Second Issue


This directory was first issued in February 1997: it is intended to bring to the notice of those whose research touches on the history of the book the interests of others working in this area in Oxford. The presence of learned librarians and publishers as well as scholars and graduates, and the rich material resources available to students of the book, make Oxford a particularly propitious place to engage in this area of research.

This list contains the names of those who appeared in the first edition, as well as others who have responded to questionnaires. Anyone wishing to appear in a future issue should contact the compiler by post. If it is through his negligence that names have been omitted, he asks their possessors to forgive him.
