Copyright page

The back side of the title page (i.e. page iv of the prelims), also commonly called the imprint page or title verso (and sometimes misleadingly referred to as the colophon page). Crucially, this page carries the copyright notice, ISBN, place of publication, date of first publication (and of the edition in hand), and publisher details plus (ideally) the CIP data. This page can become very crowded because it may also give fuller details like the publisher’s address, originating publisher (if any), typesetter and main typefaces used, edition/printing history, printer and place printed, paper used (and statement if this is recycled or acid-free), and a credit line (for a cover illustration, subvention, etc.).

This definition is extracted (and expanded on) from the book Getting Published: A Companion for the Humanities and Social Sciences by Gerald Jackson and Marie Lenstrup. It was first referred to in the blog Getting Published in a post on the requirements and costs of self-publication.
