Cataloging rules for rare books, that is, printed textual monographs receiving special treatment within a repository. Thoroughly revised and expanded from its predecessor (Descriptive Cataloging of Rare Books, 2nd edition, 1991), includes 19th- and 20th-century books. Introductory sections on objectives and principles and precataloging decisions, to help with local decisions about the level of detail to provide; an appendix of scanned images of early letters and symbols accompanied by their correct transcriptions; and new appendixes on collection-level cataloging, core-level cataloging, variations requiring the creation of a new bibliographic record, and individual issues of serials.
