Copyright Notice


The first impression of the third edition of An Annotated Bibliography of Diaries Printed in English is now available to libraries and institutions on CDROM, in pdf format (the download edition is only available to individuals). This is the full text in facsimile and has the great advantage of being searchable (albeit slowly), thus eliminating the need for a subject index. An Institutional Copy of the CDROM differs from a personal copy only in that it may be installed on a network of any size, provided only that access is restricted to members of the institution in accordance with the copyright conditions given below.

The CDROM is priced at 30.00 including mailing costs world wide and will normally be despatched within three days of your order. In the first instance, please email your enquiry.
