Appendix 1

[Note: figures provided below give {the total number of volumes borrowed/the number of occasions on which volumes were borrowed} and the total number of volumes borrowed divided by the number of volumes. References are to Hallenbeck, ‘Bibliography of Works in the Foregoing Transcript’, and the four standard bibliographies of prose fiction in the eighteenth century: William Harlin McBurney, A Check List of English Prose Fiction 1700–1739 (Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 1960); Jerry C. Beasley, A Check List of Prose Fiction Published in England, 1740–1749 (Charlottesville, VA: University Press of Virginia, 1972); James Raven, British Fiction, 1750–1770: A Chronological Check-List of Prose Fiction Printed in Britain and Ireland (Newark, DE: University of Delaware Press, 1987) [hereafter ‘Raven 1’]; James Raven and Antonia Forster, with Stephen Bending, The English Novel 1770–99: A Bibliographical Survey of Prose Fiction Published in the British Isles (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2000) [hereafter ‘Raven 2’]. ESTC numbers (from http://estc.bl.uk/) supplement the three oldest references (McBurney, Beasley and Raven 1).]
