Imprint

 

basic data concerning a publication, intended to provide information to readers as well as for library and bibliographic processing, and the accounting and planning of publishing output.

General bibliographical imprints (the author’s last name, the title, name of the publishing house, place and year of publication, and so forth) are placed on the binding, the cover, and the title page. Publisher’s registration imprints are printed most frequently on the lower part of the last page of the book and more rarely, on the reverse of the title page. These provide the last names of people who have taken part in creating the book and are responsible for its quality (the editor in chief, the literary, art, and technical editors, the proofreaders, and the graphic designer). Also included in the publisher’s registration imprint are the dates when the copy was sent for typesetting and printing, quantitative data about the publication (size of the paper, the number of printed and registered published pages, and the circulation), as well as the order number, price, and names and addresses of the publishing house and the printing plant.
