Publication of Quarterly Lists: Catalogues of Indian Books

(24 January 2017) The BL’s Two Centuries of Indian Print project is pleased to announce the online availability of some wonderful catalogues held by the British Library, generally known as the Quarterly Lists. They record books published quarterly and by province of British India between 1867 and 1947.

Digitised for the first time, the Quarterly Lists can now be accessed as searchable PDFs via the British Library’s datasets portal, data.bl.uk. Researchers will be able to examine rich bibliographic data about books published throughout India, including the names and address of printers and publishers, publication price and how many copies were sold.

The BL’s Digital Schlarship blog has the announcement in full.
