Subject: History of The Book

I am trying to find information on the development of what I call the
"navigational aids" that are now common in books. For example, when were
page numbers introduced? Is there any record of the first index ... or
concordance ?

Advice, counsel, or suggestions would be gratefully received!

May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
the rains fall soft upon your fields and,
until me meet again ...
may God hold you in the palm of his hand.
