This is the first part of a two-part essay on the collection and identification of early English printed fragments, and on how they have contributed to printing history and the establishment of literary texts. Part I treats the chronology of their preservation, as artefacts, from John Bagford in the late seventeenth century to the ‘new bibliographers’ of the early twentieth century, with special attention to Joseph Ames, ‘Honest Tom’ Martin, Sir John Fenn, Francis Douce, Philip Bliss, J. O. Halliwell-Phillipps, Henry Bradshaw, E. Gordon Duff, and Robert Proctor, and to the bibliographical techniques created and refined by the study of such membra disiecta.
