About this Item

Frontispiece, lvi, 176p. Contemporary gilt ruled roan with marbelised foredge. The rare privately printed catalogue of Bibliothecae Colfanae. It contains a memorial to the founder Rev. Abraham Colfe. The catalogue is divided up in four main sections: Theology, Philosophy, History and Philology with numerous commentaries and references to standard bibliographies. It also contains a list of benefactors and the books they donated with on occasional note that the title in question is 'wanting'. The Gentleman's Magazine of 1854 notes that public character of the Library was gone some twenty years after the catalogue was issued. They complain bitterly that there is no keeper of the library and the "Schoolmaster has got it into his own hands and refuses the best qualified student admission to its stores. It is his private property as master!". From the Library of William Wigg Warden 1835/6. An Ex Library copy in very good condition with a bookplate on the inside front board with a notation that it was a gift from J.G. Rosengarten. It has a perforated stamp on the title page and the call numbers imprinted on the spine, but is otherwise free from any unseemly library stamps. Bookseller Inventory # 2735
