of Cities and Towns. The names distinguished by an asterisk * and an obelisk † were taken from Dr. Adam Clarke's Bibliographical Miscellany, where they form two lists. The additional names were collected by myself.
In the towns marked * printing was carried on in the fifteenth century; and Dr. A. Clarke says — “In this List, great care has been taken not to omit one place where printing was carried on prior to the year 1500.” — “In this list, because the name refers to the work executed there, the genitive case has been retained. Panzer in his list has followed the same plan. This will be of some use to the mere English scholar, as he will at once see the same form of the word in its alphabetical order in this list, which he finds in the title of his book.”
In the towns marked † printing has been established and carried on since the fifteenth century, and Dr. A. Clarke observes — “This part might have been much enlarged, but it was not judged indispensably necessary. As the most difficult names are here explained, which usually occur in the titles of books, the residue it is hoped will occasion little embarrassment to any scholar.” — “It may be necessary to observe, for the information of the less experienced reader, that in this Supplement, as the Latin name stands in reference to no printed work, the nominative case has been always used.”
