Summary
  • This handbook surveys the different kinds of ownership evidence to be found in books and brings together a wide range of information and bibliographical references to provenance research. Features of this text include: a list of mottoes used by owners in the 16th and 17th centuries; details of donors' registers for historic libraries; a survey of published and unpublished provenance indexes for libraries in Britain and North America; a list of major bookplate collections; and notes on collections of booksellers' catalogues (particularly of the 18th and 19th centuries which have no existing bibliography)
  • "At a time when more and more people are looking at the ways in which books have been owned, read and used in the past, this handbook offers a compendium of information on the ways of recognising and identifying marks of ownership, and on placing that knowledge in a wider context. This reissued version includes a new introductory section with additional references to update the original text."--BOOK JACKET
