9780197217894: A Short-Title Catalogue of Books Printed in England, Scotland, and Ireland, and of English Books Printed Abroad, 1475-1640: Volume I: A-H (The Bibliographic Society)

In 1926 the Bibliographical Society published the first edition of A Short-Title Catalogue of Books Printed in England, Scotland and Ireland and of English Books Printed Abroad 1475-1640. Now universally known as 'STC', it has become indispensable to historians, literary scholars, and bibligraphers, whose work involves printed sources before the Civil War.

The second part of this edition was the first to be published in 1976: volume I covering A-H now completes the main text; it will be followed by a third volume, containing the addenda that ten years of use have already produced, detailed indexes of printing and booksellers, with dates and places of business, concordance with other lists and catalogues, and other supplementary material.

About the Author:

Katharine F. Pantzer is Bibliographer at the Houghton Library, Harvard College Library, Harvard University

Review:


Praise for individual volumes: "The importance of the original edition cannot be overestimated, but the revision is a monumental, awe-inspiring work....The humanity, the intelligence, and the love that obviously inspired such a work shine forth on every page."--American Reference Books Annual


"Since 1948, when the formal revision of STC began...every grateful scholar called upon to comment has said--cheerfully, peaceably, guardedly or blindly--that the work on the revision was "exemplary." And so it really is."--Times Literary Supplement
