Editorial With the appearance of the first number of the 25th volume, we have a few changes to report concerning our departments and their editors. In the autumn of the past year, Prof. Dr E. Braches asked for health reasons to be released from his duties as editor for the category 'Modern Printing'. We had no choice but to accept this request, however reluctantly. Ernst Braches has served Quzerendo as an editor since the beginning of 1984. We owe him much thanks for this, and for the contributions from his own hand which we have been able to publish regularly. We and many others hope that we will still be able to call on him for his broad knowledge of the field. The managing editors decided to fill the resulting vacancy together with the editorship 'History of libraries and the book trade', a post left open since the untimely death of Prof. Dr Bert van Selm in 1991. After consultation with authorities in the fields concerned, we have introdu- ced the following editorial categories: 'Seventeenth- and eighteenth-century history of the book trade', 'Nineteenth- and twentieth-century history of the book trade', and 'Nineteenth- and twentieth-century typography'. As editors for these three categories effective i january 1995, we are very pleased to welcome into our midst, Prof. Dr Paul Hoftijzer, Prof. Dr Ludo Simons, and Prof. Gerard Unger. Paul Hoftijzer teaches at the Thomas Brown Institute at Leiden University, and is Tiele Professor of the History of publishing and the book trade at Amsterdam University. Ludo Simons is Professor of Bibliography and library science in the Universities of Louvain and Antwerp, and chief librarian of the Central Library of the UFSIA in Antwerp. Gerard Unger is Professor of Type design and typography at the Department of Typography and Graphic Communication of the University of Reading, England, and teaches typography at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. In this way, the editors hope to be able to offer a greater variety of articles in the fields covered.
