Introduction For a full listing of book history pages, see the key to the Exeter Working Papers on this site.

These pages update and extend the pages on book history formerly hosted on Devon Library Service's Local Studies web site. Please note that the older URLs starting www.devon.gov.uk are no longer operative, although they are still to be found in many web guides.

There is also a website under development on manhole covers.

The author is a retired local studies librarian who formerly worked for Guildhall Library, London (1968-76) and Devon Library Services (1977-2005). He has had a lifelong interest in book history, particularly the accumulation of biographical data. He has worked with projects such as the British Book Trade Index and has given papers at various book history conferences. He is currently researching the book trade personnel of Basse-Normandie during the Ancien Regime.
