About this item
Since the publication of the still very valuable Biblioteca histórica de la filología by Cipriano Muñoz y Manzano, conde de la Viñaza (Madrid, 1893), 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 early beginnings to 1600), to bring together already available bibliographical information with the more recent research findings, scattered in many places, books and articles. BICRES II covered the 1601–1700 period, BICRES III the period 1701–1800, and BICRES IV the years from 1801 to 1860. Now, the fifth volume, arranged according to the same principles as those guiding the preceding volumes, has become available, covering the years from 1861 to 1899. BICRES V brings together in chronological order 5,272 titles. Access to the bibliographical information is facilitated by several detailed indexes, such as a short title index, a listing of printers, publishers and places of production, and an author index.Years of research in the major libraries of Spain and other European countries have gone into this new bibliography and relative sources of the Americas have also been covered, in order to offer – in an as exhaustive as possible fashion – a description of all Spanish grammars and dictionaries, histories of the Spanish language as well as studies devoted to particular facets during the years 1861–1899.
