Book Owners Online

Book Owners Online is authored by the book historian David Pearson, published by the UCL Centre for Editing Lives and Letters (CELL), and generously funded by the Bibliographical Society, the Marc Fitch Fund, and the Board of Electors to the James PR Lyell Readership in Bibliography at the University of Oxford's Bodleian Library.
