Show synopsis Few reference tools have proved as useful to scholars, librarians, and students of the seventeenth century -- as well as to antiquarian booksellers and book collectors -- as Donald Wing's Short-Title Catalogue (known universally as Wing). The first three volumes contain over 100,000 entries, covering all known materials printed in English between 1641 and 1700 except serials. The fourth volume contains two much-needed indexes. The first lists publishers, printers, and booksellers named on the title pages of books listed in the catalogue and includes chronological subheadings by year of publication. The second index lists books printed outside London from 1641 through 1700 chronologically by year of publication and includes subheadings for place of printing.
