Harry Manville and BNJ and NC Offprints – Hugh Pagan

The present note explains the treatment of offprints in the late Harry Manville’s Numismatic Guide to British and Irish Printed Books 1600-2004;  points out the difference between offprints that are repaginated and offprints which are simply bound from original printed sheets; identifies the point in time when the change from one type of offprint to the other was respectively made for BNJ and for NC; and makes some further observations about the utility of offprints and the number likely to have been printed of any given offprint of an article published in the major numismatic periodicals.
