As the written output of European culture has continued to expand and diversify, the need to establish controls of the materials has also increased. The listing, description and analysis of texts, whether in manuscript or print, have engaged a long series of individuals in what can only be described as a heroic struggle. These individuals are the subject of the essays in this book, which reveal that all those researching the byways of book trade history, from the library cataloguers of medieval times to the dedicated scholar-librarians and historians of the recent past, can truly be said to have been "pioneers in bibliography.".
