small octavo, x, 181 pp. This is the sixth volume in the well-established and highly acclaimed series, which covers the history of libraries, librarianship and book collecting in Great Britain and Ireland from the earliest times to the present day. The entries are arranged under five main headings: Librarians, Librarianship, Libraries (with ten sub-headings such as National, Private, Public, Special, etc.), Reading and Study of Library History. Most of the entries contain a short summary of the work listed and there are extensive cross-references plus indexes of authors and subjects. Many significant contributions to the history of academic libraries are recorded in this volume, including those celebrating the quincentenary of the Bodleian Library. It adds another 698 references to the series, bringing the accumulated total to 4,620. In addition to librarians, this volume will be of interest to bibliographers, book collectors and social historians. Very fine. Bookseller Inventory # 17770
