Acknowledgments One of the pleasures in preparing this catalogue has been in getting to know Mr. Beinecke. He is a man who built a collection because he wanted to learn something and who read the books he collected. He was able to provide insights, and, when we thought we had finished, brought us an important manuscript which we had not previously seen. Mr. Beinecke's willingness to delegate, and his support of the enterprise, made our task possible. At Hamilton College we had a friendly reception and were greatly helped, first by Robert Paquette, associate professor of history, who coordinated the project.
