Index : A brief history

«Known from antiquity and used sporadically throughout the Middle Ages, it was not until the Renaissance and its appearance in print that the index was made a permanent feature of the book. After its first tentative appearance in print in 1467, it reappeared sporadically until its more widespread adoption in the sixteenth century. Today, the index remains an indispensable tool for readers, students and scholars alike.»
