First published by Princeton University Press in 1949, this reprint with the introduction by G. Thomas Tanselle was published in 1994 by St. Paul's Bibliographies. Reprinted by Oak Knoll Press and The Bibliographichal Society of the University of Virginia in 2023, this indisputable classic of 20th-century scholarship is one of the standard guides on the subject of bibliography, providing a comprehensive manual for the description of printed books as physical objects. Although there has been much activity in the area of descriptive bibliography since, Bowers' work still holds its place as the central book to which those engaged in bibliographical work continually return.
