Bibliographical Information in Manuscript Collections.
The recording of the manuscript sources for the history of printing, publishing and bookselling is recognized as being important to anyone interested in bibliographical studies. The author recommends that printers', publishers' and booksellers' letter books, ledgers, and other documents relating to the book trade, be culled and referred to in bibliographical work. The need for such an index is strengthened by the fact that references that do exist are scattered, selective and partial in some instances, and are frequently imperfectly documented. The author discusses such existing references and notes that there is a wealth of material not yet properly indexed. (Author/SJ)
