Operating alongside 'The Ernest Bell Memorial Library.' Republishing classic humanitarian books & pamphlets. The Humanitarian League has been established to enforce the principle that it is iniquitous to inflict avoidable suffering on any sentient being. This principle the League will apply and emphasize in those cases where it appears to be most flagrantly overlooked, and will protest not only against the cruelties inflicted by men on men, in the name of law, authority, and conventional usage but also, in accordance with the same sentiment of humanity against the wanton ill-treatment of the lower animals. NOTE: please help us update the address!

'Ernest Bell Memorial Library'

This is a project of myself & a team of vegan friends.

We have big goals.

We are working to make the books & other items easily accessible once again!

The Ernest Bell Library

In 1934 Henry S. Salt originally suggested the establishment of the Ernest Bell Library as a fitting memorial to him. In this Library the literature of vegetarianism and all the other humanitarian movements in which Mr. Bell was so deeply interested would be collected and made available.

The Ernest Bell Library’s primary objectives are to:

1) Collect all of Ernest Bell’s book & non-book works and make them easily accessible to everyone.

2) Collect the literature of vegetarianism and all the other humanitarian movements in which Ernest. Bell was so deeply involved.

3) Assist students and scholars in their research.

4) Introduce, very briefly, all aspects of Ernest Bell’s life, including his writings, campaign work, influences and his circle of friends.

5) To undertake our own research into missing aspects of Ernest Bell’s life and work.

It is time for the library to go online.

There are currently more than 1,500 (as of Jan 2014) items in the library & archives.

We already have more than 200 pieces of Ernest Bell’s own writings.

Additional items are being continuously added.

We are inviting wider collaboration – please contact us to discuss - humanitarianleague(at)outlook(dot)com

We are launching crowd-funding projects to allow us to acquire additional items & to systematically reprint items.
