The Bookman's Glossary. Fifth Edition.
Peters, Jean, Ed.
A classic reference work, this glossary provides a practical guide to the terminology used in the production and distribution of books--not necessarily the technical language of the trade, but rather the words in common usage in a bookstore, in a publisher's office, in a library, or among book collectors. In this revised edition, printing terminology has been broadened to include the area of computer typesetting. The scope of proper names has been enlarged to cover not only those of historic importance to the graphic arts, but those who have made a significant contribution to book publishing. The section on foreign book trade terms has been ommitted, since it is covered by other reference tools. Appendixes provide selected reading lists on books, book collecting, and publishing, and a table of proofreader's marks. (Author/SL)
