About this Item

There is apparently some confusion among sellers about this particular edition of THE BIBELOT. Here is a short summary: in 1895 Thomas B. Mosher began publishing "A Reprint of Poetry and Prose for Book Lovers, chosen in part from scarce editions and sources not generally known." Fascicles appeared monthly and were collected into volumes yearly for 20 years. Mosher stopped publishing the work in 1915. In 1925 William H. Wise reprinted the original twenty volumes of Mosher's work and added volume 21, an Index. However, Wise gave bibliographical information on the title pages and colophons of his new reprint edition only about the original Mosher edition, hence the rampant confusion about date and place of publication. In only the last volume of the set (Vol. 21) did Wise indicate that the date of publication is 1925. All this is complicated by the variations in quality of bindings, covers, and "limited" printings of the Wise editions. That said (and understood), the Wise edition remains a very nice "reprint" edition and is still quite useful. The volumes in the set we list here are bound in blue cloth with paper labels printed with black and red ink. The title pages also are printed in red and black. There is no list of illustrations but there are many throughout the work. All the volumes in this set are in very good condition although the spines have faded somewhat and some of the labels are now darkened. Many of the pages remain uncut (unopened) which indicates that the books have not been read. Bookseller Inventory # 001520
