'Highly recommended for all libraries and archives with general reference collections.' - Choice

'It would be difficult not to be impressed with the fourth edition of 'British Archives'. It is a measure of the success of the editors that each edition of 'British Archives' comes closer and closer to the comprehensiveness whcih they modestly disclaim.' - Raymond Refausse, Journal of the Society of Archivists
