Book Description Wm. Dawson & Sons Ltd., Folkestone, first edition, 1976-77, 1976. 2 vols, cloth, 4to, 26 cm, [ii], 176 + [iv], 318, [ii] pp. From the preface: "The publication in 1926 of Pollard and Redgraveís Short-title Catalogue of Books printed in England 1475-1640, followed, in 1945-51, by that of Wingís Short-title Catalogue of Books printed in England. . . 1641-1700, may justly be said to have marked an epoch in English bibliography. Between them, these two catalogues charted what had previously been a largely unexplored sea. For the textual scholar they provided a conspectus of the early editions and issues of his chosen text, for the literary historian a vast mass of mainly unknown and hitherto uncollated printed material on all subjects, and for the learned world generally an invaluable aid to the identification and location of books known or believed to have been printed in early times. As finding tools, however, both these catalogues suffered to some extent from the disadvantage of having no title-index. Yet the desirability of such an index becomes apparent when we consider the needs of a wide spectrum of potential users: the historian, for example, trying to reconstruct the contents of a seventeenth-century library from lists and auction catalogues in which books are cited by title alone (a common practice); the scholar in any field wanting to follow up an insufficient early footnote reference; the librarian or book-collector attempting to identify an imperfect copy of a book in which the leaf bearing the authorís name is missing; or the non-specialist who has heard of a title but does not know the authorís name. The difficulty here lies in the fact that both Pollard and Wing are basically designed as author-catalogues. If a book to be identified was published without the authorís name, pseudonym or initials, there is no great problem: an entry for it will be found under the appropriate heading taken from the title. Similarly, if it belongs to one of certain clearly defined subject categories (e.g. Almanacs, Bible, Liturgies) or is an official document (e.g. Laws, Proclamations), it is comparatively easy to find. But if it was published under the name, pseudonym or initials of the author, and does not come within one of these two classes, the researcher who has only the title to go by is helpless: he has the frustration of knowing that the book he is trying to identify is probably to be found somewhere among the many thousands of entries in Pollard or Wing but that he has no key with which to find it. It is with this problem in mind that the title-index (complete in two volumes) has been devised. The policy has been to exclude anonymous books and books coming under official and class headings though cross-references are given for certain subheadings within these categories). With these Exceptions, the two volumes list alphabetically the short-titles (and many sub-titles) of English books wherever printed, and of foreign books printed in England, to the end of the seventeenth century, giving the name of the author, the pseudonym or the initials under which they will be found in Pollard or Wing. Volume 1 of the index covers the period 1475 to 1640 (Pollard); volume 2 covers the period 1641-1700 (Wing). Thus the two volumes provide a key to the printed material of the period, no matter how slight in bulk or ephemeral in nature, provided that it was published separately, or as the first item in a collection, and that copies can now be traced or, at least, have been seen in recent times. Volume 1 includes many titles which have been added in the new edition of Pollard; volume 2 includes some published and unpublished additions to the original edition of Wing." Spine of Volume I a little sunned, otherwise a Good set. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-28085
