One of the ways in which a bibliographic catalogue makes a collection accessible is through its indexes, in particular of printers and publishers, arranged by name and by town, with dates of publications. These show at a glance a conspectus of production, family and business connections and peregrinations, and associate many items which would not be connected so easily by other means. Such information cannot easily be extracted from the online catalogue (if at all), and the Library's STC remains an essential volume in the bibliographer's armoury. ¶ Short tears in dust jacket; otherwise an excellent copy.Short-title catalogue of books printed in the German-speaking countries and of German books printed in other countries from 1501 to 1600 now in the British Library.
