Reprint of the 1961 first edition published by the Bibliographical Society of America (Besterman 5196). This useful bibliography is a tool for use in conjunction with Evans, American Bibliography. Bristol has provided an index of printers, publishers, and booksellers to help navigate Evans when author-title information is not clear, or not properly transcribed. Bristol suggests that Evans made many attributions of author, publisher, and place of publication which have been found to be poor hunches. The index is an attempt to correct some of these errors. Names of printers and publishers are brought together under place, with no attempt to establish relationships or to differentiate between the individuals of the same name. Bristol was involved in updating Evans even further through supplements and indexes intended to make the information provided in Evans more accurate and accessible.
