Dawson, copies now available from Exeter Working Papers in British Book Trade History. It should be pointed out that an important pervasive error was caused by a fault in the computer typesetting program. The plus sign after certain dates was omitted throughout the book. This sign was used to indicate that a firm continued in business for an indefinite period after the last date checked, normally 1830. Its omission can be detected by the presence of an extra space between the date and any following punctuation. A similar error occurs with the equals sign, normally used in the combination ?=, meaning "possibly the same as". In the introduction a number of errors were not corrected after proof-reading.
