Book Description Published by the author, London, first edition, 1956, 1956. Cloth, 8vo,19 cm,  pp. From the preface : "An attempt has been made in this book to list and define concisely a wide selection of names, words, expressions and abbreviations commonly encountered in the world of books. A single-volume work of this kind should be found useful by the librarian, bibliographer, bookseller, publisher, journalist, pressman, student and common reader. The entries range from definitions of classical and modern literary terms to renderings of the Latinized names of towns appearing on the title pages of early books; from the terminology of the ancient manuscript writer to abbreviations now current in publishing and bookselling. Also included is a selection of terms employed in rhetoric, logic, biblical study, the graphic arts and librarianship. The most valuable authorities consulted are the great Oxford Dictionary of Sir James Murray; Chambers' Twentieth Century English and Mansion's French Dictionaries; The Typographical Gazetteer by Henry Cotton; and Percival Vivian's miniature Dictionary of Literary Terms. Many other works of reference have also yielded information or confirmation." Covers slightly rubbed, otherwise Good. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-35367
