Robert Proctor will always be remembered among bibliographers for two things: for his rearrange¬ment of the incunabula in the British Museum in what has become known as ‘Proctor order’, based on the way in which printing spread in its early days; and for the mystery which continues to surround his death. Born in 1868, he was appointed to the British Museum in 1891, and in 1898 he published his Index to the Early Printed Books in the British Museum. In 1899 he started to keep a private diary, and this lasted until his death in 1903. One of the volumes is missing, but the remaining three are edited and published for the first time here.
