These papers illustrate a variety of ways in which bibliographical evidence can be used to determine significant features in a diverse range of manuscripts and printed books. The title Order and Connexionrelates to two of the most important aspects of bibliography, to the fore in this collection: the bringing of coherence to the sequence of manifestations of a text or a body of similar texts, and the establishing of connections which texts have with the circumstances of their creation, publication, dissemination, reception, reputation, influence, and survival.
