about

Included in this topical bibliography are 1,060 citations of books, theses, articles, and library, exhibit, and sales catalogs in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, and other languages. Topics include reference works, printers' manuals, machinery and materials, printers' marks, and a general history of book printing. Special attention is given to the printing of books in mathematics, medicine, music, religion, and science. Three separate sections cover Hebrew printing, maps, and forgery and fictitious imprints. Additional annotations for certain entries provide information on editions, special features, and other sources of information. Two classified checklists, supplementing the main bibliography, contain a selection of articles on writing, calligraphy, and typography. An author index includes authors, editors, revisers, and writers of annotations and introductions. A subject index provides access to information on the titles and annotations. Cross references facilitate the use of the indexes.
