Index to Factotum I-XL


This index cumulates those previously published for Factotum Nos. 1-30 with the addition of entries for numbers 31-40 and the six Occasional Publications published by Factotum since 1982. It follows the principles adopted by C.W. Hind in his index to Nos. 1-20 where only names of authors, persons and institutions and significant subjects are indexed. Titles of books and illustrations are not indexed. Generally authors are not indexed if they only produced notes, and help wanted notes are only indexed if they gather together and contribute information.

Factotum is published by the British Library, Humanities and Social Sciences, Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3DG.
