Written by the world's leading bibliography and book history researchers, this companion is an authoritative and highly informative reference book for an international audience in a wide range of disciplines. This unique two-volume work consists of two parts. Part I is an informative series of introductory essays — over forty essays offer a general history of the subject, as well as reviews of books from all over the world, including the Muslim world, Asia, Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa. The second part of the companion includes the section AZ, which contains more than 5000 articles on every aspect of this extremely rich and diverse subject, from brief definitions and biographical records to more detailed descriptions. Both parts of the text are richly illustrated with reproductions, diagrams, maps and examples of various typographical functions. After the opening of the original box, the book does not return !!!!!
