Example text

94 Of the 291 Italian books listed in my bibliography, 228 were held at the British Library and I have used its collection as the basis of my work. I have also examined all the source texts in the catalogue that are held at the British Library. Copies held at the Libraries of Oxford University and the Folger Shakespeare Library were also checked personally. I have cited shelf marks for accuracy as well as for readers’ convenience. Through the investigation I came to feel that our technology has not developed yet to the stage where it supersedes actual books because of the occasional occurrence of interpolated matter.

STATIONERS’ REGISTER: Arber’s transcripts have been used. While Scott makes cursory references to the registers of the Stationers’ Company from time to time, I have cited systematically all entries in the registers. 12. CONTENTS: the contents of the book are given in brief with signature references. Some books are given full details. Priority is given to serviceability rather than consistency. As for the spellings, I tried to copy the text as faithfully as possible, but they are not quasi-facsimile.

17. 68 John Clerke, Opusculum plane divinum de mortuorum resurrectione et extremo iuditio, in quatuor linguis succincte conscriptum. Latyne. Englysshe. Italian. Frenche (London: John Herford, 1545), (STC 5408). 69 See p. 33. 70 Chronological divisions are often arbitrary and artificial, and this is especially the case in surveying cultural evolution. To avoid the danger of missing some significant aspects of publication activities of Italian books, I refer here to some of the books published immediately prior and posterior to this period.
