's A History of the Cambridge University Press by S. C. Roberts PDF

As might be inferred from the title-page, this publication has been written to mark the 4 hundredth anniversary of Cambridge printing.
Of the unique experts utilized in its compilation the main beneficial has been the massive selection of files in terms of the click that are preserved within the Registry of the collage. entry to this assortment has enabled me to glean a few clean details about the careers of the collage printers and a chain of debts and vouchers from 1697 to 1742 has dropped at gentle a number of new titles of books published at Cambridge in the course of that period.
The making of this publication, although, should not have been possible, within the constrained time at my disposal, had I now not been unfastened to exploit the paintings of the pioneers, from Christopher Wordsworth and Henry Bradshaw onwards, and the manager goods of this paintings are recorded within the brief bibliography on web page xiii.
In addition, my own responsibilities are many: Mr Francis Jenkinson, college Librarian, Mr Charles Sayle, Mr A. T. Bartholomew, and lots of different participants of the Library employees have helped me ungrudgingly, either in placing their very own distinct wisdom at my command and in guiding me to the right kind experts; the Registrary (Dr J. N. Keynes) and his employees have equally given me prepared entry to the records of their cost; Mr J. B. Peace, college Printer, supplied me with the image which serves as frontispiece and with the revised plan of the click constructions; Mr G. J. grey corrected a number of of my statements in evidence and gave me the advantage of his personal most modern researches into the profession of John Siberch sooner than they have been released; to many different pals (including my colleagues within the numerous departments of the clicking) i'm indebted for goods of recommendation and aid too many to be enumerated.
I have additionally to thank the grasp of Trinity collage for depart to breed the portrait of Bentley; Messrs Bowes and Bowes for the blocks used on pp. 6 and 14; and the Cambridge Antiquarian Society for depart to use the papers on Cambridge printing released of their Proceedings.
Those who're acquainted with of Cambridge Books and the Biographical Notes on Cambridge Printers will savor the degree of my debt to the paintings of the overdue Robert Bowes. whilst, in 1913, I despatched him a replica of article at the college Press, he wrote:
I am via it carried again to my friendly paintings of 25 to 30 years in the past, and i'm very pleased in my 78th yr to determine more youthful males attention-grabbing themselves within the subject.
Time has robbed me of the excitement of delivering him a piece which owes a lot to his research.
Finally, it's going to be acknowledged that the ebook makes an attempt to track the overall historical past of Cambridge printing and never to go into into the finer issues of bibliographical procedure. equally, purely the briefest cartoon is given of the expansion of Cambridge publishing within the final 50 years; to do extra will be to pass the border-line among heritage and commercial. In Appendix II i've got carried at the paintings started by means of Mr Jenkinson for one more a hundred years. The checklist of books, notwithstanding it could possibly declare a few new titles, makes no pretension to finality; it is very a starting-point for the professed bibliographer.
