First edition. According to the Preface, during the first 200 years of printing, many works of British authors were printed abroad as well as in the British Isles. However, it may be lesser known that many works of British writers were printed abroad without being printed in the British Isles. Shaaber thus explains this book as a compilation which describes the many editions of continental printings of works that have survived in only a few copies in scattered libraries. This work is an appropriate complement to such volumes as the Short-Title Catalogue and should facilitate various kinds of study of British culture up to the middle of the 17th century.
