General Introduction to RELICS

The first line(s) of an entry identify a book by its original orthography. If, however, the information is within square brackets, it is wanting in the source or presented there in a non-Roman alphabet. Explanations are given in later Comments.

Information identifying the printer, publisher, their city, and date follows within parentheses, given in modern form. If the printer and the publisher differ, the printer is identified to the left of a diagonal (/), publisher to the right.

Information about physical details, comments, citations, and modern locations follow. An asterisk preceding a citation indicates that that source is an especially informative one. Unless otherwise stated, citations refer to catalog numbers assigned with in a modern source rather than to page numbers.

Within modern locations, information within parentheses may modify information about a particular copy. One asterisk indicates that we have seen the entry in the library's catalog in situ; two asterisks mean that we have examined that actual copy. The absence of an asterisk indicates that our information comes from secondary sources; you should be cautioned that those sources vary enormously in reliability and in depth of description. Other brief copy-specific information, such as the state of the copy's preservation, may also appear in parentheses. The abbreviation "mf" means microform reproduction. The final line(s) of a record show certain keywords and also the status of the record.

Please bear in mind that we only report what we have. For example, if we know that folios are lost or that a book is complete, we will say so; the absence of such information means that we do not know. We earnestly solicit your comments, suggestions, and supplementary information.
