History of Indexing: Indexing before ASAIB Peter Duncan Early Period Indexing as we know it now . Eighteenth century indexes This century saw the rise of professional indexers. From flock beds to professionalism. Hatfield, Hertfordshire: HKB Press.

History of Indexing: Indexing before ASAIB Peter Duncan Early Period Indexing as we know it now, starts with the idea that some method is needed to find information in a long text document, or many documents. In Indexers and Indexes in Fact and Fiction, she collects a host of examples of indices of literary works by authors such as Margaret Cook, Thomas Macaulay, and James Boswell, each entry revealing as much about the book or writer in question as about the age in which the indexer worked.

In his preface to the book, Professor David Crystal laments, "Indexing is an anonymous profession. An index may be praised or blamed, but rarely is the indexer named, lauded or shamed." This book, however, initiates a change. Hazel Bell presents here brief biographies of 65 individual practitioners, the makers of indexes, from the fifteenth to the twentieth century, considering their working methods, techniques, training, remuneration, their lives and their personalities.After the biographical section on the "Lone Workers,' Bell outlines in "Banding Together" the history of groups and societies of indexers up to 1995, the year she sees as entailing the end of print-only indexing. The book includes photographs of indexers and of their tokens of recognition. Indexed by the author.
