Publication date

From LISWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The year in which a book was published, usually printed at the foot, or on the verso, of the title page. In older books, the publication date was often part of the colophon. In periodicals, the publication date may include the day and month, or just the month or period (spring, summer, fall, or winter), as well as the year in which the periodical was issued.
