Archival history

The papers relating to the preparation and publication of An Introduction to Bibliography (mainly letters from the Clarendon Press) appear to have been kept separate from comments on the published work (see Add. MS a. 355/4), and that division has been reflected in the current arrangement. Most, if not all, of the items in the present series were probably once in the envelope Add. MS a. 355/3/41, which is labelled ‘Correspondence concerning Bibl. for Students & Specimen Pages’.
