Summary
  • "This reference book contains over 450 alphabetical entries ranging in length from a single line to several pages. Each entry consists of a definition and analysis of the technical terms of book collecting and bibliography, interspersed with comments on such subjects as auctions, facsimiles, fakes and pirated editions. It should be a valuable book for any collector baffled by the technical language of an auction catalogue, or a bookseller wanting to widen his or her knowledge of these bibliographical terms."--Provided by publisher.
