The main bibliography (excluding the index) was originally published in 7 volumes from 1923 to 1945 and revised for the present edition.
The Spanish bookseller and bibliographer Antonio Palau y Dulcet (1867-1954), did extensive research and included books from various sources, including booksellers' and library catalogues. It includes all basic information regarding a work, and in special cases Palau added an explanatory comment, sometimes including prices. It contains a total of 381,897 numbered works.
Another Addenda & corrigenda was published in 1990 and is not included the present set (as usual). In very good condition, wholly untrimmed and almost completely unopened.
