Reprint of the first edition published in Birmingham during the period 1875-1894. The Stationers' Company has in its possession copyright registers from 1554 to 1842; this book contains the entries up to 1640. The Stationers' Company, which was founded in the fifteenth century to protect and regulate the London book trade, contains Court Book registers, records of the English Stock Company, and pension and apprentice register books, as well as "Entry Books of Copies." The Entry Books are of especial interest to scholars, since they record the names of authors and titles of books presented to the Company for printing.
