Prelims and end-pages. Cambridge [Eng.] University Press, (OCoLC) Online version: Burbidge, P.G. (Peter George). Prelims and end-pages. Cambridge [Eng.] University Press, (OCoLC) Document Type: Book: All Authors / Contributors: P G Burbidge. There is a set order for the pages at the beginning of a book (known in the business as 'prelims') and you will need to send them to us with the rest of the manuscript for the designer to work on. Here we provide detailed instructions for preparing your prelim pages, according to standard publishing practice. Home» End pages. End pages Make sure your glossary is noted in the prelims at the beginning of the book, or your readers may only discover it when they have finished reading the book. Promotion. List other works by the writer, their organisation or the publisher if you feel it is appropriate. If you discount the preliminary and end pages, that leaves 27 pages of text, and those pages are more pictures than text. The pictures aren't all that outstanding, either! This book really should be marketed to children. Yes, the description says ages 6 and up, but the "up" does not apply to adults/5(6).

  The length of a book in pages, including the printing terms, the extent equals the whole number of signatures to be printed (i.e. including any blank pages at the end of the last signature).. This definition is extracted (and expanded on) from the book Getting Published: A Companion for the Humanities and Social Sciences by Gerald Jackson and Marie Lenstrup.   As an artist, a lover of books, and a long time ‘Nerdfighter’ I was over the moon excited back in February of when Hank Green asked if I would come up with a meaningful design for the end pages in his debut novel ‘An Absolutely Remarkable Thing’ which has since been released (on September 25th ) and debuted at #1 on the NYT best seller list!Author: Jason Markow.   Prologue—In a work of fiction, the Prologue sets the scene for the story and is told in the voice of a character from the book, not the author’s voice.. Second Half Title—If the frontmatter is particularly extensive, a second half title identical to the first, can be added before the beginning of the page following is usually blank but may contain an illustration or an epigraph. 4 Preliminary pages. Introduces the topic of prelims and provides tips on what to look out for when copyediting them. 5 End matter. Provide a good grounding in editing and preparing end matter, which is not dealt with in great detail in books about editing. 6 Final assignment.

  Glossary: The glossary is a list of term definitions used throughout the book that might be unfamiliar to the reader. Bibliography: Most often seen in non-fiction like a biography or an academic text, a bibliography lists the references and sources used in researching or reporting the book. Index: An index is an optional but highly desirable element for non-fiction works. International Draughts and Checkers by Fraser, Professor W J Mitchell Ellis, and Fraser, the book is illustrated throughout with diagrams, game plans. Prelims, end-pages, and page-edges lightly foxed. World Championship between Tom Wiswell and Professor fraser are annotated by the players and by Dr Tinsley. The book includes a short. Preliminary pages are normally numbered using roman numerals; the title page would not normally feature a number at all. The first page of Main text should start on page number 1. But it is not uncommon for books to start the title page at number 1. Here again each book should be judged on its own merits. The endpapers or end-papers of a book (also known as endsheets) are the pages that consist of a double-size sheet folded, with one half pasted against an inside cover (the pastedown), and the other serving as the first free page (the free endpaper or flyleaf).Thus, the front endpapers precede the title page and the text, whereas the back endpapers follow the text.
