"The principal feature of this issue, STC bookplates, appears here at the inspiration of Anthony Payne, of Bernard Quaritch Ltd, who drew my attention to the bookplate entries in the STC and the usefulness of having a consolidated corrected checklist with any new additions. .A consolidated checklist has other virtues too. The bookplates [in STC ] can fairly be said to comprise the incunabla of the British bookplate, for the STC included all forms of printed marks of ownership - bookplates, book labels, and book-stamps, whether engraved or letterpress - and therefore is the sole complete, subject to new discoveries, record of British bookplates to 1640. The thoroughness of the search for entries and the expert evaluation of their probable dating against the entire record of printing and engraving for the period lends an unrivalled authority to the quality of the list, for which there is no equal in the world of bookplates. The entries under "Bookplates".in STC. Have been integrated into a single list and all corrections and additions interpolated. . We have adhered to the form of entry in the STC, adding to the annotations chiefly biographical data and location information when available. The abbreviated form of STC entry is redressed by the larger number of illustrations. These have been obtained from the files of and through the courtesy of John Blatcbly, Brian North Lee, Dr K. F. Pantzer, Bernard Quaritch Ltd, Dr J. S. G. Simmons,' and the countless individuals and institutions who assisted their researches. Brian North Lee has generously allowed us to adapt materials from his own volume Early Printed Book Labels. A catalogue of dated personal labels and gift labels printed in Britain to the year 1760 (1976) for the annotations, and we have drawn on a number of other sources as well." Fine.
