This chapter does not set out to give all the information necessary to conduct research into Ottaviano Petrucci's printing. It is intended merely to meet two needs: to supply the data that will allow readers to use the bibliography and the prose chapters, in other words, to illustrate the arguments made there; and to supply sufficient data for researchers in libraries to be able to identify the material before them. Because these needs have been seen as paramount, as they should be for all bibliographical writing, many details are omitted here. There is no analysis, for example, of exactly which letters in the fonts of text type exist in ligatures; nor are measurements given for the chain-lines of the papers, or indeed for all the marks themselves.

Keywords:   Ottaviano Petrucci, printing, letters, fonts, text, marks, ligatures
