Lang, A. (n.d.). Books and Bookmen. Retrieved from

Preface: The essays in this volume have, for the most part, already appeared in an American edition (Combes, New York, 1886). The Essays on ?Old French Title-Pages? and ?Lady Book-Lovers? take the place of ?Book Binding? and ?Bookmen at Rome;? ?Elzevirs? and ?Some Japanese Bogie- Books? are reprinted, with permission of Messrs. Cassell, from the Magazine of Art; ?Curiosities of Parish Registers? from the Guardian; ?Literary Forgeries? from the Contemporary Review; ?Lady Book-Lovers? from the Fortnightly Review; ?A Bookman?s Purgatory? and two of the pieces of verse from Longman?s Magazine?with the courteous permission of the various editors. All the chapters have been revised, and I have to thank Mr. H. Tedder for his kind care in reading the proof sheets, and Mr. Charles Elton, M.P., for a similar service to the Essay on ?Parish Registers.?
