Historical Watchtower Publications

Recent publications appear on the Watchtower's official site at wol.jw.org.

The most comprehensive site to download historical publications is AvoidJW.org. Older Watchtower publications have also been scanned and made available on the "Internet Archive" at archive.org.

Modern day Bible Students value the writings of Russell and still distribute Studies in the Scriptures and pre-1916 Watch Towers. Scans of these works appear at mostholyfaith.com and strictlygenteel.co.uk.

For hard copies, second hand books can be purchased occasionally on ebay.com. Some Kingdom Halls and Bethel Branches still carry copies of old publications. A lot of my research was done in the library of the Parramatta congregation, which carried many of the original Watchtower publications.

An update to the URL protocol has broken many of the links, so you may need to search for the book title at archive.org.
