"Date 1/beginning date of publication" -- pls see 
<http://www.loc.gov/marc/umb/um07to10.html#part10> -- for books (rather 
than serials, which can also have an "ending date of publication") this 
date is most often the same as 260$c (for a full discussion of 260$c and 
260$g, see <http://www.loc.gov/marc/bibliographic/bd260.html>.)
