Book History Online
An international bibliography of the history of the printed book and Libraries - based on records from the Annual bibliography of the History of the Printed Book and Libraries this database now holds more than 33,000 items. The files can be searched by "names of authors, editors, title words (including periodicals), classification, geographical keywords, names of persons (printers, publishers etc.), firms and institutions, and by subjects and words in annotations." It is also well worthwhile using the Site Index. Book History Online (BHO) is designed and published by the Koninklijke Bibliotheek, National Library of the Netherlands, in co-operation with national committees from Libraries in other countries.
