STCV. Bibliography of the Hand Press Book

Jump to: navigation, search



The field 'edition' normally holds the information from the title page (source: title page) concerning the edition. In some cases, it can be useful to include external information, for example when something is up for discussion. This is no obligation, however.

The edition statement is always given in an English editorial formula. It always starts with a capital letter and ends without a full-stop.


Enlarged and corrected edition

Translated from the Spanish into Dutch

The order and lay-out of the title page is retained as much as possible. This is valid both for statements within one edition statement, as for the sequence of different edition statements. Per separate edition statement on the title page, and per source, a new 'edition' field is created.

Sometimes, edition statements on the title page are brought together in one long sentence. This is followed as much as possible, without overloading the grammatical structure. When necessary, you can choose to divide it over multiple fields.

If the title page, or elsewhere in the book, mentions the number of copies in the print run, this is placed in the edition field.

Example (Cf. STCV 3106495)
Edition: Fifth impression, in 1000 copies

Indications of price, however, are placed in a price-note and the description also receives the keyword t250 (Price quotation).

Example (Cf. STCV 6859552)

Ivdocvs Andries, Noodighe wetenschap tot de saligheyt

Voor de ghene dieder vier-en-twintgh, oft meer coope[n] by de[n] drucker, seve[n] oorte[n] het stuc. Den bandt van elck met marmer papier overtrocken, kost twee oorten.' (f. A8 recto)

Adapted or subsequent edition

The title page of a work often indicates whether it is a first, a new or a subsequent issue or edition. These statements are reproduced as they are presented on the title page, in the same order. These statements concern the history of the edition or issue, not the history of the work or contents. A 'first edition' can therefore contain text that were already published previously in a different form. This is often the case for collected works.

Information about translations is always included. This may be taken from the title page, the document or external sources (e.g. bibliographical references). As much as possible, this statement is reproduced the way it appears on the title page. External information can then be noted in additional edition fields.

Names of people or institutions given in the edition statement, are included in the author field where they receive a function that explains their relationship to the work (translator, editor, ...). They are not repeated in the edition field. If confusion can arise over the exact function (two translators, ...), the situation is explained in a general note.
