Manual of Bibliography: Being an Introduction to the Knowledge of Books, Library Management, and the Art of Cataloguing, With a List of ... Index of Ancient Printing Centres,
The following work is founded on a translation of Sig. G. Ottino's interesting little Manuale di Bibliografia, Milan, 1885. Numerous additions and alterations have been made in the body of the work, and the lists of abbreviations and books of reference entirely revised and enlarged. A list of printing centres, an enlarged glossary, and index have also been added. The illustrations are selected from M. Bouchot's well-known work The Book, published by Messrs. H. Grevel Co.
Although this manual makes no pretence to be a complete summary of the vast subject on which it treats, we feel confident that it will be found sufficiently comprehensive to be of great service and practical utility to book-lovers, and all others whose inclination or business leads them to make a study of Bibliography.
