This is an important reference book for public libraries, school and college libraries -- an exceedingly useful and competent survey of books, their production and distribution, from the Colonial Days to the present. There is a vast amount of sound fact, a good deal that stimulates the imagination. Perhaps there was no place for a more dramatic handling of the material, but one can see where this might have been made livelier reading. However, it is a serious study, done in collaboration with Ruth Shepard Granniss and Lawrence C. Wroth -- a work that was needed. - Kirkus Review

In a departure from the earlier practice of having a single lecturer for the A. W. S. Fellowship in Bibliography series, three distinguished bibliographers were invited, each of whom was identified with a distinct and significant field. The three fields selected, namely fifteenth-century printed books, English literature to the close of the seventeenth century, and early Americana, all present specific problems that have occupied scholars and collectors alike, both in this country and abroad, for a long time, yet without the emergence of satisfactory solutions or agreed standards
