National bibliographies have been identified as a crucial resource for
historical research on the publishing landscape, but using them requires
addressing challenges of data quality, completeness, and
interpretation. We call this approach bibliographic data science.
In this article, we briefly assess the development of book formats and
the vernacularization process in early modern Europe. The work
undertaken paves the way for more extensive integration of library
catalogs to map the history of the book.
