Since the shocking news first broke in 1876 of the Seventh
Cavalry's disastrous defeat at the Little Big Horn, fascination
with the battle--and with Lieutenant George Armstrong Custer--has
never ceased. Widespread interest in the subject has spawned a vast
outpouring of literature, which only increases with time. This
two-volume bibliography of Custer literature is the first to be
published in some twenty-five years and the most complete ever

"The well-illustrated volume (over 750 illustrations, including some previously unpublished catalog material from the Corning archives) provides a history of the Corning glass industry from 1868 to the present. The contribution to American glass of Corning has been significant. (This book) is a careful and well-merited record of that achievement". -- The Antiques Journal
"(Recommended by) Metropolitan Museum of Art curator Alice Cooney Frelinghuysen.... A classic consulted by curators everywhere". -- House Beautiful
"A treasure hunter's find.... The authors provide exhaustive detail in relating the history of Coming during the period which led to its reputation as the Crystal City". -- New York Pennsylvania Collector
Invaluable for the collector, curator, and dealer alike, this classic edition brings to the field of glass collecting a rich store-house of detailed information of unpublished original catalog material from the Corning archives, including long-lost pattern identification.
A priceless aid to anyone trying to identify pieces of cut or engraved glass, the book is an in-depth account of Corning's history -- including craftsmen and technique -- and its unparalleled prestige as the country's largest producer of cut glass at the turn of the century. This book has been updated to reflect the present-day locations (museum or private residences) where the pieces are currently displayed. The Afterword describes the Corning Glass works and its activities of the last twenty years.
This immense book, by a noted bibliographer of the West, is beyond question the fairest, most complete and most learned evaluation of printed references to western outlaws to appear until now....It will stand for many years, solid as a rock amid the flooding maelstrom of western myth and legend, pointing up the truth about those men of the past who lived by their wits and their guns. It will be impossible for anyone studying that era and such men to do so without reference to this volume."" - Los Angeles Times""Adams turns again to the books and histories of the western gunmen and outlaws and critically examines 425 titles, most of which rate as 'burs' under his saddle. Ramon Adams' plea is that the writers must stop compounding each other's errors into legend. In this book, with great skill and without malice, he has pointed out past mistakes. His book should be in the essential baggage of every writer on western outlaws and on every library shelf."" - American West ""The value of this book to writers and historians of the badman tradition cannot be overestimated, for Adams has replaced rumors, myths, and falsehoods with documented historical facts. It is a book for all conscientious students of and writers on the American West; henceforth, any writer of 'authentic Western history' who refuses to check with Adams should be, as the judge said to Billy the Kid in one legend, 'hanged by the neck until dead, dead, dead.'"" - Southwest Review
The College of Corpus Christi, Oxford, was a 'Renaissance' institution both as to its foundation date (1517) and the intention of its founder, Richard Fox, bishop of Winchester. Both Fox himself and his choice as the College's first President, John Claymond, were friends of Erasmus, who approved of the foundation and especially of its library. Fox intended his foundation to be a conduit of Italian humanism to Oxford and to the English clergy. In its extraordinary variety, this collection is a challenge to the cataloguer. Some manuscripts relate to the programme of the College's founder and first President, but most of the manuscripts reflect the particular interests of collectors from the late sixteenth century onwards. John Dee's books for example, mostly small, unpretentious and often fragmentary or made up of fragments, constitute a gold-mine for the historian of medieval chemistry and alchemy. These are supplemented by an important group of astronomical, arithmetical and medical texts. There is a substantial clutch of twelfth- and thirteenth-century manuscripts from Lanthony Priory. Noteworthy, too, is the large number of manuscripts in several vernaculars: Old and Middle English and French, Old Irish, Catalan, and even a few words of fifteenth-century Czech. The bindings of the Corpus manuscripts have been wholly neglected. Many books retain important medieval bindings, some as early as the twelfth century, and a substantial number of beautiful blind-stamped bindings of the late fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. A special place in the collection is occupied by the approximately 1, 200 manuscript fragments, taken from bindings of books in the library in the late nineteenth century.
Islamic banking and economics (IBE) is a fast-growing subject of vital interest in both East and West as Muslims change their attitudes towards investments and find ways to invest their funds according to the Islamic faith. Along with the rapid developments in Islamic banking there has been a concomitant increase in the quantity of relevant IBE material generated. Since IBE is a highly specialized cross-disciplinary field involving economics, business, marketing, religion, philosophy and culture, it is difficult for researchers to locate and obtain information without having to go through several secondary sources such as indexing and abstracting services. In this electronic age, it is essential for researchers to be aware of the various forms of information available for consultation. Yet, until now, the few previous works on IBE information sources have been limited to the coverage of materials available during the early 1980s, before the most recent period of expansion, and in addition the materials cited were often unpublished and therefore unobtainable. In answer to a long-felt need, "Information Sources on Islamic Banking and Economics" provides a detailed bibliography of IBE sources concentrating on the period 1980-1990 with some data from 1991 and 1992, and with the additional unique feature of setting out, for the first time, the information infrastructure of the IBE discipline. A comprehensive author index and a keyword subject index for important terms are provided, and only published - and therefore easily obtainable - items have been included. This book is essential reading for all researchers, economists, bankers and others who need information on the increasingly important field of Islamic banking and economics, and related areas.
First published in 1988, this reissue is an important work in the field of national literary exchange. Declared by American Library Association in its Choice publication one of the ten best reference works of 1988, the volume has survived global change - politically, socially, economically, religiously, aesthetically - to promote cultural dialogue between China and the West. Besides the scores of annotated sources, the introductory essays remain as authentic and moving as the day of their appearance.
Equally to be observed is accelerating demand, especially in academic institutions, for global cultural exchange through national literatures. How can we of the English-speaking world, for example, adequately understand and converse with our Chinese counterparts without some appreciation of their culture, notably of Confucian and Taoist roles in their history as reflected in their literature?
Overall, a pioneering work whose reissue will be welcomed by both scholars and general readers alike.
The fifty-ninth volume of "Studies in Bibliography" continues its tradition of presenting a wide range of articles by international scholars on bibliography, textual criticism, and other aspects of the study of books.
This volume opens with an excerpt from a forthcoming memoir by the eminent bibliographical and textual scholar G. Thomas Tanselle. Articles range in topic from the Middle Ages to the twentieth century and from manuscript production to the distribution of books by American bookstores. In a tour de force of bibliographical analysis, one piece examines the implications of inked pages that leave their images on adjacent leaves, and another provides new insights into the vexed question of the canon of Daniel Defoe. An advertisement for an early piracy of writings by Mark Twain and Bret Harte provides a springboard for a deeply contextual essay that demonstrates the complex interrelationships of the world of publishing and authorship, while another article on nineteenth-century books brings to light rare bindings issued by a major English publisher.
Among the articles and their authors are:
"Extracts from The Living Room: A Memoir," G. Thomas Tanselle, John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation; "Merton College, MS 68: Production and Texts," Ralph Hanna, Keble College, Oxford; "Beyond Furbank and Owens: A New Consideration of the Evidence for the 'Defoe' Canon," Ashley Marshall, University of Nevada, Reno; "Offset Evidence in Edward Young's The Centaur Not Fabulous," James E. May, Penn State University, DuBois; "Mark Twain and Bret Harte: A Mysterious Early Piracy in Context," Richard Bucci, Mark Twain Project; "Wilkie Collins in Smith, Elder Boards 1865-66," Geoffrey Hargreaves; "Directories of American Bookstores to 1950: Addenda & Corrigenda," Michael Winship, University of Texas at Austin.

The Cambridge History of Libraries in Britain and Ireland describes the development of libraries in Great Britain and Ireland over some 1500 years, and their role as a part of the social, intellectual and cultural history. In addition to obvious links with the history of books and literature, the volumes include consideration of education, technology, social philosophy, architecture and the arts, as they have affected libraries. The significant international dimension, which has affected British and Irish libraries from the Middle Ages to the present, receives due attention. Other themes considered in each volume include the housing, storage and maintenance of books and other material; the individuals responsible for their care and those who used them; developments in provision, organization and cataloguing; and the principles and attitudes - of librarians and users - which such developments reflect.
Fully revised and expanded second edition of the only chart book dedicated to British Hit EPs. Originally conceived as sort-of 'mini LP', the four-track extended play album or 'EP' achieved mass popularity in the late 1950s and early 1960s, later enjoying a revival during the punk/new wave era of the mid-1970s. Attractively packaged in glossy colour sleeves and often containing rare material, EPs also rapidly acquired a following among discerning music fans and record collectors that continues to the present day. Includes a history of the format, an artist-by-artist listing of every 7-inch hit EP from 1955 to 1989 (with full track details for each record), a trivia section, the official UK EP charts week by week, and much more. Profusely illustrated with over 600 sleeve shots.
A comprehensive bibliography and exhibition chronology of the
world's greatest museum of the decorative arts and design. The
Victoria and Albert Museum, or South Kensington Museum as it used
to be known, was founded by the British Government in 1852, out of
the proceeds from the Great Exhibition of 1851. Like the
Exhibition, it aimed to improve the expertise of designers, and the
taste of the public, by exposing them to examples of good design
from all countries and periods.
The second of four volumes in this extensive reference work dedicated to rock'n'roll's most influential guitarist and composer, Chuck Berry. It contains details of bootlegs; radio albums; movies; TV shows; video and DVD releases; international tour itineraries; hits, achievements and awards; Berry's songs, roots, and influence on other artists; tributes; Chuck Berry in print; fan clubs and websites; plus annotated discographies of pianist Johnnie Johnson (post-Berry) and the ultimate Berry copyist, Eddy Clearwater.
A catalogue of the soft-scale insects of the world (Homoptera: Coccoidea: Cocidae) with data on geographical distribution, host plants, biology and economic importance. This catalogue lists 162 genera comprising 1090 species and subspecies which have been described since Linnaeus (1758) until the cutoff date of December 1991. Extensive data are presented on taxonomy, nomenclature, synonyms, geographical distribution, host plants, biology, and economic importance of the species. New combinations are established for 40 species. One species, namely Filippia subterranea Gomez-Menor Ortega, is newly synonymized with Lecanopsis formicarum Newstead.
The fifty-eighth volume of Studies continues its tradition of presenting a wide range of articles by international scholars on bibliography, textual criticism, and other aspects of the study of books. The volume begins with an essay examining an issue fundamental to all scholarly editing, the relationship between thoughts and the tangible records of those thoughts in physical documents. Three articles address the role of intermediaries between writers and readers: the contribution of one of the best-known medieval scribes to the texts he was copying, the use of speech prefixes in the plays of Shakespeare as a guide to the source from which the editions were set in type, and the phenomenon of basing printed editions of early English plays on shorthand transcriptions of actual performances. A related piece identifies directories of American bookstores in order to cast light on the insufficiently known process by which books moved from publishers to readers from the mid-nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century. Other articles present a little-known set of regulations governing the conduct of workers in an English printing house around 1700 and trace the nineteenth-century development of a great Dante collection. The volume also includes another magisterial study of early book jackets by G. Thomas Tanselle, this time extending the examination into their florescence in the 1890s. The articles and their authors are: ""Mind and Textual Matter,"" Richard Bucci, Mark Twain Project; ""Scribal Intentions in Medieval Romance: A Case Study of Robert Thornton,"" John Ivor Carlson, Yale University; ""Compositor B's Speech-prefixes in the First Folio of Shakespeare and the Question of Copy for 2 Henry IV,"" S. W. Reid, Kent State University; ""Memorial Transmission, Shorthand, and John of Bordeaux."" Gerald E. Downs; ""The Bagford Chapel Rules: An Unknown Set of English Printing House Regulations from the Late 1600s or Early 1700s."" Alan D. Boehm, Middle Tennessee State University; ""'The Tragedy of the Book Industry'? Bookstores and Book Distribution in the United States to 1950,"" Michael Winship, University of Texas; ""Collecting Dante from Tuscany: The Formation of the Fiske Dante Collection at Cornell University,"" Christian Dupont, Independent Scholar; and, ""Book Jackets of the 1890s,"" G. Thomas Tanselle, John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation.
