A dictionary of members of the Dublin book trade, 1550-1800, based on the records of the Guild of St Luke the Evangelist Dublin
London, Bibliographical Society, 2000
(25.5 cm), xlviii, 675 pp., illustrations. Publisher’s cloth binding. - “Supplants the seventy-year-old directory of McClintock Dix and provides the first full account of the working life of all known members of the Dublin booktrade before 1800. Guild records are supported by an astonishing evidential sweep that includes city directories, newspaper advertisements, customer records, disparate letters and accounts, and the imprints themselves” (from a review by James Raven, in The Times Literary Supplement, 28 December 2001, p.30). ¶ Fine, unmarked copy.
