title page

In the usual case the recto of the second leaf of a book, displaying the full title, the sub-title (if any), and usually the name of the author, the edition, the publisher and date of publication (sometimes the date is printed on the verso of the same leaf). The verso may also give particulars of the edition, i.e., the printer (and perhaps his address), the binder, specifications of type and paper, registration of copyright, as well as (in the United States) the Library of Congress card number, ISBN number, and >CIP information.
