socialism by democratic means. Among its notable members were George Bernard Shaw, Sidney and Beatrice Webb, H. G. Wells, G.D.H. Cole and Graham Wallas.

It was put on the map by the Fabian Essays, edited by George Bernard Shaw in 1889. It rapidly became instrumental in a host of social changes that helped create modern Britain.

This collection brings together the minutes, correspondence, records, committee papers and more of the Fabian Society as well as adjunct groups such as the Fabian Women's Group, the Society for Socialist Inquiry and Propaganda, and the New Fabian Research Bureau, ranging from 1884 to 1964.
