Summary

Summary

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.
