A Bibliographical Companion by Roy Stokes
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


During even a cursory reading of the "literature about books," students of bibliography frequently have initial difficulties in understanding some of the terms they encounter. In A Bibliographical Companion, Roy Stokes provides an alphabetical list of such words and phrases. In this volume, the terms are defined briefly, their importance is discussed, and the author provides suggested readings designed to lead the student towards a more complete understanding. Aimed at students who are at an early stage of their bibliographical interests, A Bibliographical Companion is an invaluable resource.
