Summary and Info
Since the publication of "Biblioteca Historica de la Filologia" by Cipriano Munoz y Manzano, our knowledge of the history of the study of the Spanish language has grown considerably. It has been the purpose of BICRES I (from the beginnings to 1600) published in 1994, to bring already available information together with more recent research findings, scattered in many places, books and articles published during the 19th century. Now, the second volume, covering 1601 to 1700, has been published, according to the same principles as the first one. Years of work in the libraries of Spain and other European countries have gone into this bibliography, in order to offer as exhaustive as possible a description of all Spanish grammars and dictionaries, histories of the Spanish language as well as studies devoted to particular facets of its evolution in the 17th century. BICRES II brings together in chronological order close to 1300 titles. Access to the bibliographical information is facilitated by several detailed indexes, such as author index, short title index, index of places of production, index of printers and publishers, and an index of locations of the books described.
