The Library is happy to announce the first of its annual ‘Virtual Issues’. Each will comprise a retrospective gathering of key articles in a particular field that have appeared in the pages of The Library since the journal’s first appearance. These will be chosen by a guest editor, who will also supply an editorial reflecting on the field, its history, and its prospects, here and beyond. This virtual issue is available, free of charge to any interested reader, through the journal’s page at OUP:

The articles will remain freely available for three months, but the editorial permanently. 

Our first issue is ‘The Library on Incunabula’. To mark the occasion of his retirement from the British Library, where he was Head of Incunabula and Early Western Printed Collections, the guest editor of this Virtual Issue is John Goldfinch.
