                         WHICH RELATE TO BOOKS


                            BY JOSEPH SABIN

      Author of "A Dictionary of Books relating to America," etc.

          "A souldier without arms may be valiant, but not
          victorious; an artizan without his instruments may
          be skillful but not famous; ... To aim at learning
          without bookes is with Danaides, to draw water in a
          sieve." --R. WILLIAMS, 1630.

This _brochure_ owes its existence to Mr. Power's _Handy Book about
Books_, a large portion of which was reproduced in the American
_Bibliopolist_. An examination of so much as Mr. Power had done on the
subject of bibliography, led me to the conclusion that he had not made
a personal examination of the books described, and that the eminent
individuals, whom he thanks as having rendered him valuable assistance,
must have had rather limited bibliographical resources; indeed, the
general result was so disappointing that I determined to endeavor an
improvement, and the result is the present list which is about four
times the extent of Mr. Power's, and includes all the titles quoted
by him, some of which we should have preferred to omit. Still it is
not a complete bibliography, for the most excellent reason that such a
work is beyond any one man's capacity; but it is hoped it will prove
useful to those librarians and general readers who desire information
concerning books about books.

Those who seek further information on the subject may consult with
much advantage Petzholdt's _Bibliotheca Bibliographica_, which is
conspicuous for the faithful and painstaking care exhibited in its
compilation, and in which the titles are treated with that minute
attention to classification which is preëminently the characteristic of
the German mind, while our list is conspicuous for the absence of any
attempt at such a classification.

I cannot close this brief notice without tendering my thanks to
Mr. Charles A. Cutter of the Boston Athenæum for his valuable aid.
When librarians in general can approach his standard of library
intelligence, there will cease to be that plentiful lack of knowledge
by which some of them are now distinguished.

     American names."--_Guild's Librarian's Manual._ It is difficult to
     believe that Mr. Guild really knew what he was writing about when
     he penned this note. The work is _not_ bibliographical in a proper
     sense, and in the matter of biography it is confined mainly to New
     England clergymen. It might be omitted from this list without loss.

 vols., folio.                             _Matriti: J. Ibarræ._ 1783-8.

     "An excellent edition, the _Bibliotheca Vetus_ being enriched with
     notes by Perez Bayer, a learned Valencian, the _Bibliotheca Nova_
     receiving additions from Antonio's own manuscripts, that bring down
     his notices of Spanish writers to the time of his death in 1684. In
     the earlier portion, embracing the names of about 1,300 authors,
     little remains to be desired. The latter portion contains notices
     of nearly 8,000 writers--it is a monument of industry, firmness,
     and fidelity. The two, taken together, constitute their author
     beyond all reasonable question, the father and founder of the
     literary history of his country."--TICKNOR, I. 218. Further details
     concerning this will be found in Dibdin's _Bibliomania_ and Sabin's
     _Dictionary_, Vol. I. 226-227. There are copies on large paper.

     the most important work for the literature of New Spain that has
     ever been composed. It comprises 3,687 biographies, and although
     like most Spanish works of the kind, singularly uncritical, yet
     it is a perfect treasure as regards the cultivation of science
     and literature in Mexico and the adjacent countries. The work
     is extremely scarce, and appears to be altogether unknown in
     Europe."--LUDEWIG. See also [Harrisse] _Bib. Am. Vet._, pp. xx,

 Pamphlets, State Papers, &c., upon the Subject of North and South
 America. With an Introductory Discourse on the Present State of
 Literature in those Countries. [By H. Homer.] 4to.      _London._ 1789.

     This book, which has been variously ascribed to Dalrymple, Homer,
     Long, and with more probability, by Homer himself, to Reid, was
     the fullest English work on the subject up to its date; but
     its complicated arrangements, errors of date, unintelligible
     abbreviations, and frequent repetitions mar its utility. Some of
     the remarks in the introduction are curious, if not true. The
     errata, if all printed, would fill a dozen pages. See _M. Rev._,

                      _Paris: Treuttel et Würtz, et à Strasbourg._ 1808.

     In the matter of dates and titles very incorrect, but valuable for
     the extracts it contains from the voyages of the last century. Vol.
     VI. relates to America. Dibdin pronounces it "an indispensable
     performance," in which judgment we do not agree.

 BOULARD (S.) Traité Élémentaire de Bibliographie.... 8vo, pp. (4), 140.

     No more published. "The conclusion, showing the present state of
     the Protestant religion in Maryland," etc., occupies pp. 125-130.
     The author states that the object of this bibliographical treatise
     was to give those who went to Virginia, Maryland, and the American

 BRIDGMAN (R. W.) A Short View of Legal Bibliography, containing some
 Critical Observations on the Authority of the Reporters and other

     Though this work is of an early date it will be found of interest
     to the law student. It has the advantage of two good indexes, one
     of authors, and the other a classified list of subjects.

 printed]. Folio.                                        _London._ 1841.

     It is scarcely necessary to remark that, practically, there is
     no printed catalogue of the library of the British Museum, and
     apparently there never will be. The manuscript catalogue fills a
     room about 30 feet square.

 BRÜGGEMANN (L. W.) A View of the English Editions, Translations, and
 Illustrations of the Greek and Latin Authors. With Remarks, By Lewis

     This is an entirely new edition of this invaluable bibliographical
     work, very much enlarged and improved, and elegantly printed on
     fine paper. "On the whole, the most useful and instructive work we
     possess in this branch of bibliography (_restricted_)."--EBERT:
     Preface to the English edition of _Allgem. Bib. p. v._ Fifty copies
     printed on large paper. It is probably the only bibliographical
     work which reached a fifth edition during its author's lifetime.

     Only seventy-five copies printed. But the sets having been issued
     at different places, it is probable that not over fifty were made
     complete. "Whoever is desirous to collect a library of various and
     solid erudition, will find very useful aid in the Res Literariæ."

 BRYDGES. Restituta; or, Titles, Extracts, and Characters of Old Books,

     Mr. White, in his Prefatory Note, says: The following desultory
     dissertation on books, book-collecting, and book-collectors,
     cannot fail to be welcome, for it is always interesting, often
     serviceable, and sometimes amusing information.

     This work must ever be highly valued as affording the only complete
     index to the rich repertory of Arabian Manuscripts in the Escurial,
     and for the ample evidence which it exhibits of the science and
     mental culture of the Spanish Arabs. Gibbon remarks: "The execution
     of this work does honour to the Spanish press. The MSS., to the
     number of 1851, are judiciously classified by the Editor, and his
     copious extracts throw some light on the Mahommedan literature and
     history of Spain."

     "A _sine qua non_ with collectors; but in this country it begins

     The reader may admit which simile he pleases, or reject both!
     but in sober earnestness it is very rare and unconscionably
     dear."--DIBDIN. _Per contra_, it usually sells very cheap. One copy
     was printed on large paper.

     "Addenda and Corrigenda" which are prefixed to the first volume of
     that edition are placed in their proper positions. The "Index,"
     also, is greatly enlarged. This valuable and interesting work is,
     in fact, an extended edition of the author's catalogue of the Duke
     of Bridgewater's library. It describes books which, for the most
     part, are so scarce, that but few American libraries possess them;
     and Mr. Collier has performed an acceptable office in quoting
     largely from the works he has described.

     us as we proceed, and we find increased occasion to admire the tact
     and skill with which the compiler contrives to furnish the student
     with the materials for judging of the degree in which any of the
     books here registered may be useful to him."--_Kitto's Journal._

     First edition, very rare. An admirable translation of this

     considerable information, even at this our advanced state of
     civilization. Those who come in from a walk on a cold winter's day
     are here cautioned to use a kerchief ere they presume to look at a
     rare book, and also to avoid having books opened during meals.

     Of this edition eighteen copies only were printed on large paper.

 DIBDIN. Bibliomania; or Book-Madness; A Bibliographical Romance.
 Illustrated with Cuts. By Thomas Frognall Dibdin, D.D. New and Improved
 Edition ... including a Key to the assumed characters in the Drama.
 Medium 8vo.                            _London: H. G. Bohn._ MDCCCXLII.

     This edition was undertaken by Mr. Walmsly. It contains a key
     to the characters, etc., and a supplement, edited by Dr. Dibdin
     himself. The copies on large paper, imp. 8vo, have titles-pages for
     two volumes.

     "The _Bibliomania_ is written in dialogues or conversations,
     the characters introduced are well-known book collectors of the
     author's acquaintance. The great value of the work is in the notes,
     which abound with anecdotes of books and book collectors, and an
     account of the rarer articles in their collections, and the prices
     at which they were sold, extracted from the sale catalogues. It
     will be always consulted as an authority."--LOWNDES.

     "The _Bibliomania_ is evidently formed in the first instance on the
     plan of honest Isaac Walton's _Complete Angler_; with conspicuous
     marks of the author's being deeply versed in the _Battle of the
     Books_, and a familiar acquaintance with old English literature,
     and occasionally with the discussions of Yorick. Under the shape
     of dramatic dialogue, the reader is equally entertained, and
     instructed; the abstruser parts, with the historic details, being
     thrown into the form of notes. It would now be useless to pass an
     encomium on this work, as its merits are so fully established as
     to have more than doubled the original price of a volume now with
     difficulty to be obtained."--_Gent's. Magazine._

     "You have contrived to strew flowers over a path which, in other
     hands, would have proved a very dull one; and all Bibliomanes must
     remember you long, as he who first united their antiquarian details
     with good-humored raillery and cheerfulness."--SIR WALTER SCOTT TO
     DR. DIBDIN.

 DIBDIN. Book Rarities; or a Descriptive Catalogue of some of the
 most Curious, Rare, and Valuable Books of Early Date; Chiefly in the

                              _London: Printed by W. Bulmer & Co._ 1811.

     Very rare; thirty-six copies only printed, not published. "The

     Very rare; fifty copies only privately printed, not published, the
     greater part of which were destroyed by the author. "There is no
     title-page to this effusion from the pen of Dr. Dibdin."--MARTIN.

 DIBDIN. Bibliotheca Spenceriana; or a Descriptive Catalogue of the
 Books printed in the Fifteenth Century, and of many Valuable First
 Editions, in the Library of George John Earl Spencer, K.G., etc.,
 etc., etc. By the Reverend Thomas Frognall Dibdin. 4 vols., imp. 8vo.
                              _London: Printed for the Author._ 1814-15.

     Fifty copies were printed on large paper. "This catalogue contains
     only the works printed in the fifteenth century and the Editiones
     Principes. It is compiled with the greatest care and industry, and
     those who have had occasion to consult its pages, can testify to
     its accuracy and great utility. It is the finest private collection
     in Europe; the catalogue will ever be regarded as of the first
     importance to the theologian, the historian, and the critic, and as
     a perfect model for the bibliographer."--LOWNDES.

 DIBDIN. The Bibliographical Decameron; or, Ten Days Pleasant Discourse
 upon Illuminated Manuscripts, and Subjects connected with Early
 Engravings, Typography, and Bibliography. By the Rev. T. F. Dibdin. 3
 vols., rl. 8vo.                 _London: Printed for the Author._ 1817.

     Also on large paper, 3 vols., imp. 8vo. "This work may be
     considered as a continuation of the _Bibliomania_, the same
     characters being introduced in the dialogues. From the information
     which it contains, and the splendor of the decorations and
     printing, it will ever be considered as a model of excellence and
     good taste in typography and the arts."

 DIBDIN. Ædes Althorpianæ; or an Account of the Mansion, Books, and
 Pictures, at Althorp; the Residence of George John Earl Spencer, K.G.
 To which is added a Supplement to the Bibliotheca Spenceriana. By the

                                         _London: Payne and Foss._ 1822.

     _See_ the author's _Reminiscences_, II. 557-94, for the interesting
     account of the publication of this work, where it appears that
     the cost of engraving the portraits was upwards of £2,000. It was
     designed as a supplement to the _Bibliotheca Spenceriana_, and
     contains accounts of the ancestors of Earl Spencer; of the Mansion
     at Althorp; of the gallery, with engravings of the most important
     pictures; and of editions of the Scriptures, Aldine editions, and
     books printed in the fifteenth century, not contained in the former

                                 _London: Printed for the Author._ 1821.

     Also on large paper, 3 vols., imp. 8vo. "This work contains much
     curious information respecting the MSS. and rare works in public
     and private libraries abroad. It is printed and embellished in the
     same style of excellence as the Doctor's other works."--LOWNDES.

     "A work calculated to have as intoxicating an effect on the
     imagination of literary antiquaries, as the adventures of the
     heroes of the Round Table on all true knights, or the tales
     of the early American voyagers on the ardent spirits of their
     age. It has not passed, however, without some hostile (though
     unfounded) remarks from the printers, binders, and librarians of

 DIBDIN. A Bibliographical Antiquarian and Picturesque Tour in France
 and Germany. By the Reverend Thomas Frognall Dibdin, D.D. The Second
 Edition. 3 vols., 8vo, pp. (4), xliii, (2), 421, Portraits, Plates;
 (4), iv, 428; (4), iv, 481.                _London: R. Jennings._ 1829.

     This edition omits some of the plates contained in the first, but
     has others which are not in that. It is esteemed for its preface,
     28 pp., in which the author summarily disposes of Crapelet,
     Licquet, and Lesné.

     Only one hundred copies printed; the notes and preface, which
     contain so much that is "silly" and "scurrilous," drew from Dr.
     Dibdin the following reply, _A Roland for an Oliver_.

     It is very curious, consisting of a number of proof-sheets of the
     Foreign Bibliographical Tour, with numerous alterations, remarks,
     &c., &c. These sheets are called First Thoughts, became the text in
     the published work varies considerably from these sheets.

     Also on large paper, imp. 8vo. From an anecdote recorded at page
     394 of this edition, concerning "certain buckskins," in the edition
     of 1823, and which is omitted in the subsequent ones, that acquired
     the title of the "Breeches Edition."

     "It contains much curious and important bibliographical information
     not elsewhere to be found, and will at all times be consulted,
     as a work of reference, by the bibliographer, biographer, and

     Books."--page 6. Some copies have a Key to the names of the various
     characters mentioned in the work.

     Also on large paper, in 3 vols., imp. 8vo. In this work the author
     concluded his tours. It it an essential companion to the tour in
     France and Germany; and, as it describes some collections that have
     ceased to exist, possesses an historical interest.

     One hundred copies printed on large paper. "The nicknacks of
     literature collected in Mr. Disraeli's cabinet were selected from
     sources not generally accessible to ordinary readers. These volumes
     are not only admirably adapted to minister to the amusement of
     the lounger and refined trifler, but they have higher capacities,
     as curious and authentic pictures of the manners of ruder times,
     and records of the progress of letters from their rise in the
     dark middle ages, to almost the present era." There is a French
     translation by T. P. Bertin, 2 vols., 8vo. _Paris._ 1810.

     The edition, "augmentée par Barbeau de la Bruyère et Drouet."
     _Paris: Tilliard._ 1768. 10 vols., 12mo, is considered the best.

     criticisms are given. There is also a list of works on Asia, under
     different heads.

     A few copies printed on large paper. Contains numerous engravings
     from early MSS., facsimiles of types, bookbinding etc. This
     important work was in preparation thirteen years. Neither France
     nor Germany can boast of a work treating the subjects with a
     similar comprehensiveness, and in England the work has certainly
     had no predecessor. "Of the industry bestowed upon this extensive
     compilation, and of the marvellous condensation of fact it
     supplies, it is difficult to speak in terms of proper commendation;
     even to the most accomplished bibliographer it cannot rail to be
     of great service, but how much more so to the tyro, or ordinary
     bibliographer."--BROWNSON'S _Review_.

             editioni ejusdem Bibliothecae destinatâ. Anno Domini_ 1755.

     Of this rare and valuable work Vol I. only was published. It
     contains the most authentic notes on the literature and literary
     men of Mexico, and became the basis of Beristain's celebrated
     _Bibl. Hisp. Amer._, which appeared sixty years later. Eguiara was
     one of the most talented members of the Academy of Mexico. "It is
     unfortunate that no more of this important work was published. It
     is probable that not many copies were printed of this volume, as
     it is not often met with."--RICH, 1. 115. The remainder of the
     manuscript was said to be preserved in the Library of the Cathedral
     of Mexico. Leclerc's collation seems to differ from ours. "Ouvrage
     curieux, mais dont il n'a paru que le premier volume."--BRUNET.

     works, may be considered the chief, if not the only one of its
     kind. The author's notes are judicious and valuable, and have an

     volumes in 1743, and two more in 1744. The last volume is not,
     properly, a part of the work, though issued under the same name.
     The books were not sold by auction, and the prices were not

 [HARRISSE (Henry).] Bibliotheca Americana Vetustissima A Description
 of Works relating to America published between the Years 1492 and 1551
 Imp. 8vo, pp. (8), liv, 519.       _New-York Geo. P. Philes_, MDCCCLXVI

     Four hundred copies printed in imperial 8vo, one hundred and nine
     in 4to, ten of which are on Holland paper. It was undertaken at
     the suggestion of Mr. S. L. M. Barlow, of New York, and contains
     the titles of over three hundred books. As a specimen of American
     typography, it has probably never been surpassed. In regard to
     its merits it has received at the hands of some members of the
     Geographical Society of Paris very high praise, of which an
     English version (in part) will be found in Stevens' _Bibliotheca
     Historica_, followed by some rather severe criticism on the work
     by Mr. Stevens, who, writing in the third person, quotes largely
     from an article in the _Athenæum_ of the 6th of October, 1866, of
     which Mr. Stevens is the author. The writer of this notice does
     not presume to enter into a controversy with, or a criticism upon,
     the works of either of these bibliographers, but he cannot help
     regretting that a work so elaborate, learned, and useful to the
     American bibliographer, as this _Bibliotheca Americana_ is, should
     have been the vehicle of any exhibition of personal pique. We have
     been assured on very good authority that the blunder of "Ander
     Schiffahrt's" was really due to the proof-reader, and that the
     Index, in which Schiffahrt (Ander) is made to appear once more in
     _propria persona_, was not the work of Mr. Harrisse at all. Let it
     suffice for us to remark that for the student of the earliest of
     books relating to America, this book is indispensably necessary. We
     may add that Mr. Harrisse has, in some instances, quoted works from
     White Kennett's _Bibliothecæ Americanæ Primordia_, and made the
     remark that he has found nothing in the works so quoted relating to
     America. This has arisen from the fact that he has misapprehended
     the nature of that work, which purposely introduces many books
     which had no relation to America. The following is a continuation:

     Two hundred copies printed in 8vo, and fifty copies in 4to. In the
     matter of printing and paper this volume exceeds in beauty that of
     its predecessor. Its contents cover the same ground; some titles
     contained in the former work are further elaborated, and many are
     entirely new. It will, perhaps, not be saying too much that many of
     them are only remotely related to America, but the author's careful
     researches and elaborate dissertations have combined to render the
     volume a very desirable addition to an American bibliographical

     and historical, and in each department is a specimen of seal and

     This is a capital resumé of the Bibliography of Canada up to

     Twenty-five copies printed in imperial 8vo on large vellum paper.
     The original letters in this volume form a very interesting portion
     of its contents. Those of Ciofanus are filled with abuse of Aldus
     Junior, whom he terms _la Cornacchia Esopea_, and of whose literary
     ability he speaks very slightingly. It also includes a reprint of
     _Capell's Shakesperiana_.

     This amusing bibliographical squib is written by "Carolus Henricus
     Hartshorne," in whose hand the memorandum of the number of copies
     printed is given on the fly-leaf. It appears from this that
     only twenty were printed, and probably in a private manner for
     presentation. The spelling and printing are equally ancient in
     style, and the whole discourse, ending with the poem, runs upon
     black letter and other antique lore.

     The first edition or sale catalogue of this library was
     characterised by the auctioneer as "The most Perfect, Genuine,
     Learned, and Useful Library of Books ever offered to the British
     Public." After the sale a few copies were issued on large paper,
     with the prices and purchasers' names printed to each title. 8vo,

     Add to the note: a few copies were printed on large and thick

 HUMPHREYS (H. N.) A History of the Art of Printing, from its Invention
 to its wide-spread Development in the Middle of the 16th Century.
 Preceded by a Short Account of the Origin of the Alphabet, and of the
 successive Methods of Recording Events and Multiplying Ms. Books before
 the Invention of Printing. By H. Noel Humphreys.... With One Hundred
 Illustrations.... Imp. 4to, pp. 224. 105 Plates.
                                       _London: Bernard Quaritch._ 1867.

     The first issue consisted of three hundred copies only. The
     publisher's certificate to that effect is usually inserted in the
     work. "The illustrations of this work, which, unlike facsimiles
     produced by hand, must _necessarily_ be absolute reproductions
     of their originals, exceed one hundred in number, and frequently
     consist of representations of entire pages from many of the most
     interesting books produced by the early printers. Among them
     may be mentioned an entire folio page from the first printed
     Bible, the magnificent work of Gutenberg, richly adorned with
     ornamental borderings by a contemporary German illuminator. An
     entire page from the celebrated Psalter of Schæffer, in which
     the large capitals are printed in colours, in rivalry with the
     illuminators of the time. Pages from the first books printed in
     Italy, France, Spain, Flanders, and Holland, accompany the accounts
     of the introduction of the printing press to those countries; and
     several such entire pages in facsimile illustrate the description
     of the works of William Caxton, the founder of the printing press
     in England. In addition to these and many illustrations of other
     kinds, will be found a very interesting and an abundant series of
     examples from the most richly decorated of the French 'Horæ,' and
     from the profusely illustrated German books produced in the first
     half of the sixteenth century." The copies dated 1868 are somewhat
     inferior as regards the plates.

 HUMPHREYS. Master Pieces of the Early Printers & Engravers. A Series
 of Facsimiles from Rare and Curious Books remarkable for Illustrative
 Devices, Beautiful Borders, Decorative Initials, Printers Marks,
 Elaborate Title-pages, &c. By H. Noel Humphreys, ... Imp. 4to.
                                       _London: H. Sotheran & Co._ 1870.

     First issued in parts, which are preferable for the early
     impressions of the seventy curious plates. "The great beauty of
     many of the books produced by the Early Printers, both at regards
     the remarkable and various character of their Types, and the
     exquisitely designed Initials and Borderings with which their pages
     are enriched, is scarcely known and appreciated beyond the narrow
     circle of enthusiastic bibliographers who have made the first
     works that issued from the printing press a subject of special
     study; and it is to make them more widely known that the present
     work has been projected. The greater part of the examples are now
     published for the first time, and have never appeared in any other
     bibliographical work. They comprise designs by Wohlgemuth, Durer,
     Burgemair, Cranach, and others equally celebrated."

     and a most complete classified Index of Subjects, which much adds
     to its value.

     fifty concerning Virginia; one hundred, or more, of New England:

     of the Society at Lambeth.

     Although the real object of this monograph was the sale of a lot of
     books, it is none the less valuable as the only monograph of its
     kind in English.

     Best edition of this highly valuable and important work which
     is an alphabetical account of early French literature, the most
     extensive published. "Ces ouvrages sont très précieux pour

     "A work which, for an age that offered small facility or
     encouragement to the prosecution of researches in the field

 LE LONG (J.) Bibliotheca Sacra, post J. Le Long ct C. F. Boerneri

     Dr. Dibdin justly terms this work a "Standard authority on matters
     of Biblical Literature." There is scarcely an edition of the Bible
     extant in Hebrew, Greek, Latin, or Polyglots, but it is accurately
     described, and all textual, as well as typographical variations,
     pointed out; it is perhaps the most perfect Manual of Biblical
     Bibliography extant. The first edition was _Parisiis._ 1709. 2
     vols., 8vo.

 LE LONG. Bibliothèque Historique de la France, contenant le Catalogue

 536, 285; viii, 771.
             _Paris: De l'Imprimerie de Jean-Thomas Herissant._ 1768-78.

     This is perhaps the most laborious and most able bibliographical
     work which has ever appeared. It is scarcely possible to find a
     volume or a manuscript in any way connected with French history
     which is not fully described, and it frequently gives curious
     details respecting English historians. Brunet remarks "Cet ouvrage
     et un des travaux les plus essentiels qu'ait produit la science
     bibliographique, et il doit se trouver dans tous les Bibliothèques."

     "The author of this work, probably the first which contains a
     Catalogue of Books on America, afterwards took the surname of
     Pinelo. The following enlarged edition by Barcia is so clumsily
     thrown together that it is quite a relief to refer from it to this
     neat and well-arranged little manual."--RICH.

     works relating to America, and its greatest value consists in the

     of which are still existing in Spain."--RICH. See also Harrisse's

                               _London: Sampson Low, Son, and Co._ 1858.

 LOW. An Index to Current Literature; comprising a Reference to the
 Author and Subject of every Book in the English Language, and the
 Articles in Literature, Science, and Art, in several Publications.
 1859, 1860, 1861. By Sampson Low. 8vo, pp. lxxxvi, 170. _London._ 1862.

     A most valuable index to serial literature, discontinued from want
     of public appreciation and support.

 LOWNDES (W. T.) The Bibliographer's Manual of English Literature,
 containing an account of Rare, Curious, and Useful Books, published
 in or Relating to Great Britain and Ireland, from the Invention of
 Printing; with Bibliographical and Critical Notices, Collations of the
 Rarer Articles, and the Prices at which they have been sold in this
 Present Century. By William Thomas Lowndes. 4 vols., 8vo, pp. xii,
 2002.                          _London: William Pickering._ MDCCCXXXIV.

     First published as a serial; Part 1. is dated 1828. Invaluable to
     the collector or librarian. The type of this is larger than that of
     the following edition:

 LOWNDES. [Same Title.] New Edition, Revised, Corrected and Enlarged, By
 Henry G. Bohn. 6 vols., 8vo, pp. 2746. _London: Henry G. Bohn._ 1857-69.

     Issued in eleven parts, each of which contains some preliminary,
     explanatory, or exculpatory notice by Mr. Bohn. It is much to
     be regretted that the earlier part of the work does not include
     the same ratio of additions as the later, and book-collectors,
     in general, would have been pleased to pay a higher price for
     a handsomer book. Mr. Bohn's name as editor did not appear on
     the first title to Vol. 1. Power remarks "A good guide to Mr.
     Bohn's various reprints and 'Libraries,' and the appendix is a
     carefully-compiled list of the publications of the Book-printing
     Clubs, the private presses, such as Strawberry Hill, Lee Priory,
     &c., and the rare reprints of Collier, Halliwell, Maidment,
     Turnbull, and others. _The Bibliographer's Manual_ is a work which,
     for want of a better, no English book-lover can do without. The
     first edition has the advantage of Mr. Bohn's, being printed in
     more legible type." Later issues bear the name of _Bell & Daldy_ as
     publishers. In 1869, two hundred and fifty copies were printed on
     large paper, in 6 vols., cr. 8vo. The statement that one hundred
     copies were printed on large paper, which appears on that number
     of copies which were sent to America, is, to say the least, an
     abbreviation of the truth. Mr. Bohn's eleven prefatory notices,
     which to some extent explain the nature and extent of his labors,
     have been omitted in the large paper copies, both editions being
     in other respects exactly the same. There is no substitute for
     _The Bibliographer's Manual_; undertaken originally to supply an
     obvious desideratum felt by all readers and book-buyers, it forms
     at once a key to the riches of English literature for the student,
     and a guide in the formation of a library for the collector. In
     its present enlarged form it comprises notices of upwards of one
     hundred thousand distinct books published in Great Britain and
     Ireland, but it is susceptible of much improvement.

 LOWNDES. The British Librarian, or Book Collector's Guide to the
 formation of a Library, in all Branches of Literature, ... With Prices,
 Critical Notes, References, and an Index of Authors and Subjects....
 By William T. Lowndes. 8vo, 1320 columns.
                                    _London: Whittaker and Co._ 1839-42.

     Eleven parts; comprising "Religion and its History," being all
     that were published. It is a valuable Bibliography of Theological
     Literature; its completion was prevented by the death of the author.

 LOWNDES. Shakespeare and his Commentators, from Lowndes'
 Bibliographer's Manual. 8vo. Portrait.                  _London._ 1831.

     Fifty-two copies printed--not for sale. This was reproduced with
     additions as below:

 LOWNDES. A Bibliographical Account of the Works of Shakespeare,
 including every known Edition, Translation, and Commentary. By
 Henry G. Bohn. Printed off separately from his enlarged edition of
 the Bibliographer's Manual, with some Additions. Sm. 4to, pp. (4),
 2253-2368.                                              _London._ 1868.

     The additions contain lists of the early quartos in the library of

                        _New York: Printed for the Author._ M.DCCC.XLVI.

     Privately printed, and scarce. A Supplement was subsequently
     printed in the _Literary World_, of which twenty-six copies only
     were separately printed--that being the number of persons who had
     the politeness to acknowledge the gift of the "Essay."

 Ludewig. With Additions and Corrections, By Professor Wm. W. Turner.
 Edited by Nicolas Trübner. 8vo, pp. viii, (1), ix-xxiv, 258.

     With two indexes, one of authors and the other of works.

 927; (2), 799; (6), 725.            _Lisboa, Off. de Fonseca._ 1741-59.

     The extreme rarity of this great work, the highest authority upon
     Portuguese bibliography, arises from the circumstance that a large
     proportion of the first three volumes perished by fire at Lisbon in
     1755. _See_ Petzholdt, p. 381.

     Very scarce; a few copies only having been printed for presents.
     The compiler was the keeper of the manuscripts and libraries of
     the Archbishop of Canterbury, and thus had unusual facilities for

     Very scarce; most of the copies having been destroyed by fire.
     It is to be regretted that when the author undertook this work
     he had not made himself better acquainted with the duties of a
     bibliographer--to say that it is carelessly done, is but mild
     criticism. The critical notices are numerous, voluminous, and often

     The value, importance, and great rarity of a complete copy of
     this work is well known. As it was twenty years in course of
     publication, very few complete sets were ever made up, but it is
     especially rare to find the two supplemental volumes. Sir M. Sykes'
     copy sold for £84.

     "It is impossible in a small space to give anything like an
     adequate idea of the vast amount of curious information which
     these volumes contain. The hundreds of literary celebrities who
     are brought forward not merely by passing anecdotes but by highly
     valuable memoirs and sketches, and the extensive bibliographical
     and literary matter which they contain, render this one of the most
     permanently interesting sets of books ever published." Vols. vii.
     and viii. are additions by the author's son, J. B. Nichols.

     No. 6,292 is the celebrated Valdarfer Boccaccio of 1471, the only
     known copy, which was purchased by the Marquis of Blandford for
     £2,260, the highest price ever paid for a single volume. Dibdin
     gives (_more suo_) a long account of the contest for this volume in
     his _Bibliographical Decameron_, III. 62-65. The Roxburghe Club was
     one of the results of this famous sale.

     To collectors of works, containing early or local proverbs, a study
     as entertaining, as useful to the etymologist, this manual will be
     found indispensable, as there are many works, particularly among
     those early printed, which contain proverbs among other matter,
     though not clearly stated in the title; it is, in fact, a very
     extensive chronological list of proverbial works, and a collection
     of proverbs in all languages. _See_ Petzholdt, p. 697.

     This is doubtless the largest catalogue ever put forth by a
     bookseller. The bibliographical notes appended to the rare or most
     important books are distinguished by much learning and critical
     research, and are tolerably free from the trade bias which usually
     accompanies a bookseller's catalogue.

     portrait of John Allan. In the large paper copies the name of the
     compiler of the catalogue was omitted, because in a note on the

     A very valuable catalogue, both on account of the richness of

     important, render this one of the most useful books on these
     subjects that has issued from the press.

     "This noble library, vast in its numbers, and profound in the
     learning of its contents, is a monument worthy of the memory of
     its author's name, as to biblical, theological, grammatical, and
     critical literature, in the Greek and Roman, as well as the Hebrew

     Major Scott's contribution to the Bannatyne Club. One hundred
     copies only printed; very scarce. This very valuable catalogue was
     compiled by the late J. G. Cochrane, of the London Library, St.
     James' Square. It contains very numerous references to the works of
     Sir Walter Scott, where he refers to, or quotes, the various books
     in the library. "The nature and extent of the collection throw
     light in a remarkable manner on the history of its founder. The
     reader has before him a faithful inventory of the materials with
     which the national poet and novelist had stored his mind before he
     began his public career, and of the zeal with which he watched the
     progress of literary enterprise down to the close of his life."

 Delineations of Scripture History, issued in Holland, Flanders, and
 Germany, during the Fifteenth Century, Exemplified and Considered in
 Connection with the Origin of Printing. To which is added An Attempt
 to Elucidate the character of the Paper-Marks of the Period. A work
 contemplated by the late Samuel Sotheby, and carried out by his Son
 Samuel Leigh Sotheby. 3 vols., 8vo, pp. (4), xvi, 200; (2), 216; (2),
 190, (27). 121 Plates.  _London: Printed for the Author._ M,DCCC,LVIII.

     Two hundred and fifty copies printed. The two leaves, subsequently
     printed, giving an account of the sale of the edition at auction,
     at the upset price of £9 per set, should be added, "a result," says
     Mr. Sotheby "unparalleled in the annals of literature." One of
     the most important works ever produced upon the history of early
     printing, on which it throws great additional light. It contains
     an extended examination of the various editions of the block books
     (or books printed from wooden blocks), the earliest productions
     of the art, issued in Holland, Flanders, and Germany, such as the
     Apocalypsis S. Johannis, Biblia Pauperum, Ars Moriendi, Cantica
     Canticorum, Liber Regum, Temptationes Dæmonum, Ars Memorandi,
     Endkrist, Quindecim Signa, De Generatione Christi, Miribilia Romæ,
     etc. It is not, however, confined to a history of block books, for
     it gives minute accounts, accompanied by exact facsimiles, of some
     of the most interesting and rare works printed with movable type in
     the infancy of the art, such as the Donatuses, Doctrinale, Catonis
     Disticha, Horarium, Facetiæ, Morales, Speculum Humanæ Salvationis,
     Bartolomæus van de Proprietaten der Dinghen, Exhortatio contra
     Turcos, Literæ Indulgentiarum, etc.

 Bibliothèque Impériale, Paris, made October MDCCCLVIII., by Samuel

     which it forms an indispensable supplement.

 SOTHEBY. The Typography of the Fifteenth Century; being Specimens of
 the Productions of the Early Continental Printers, Exemplified in a
 Collection of Facsimiles from one hundred Works, together with their
 Water-Marks. Arranged and Edited from the Bibliographical Collections

 vii.                                       _London: Thomas Rodd._ 1845.

     One hundred copies only printed; very scarce. Uniform in size with
     the _Principia Typographica_. It contains 100 facsimile plates of
     the productions of the early printers, with the initials colored
     and illuminated in gold, in imitation of the originals, besides
     nearly 100 cuts on wood of paper-marks, etc. It will be found
     a very useful work with which to identify the books which have
     neither name of printer or place of printing.

             _London: Printed by Whittingham and Wilkins_ ... MDCCCLXII.

     "Printed in the best style of the Chiswick Press, regardless of
     time, it comprises 2934 titles given in full, with the collation
     and price of each work. It was intended as far as it went to be
     a manual for collectors of this expensive class of books. But it
     did not go very far, containing as it does, not a selection, but
     only such books as the author happened to possess at that time.
     It was intended to supply the deficiencies by additional volumes,
     but these have never appeared, and probably never will in this
     form."--_Author._ A few copies were issued in 1858 with a different
     title. _See_ Petzholdt, p. 812.

 [STEVENS.] Bibliotheca Americana. A Catalogue of Books relating to the

     with collations, etc., and will be useful to the collector. It is,
     in fact, an abridgment of Stevens' _Historical Nuggets_, although
     the latter was not published till 1862. It is one of the most
     carefully prepared auction catalogues ever issued.

 STEVENS. Bibliotheca Historica; or, a Catalogue of ... Books and

     "The pleasure we have experienced in perusing these sheets, has
     been considerably heightened by our confidence in the accuracy of
     the contents (Major Stewart giving notes and references from the
     most authentic materials), and from the modest, unassuming manner
     in which the whole is written. The work Major Stewart proposed to
     write was one of great curiosity to all classes of readers, and a
     desideratum of real consequence to Oriental scholars."--_British

     This catalogue, now rare, contains much more than that by
     Triphook. See _Notes and Queries_, Second Series, XII. 77. Mr.
     Stewart's catalogues of his own stock are replete with valuable
     bibliographical and critical notices. It is no exaggeration to say
     that in the departments of literature to which Mr. Stewart has
     given special attention he is the best living authority.

 8vo, pp. 487; 576.
                _Worcester: From the Press of Isaiah Thomas, Jun._ 1810.

     This valuable work, written and published in advance of the time,
     met with no favor, and was quickly forgotten. It was reprinted with
     the following title:

 THOMAS. The History of Printing in America: ... By Isaiah Thomas,
 LL.D. ... Second Edition. With the Author's Corrections and Additions,
 and a Catalogue of American Publications previous to the Revolution of
 1776.... 2 vols., 8vo, pp. lxxxvii, 423, Portrait; 666, Index, (50).
                           _Albany, N. Y.: Joel Munsell, Printer._ 1874.

     In this edition some of the matter in the first it omitted.
     The list of ante-revolutionary publications is far from being
     complete, and it is much to be regretted that many of the titles
     are not given correctly; one specimen is conspicuous: on page 405,
     article Bass, an error in the Massachusetts Catalogue is pointed
     out, but the title is turned round. There is nothing in the title
     about Benjamin Colman, and the collation is pp. (2), iii, 40;
     the printer's name is not given. Errors like these swarm in the
     list, a circumstance to be regretted, as a little additional labor
     would have made that right which is now wrong. It is the more
     inexcusable, as a reference to Sabin's _Dictionary_ would have
     furnished many titles entirely omitted or incorrectly described.

     Of this valuable catalogue very few copies were printed, all for
     presents. Archdeacon Cotton, who refers to this work in almost
     every page of his list of the various editions of the Holy
     Scriptures, says, "I have much pleasure in testifying to the great
     accuracy and minuteness of the collations and descriptions in
     this most valuable catalogue. Those of the earlier and more rare
     editions are given with a fullness and distinctness which leaves
     nothing to desire. I could not insert all those particulars into
     a slight work like the present list; but confidently refer those
     persons who desire more detailed notice of any remarkable edition
     to this curious and valuable catalogue of Mr. Wilson."
