This is high praise when the author says in his preface, This Index contains about one hundred thousand entries, while the numerals employed, which closely approach a million, almost defy counting. Among the great advantages of the Index may be mentioned the promptitude with which the reader may now find and compare the relative value of any book during the decade covered (bringing to a point the various copies sold), enabling him to ascertain whether its value has increased or dimished during the period... The Second Index is so superior to the former one that the permanent value of B.P.C. as a bibliographers guide is increased fourfold. This index is one of the largest ever compiled, and it represents three years work.The Library Association Record says: - These volume are indispensable to every reference library, and add considerably to the reputation of English Bibliography.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
