Run of issues from the inception through volume 24. (volume 9 missing) Printed for the Oxford Bibliographic Society, Bodleian Library. Each volume is by a different scholar. Many issues concentrate on formulating a complete bibliography or checklist while others contain a single essay with illustrations. Also included are facsimiles and catalogues of printers' ornaments. Each publication focuses on a distinct subject; topics include rare bindings, early printers, catalogues of works about individual authors or poets, bookbinders and sellers. Though this collection encompasses a broad range of topics, as a whole, it encompasses a number of aspects of the printing industry from early printers through the nineteenth century. A few spines sunned.
Volume 20, a facsimile of the Term Catalogue for the Michelmas Term 1695, comprised almost entirely of fold out plates.
