Since the appearance in 1908 of the first volume of BMC the work has been relied on as one of the main authorities on the earliest printing in Europe. Its coverage of early printing in the European countries into which the new technique was successively introduced provides not only extensive bibliographical descriptions, but introduces the material with an analysis of the development of printing in the relevant areas. The guiding theme throughout the earlier volumes is the spread of printing in the fifteenth century as reflected in the British Museum Library's outstanding collection.
