OME books, like some trees, grow from a mere seed.
The first germ of this book was sown in the year 1886, and brought forth a tiny volume of 72 pages—an imperfect catalogue of Second-hand Book Dealers in the United Kingdom and nothing more; the second edition, appearing in 1888, rose to 174 pages; the third, in 1891, assumed an international character, and in the attempt to * put a girdle round about the earth,” grew to 376 pages ; the fourth, in 1894, exhibited further signs of development; and the present, the fifth of the series, with enlargements in all sections, has expanded to 420 pages. Beyond these salutary indications of growth in itself, this book has given birth to numerous offspring—works differing in some degree from the parent form—but bearing unmistakable evidence of their origin.
This edition of the Directory, in addition to the usual contents, supplies the names and addresses of firms dealing in NEW BOOKS a large increase of matter which has necessitated the use of rather smaller type in the first division of the work. The two classes of Booksellersdealers in NEW and in SECOND-HAND literature- —are clearly distinguished, so that in mailing announcements it will be a simple matter to address one br the other as desired.
Unusual pains have been taken to make the lists complete up to the moment of going to press. Proof slips for revision and correction have been posted to every town of importance in the United Kingdom and abroad, a safeguard which has delayed publication, but with the result of securing probably the most accurate register of bona fide dealers in books that has hitherto been published.
The Editor is indebted to MR. DANIEL HIPWELL for a careful and exchaustive Bibliography, which includes Works of Reference upon all subjects , Book-Plates ; Concordances ; Book and Library Catalogues ; and Trade Journals.
The alphabetical arrangement is followed throughout, either in the order of towns or of names of persons.
The Editor has received various suggestions tending on the whole to increase the practical value of the Directory. Some of these have been adopted, others, owing to considerations of space, could not be utilised in the present issue.
Thanks are due and are cordially tendered to those who have so kindly responded to enquiries, or volunteered valuable information.
