Catalogo degli editori italiani [Directory of Italian publishers] / Associazione Italiana Editori. Con il rapporto ... sullo stato dell'editoria libraria in Italia / by Giuliano Vigini. - Milano : Editrice Bibliografica, 1994. - 25 cm.

1994 (1993). LI, 687 p. - ISBN 88-7075-355-7 : Lit. 75,000

This handbook of Italian publishing, produced by the Associazione Italiana Editori, consists of three parts: Part I contains articles about the state of Italian publishing (including a selected bibliography of new titles) and provides statistics on book production and sales in 1992-1993; Part II is a directory of 2,800 publishers arranged by name; Part III is a directory of distributors listed by company name. The information in Part II is solicited by questionnaire and is often incomplete. Some publisher names are given in a shortened form, and therefore, this work is not a definitive source for the official names of Italian publishing houses. [sh/ldb]
