Dug into this volume to (re)read D.F. McKenzie's "Printers of the Mind," and ended up sticking around to read the rest of the contents too. McKenzie's article was a bombshell to the bibliographical community when it appeared, and it remains controversial more than forty years on. It is a useful and powerful corrective to some analytical techniques then in common usage, and even though imperfect, remains a very important cornerstone article.

Other interesting pieces to note from this volume: G. Thomas Tanselle reports on the usefulness and accessibility of copyright records for bibliography; Philip Gaskell explores the development of type cases, and T.H. Howard-Hill offers a fascinating look at early computerization and its uses in creating literary concordances. Patrica Hernlund's article on William Strahan's ledgers and what they have to say about C18 charging practices for paper was a truly interesting analysis of the topic. ( )
