Metuchen, New Jersey: The Scarecrow Press, Inc., 1974. 8vo, viii, 240pp. Original green buckram stamped in gilt to backstrip; illustrated in black and white by means of facsimiles within the text. Fine. First edition. The Great Bibliographers Series, No. 1, from The Scarecrow Press. Includes historical notes on Elizabethan printing, as well as an index. As Oak Knoll states, “As the bibliography at the end of this book demonstrates, the selection is small relative to the great quantity of articles and reviews that exist. McKerrow is best remembered as the father of 20th-century descriptive bibliography. His best known work, An Introduction to Literary Bibliography for Students (published by Oak Knoll), is still a standard textbook in the United States and in the United Kingdom. Besides Introduction, his other major accomplishments include his definitive edition of the works of Thomas Nashe in five volumes (1904-1910), which still serves as an example of how the works of an Elizabethan author should be edited.” A highly informative volume on a most influential bibliographer.
