Book Description William H. Robinson Ltd., London, bookseller's catalogue, 1953, 1953. Printed illustrated boards, folio, 330 x 222 mm, 192 pp, plates (1 colour, folding), colour frontispiece. 104 entries. The fourth in a series of special illustrated catalogues describing manuscripts and books chiefly from the renowned collection of Sir Thomas Phillipps, Bt. "The catalogue . contains twenty-four manuscripts and eighty printed books. Nearly all the former and a high proportion of the latter are from the library of Sir Thomas Phillipps (1792-1872)" The introduction to the catalogue sets out some interesting correspondence concerning a Gutenberg Bible which Phillipps bid up to an unprecedented price at auction, lost nevertheless to James Lenox, the American collector, was then offered the chance to purchase at slightly less than Lenox had bid, declined - and quickly came to regret. Munby, The Dispersal of the Phillipps Library notes in discussing Robinson catalogues containing Phillipps material that "This catalogue [79] and two others (81 and 83), produced under the typographical supervision of Mr John Dreyfus of the Cambridge University Press, must rank for splendour of their contents, lavishness of illustration and opulence of production among the most costly and sumptuous catalogues ever issued by a bookseller." From a contemporary review: "[This] catalogue.must be the grandest - some would say, the most grandiose - catalogue ever issued by an antiquarian bookseller in this country. A folio of 200 pages, 12 ½ x 8 ¾ ins, printed on a superior paper, with about 135 illustrations in gravure (several coloured), bound in boards, with a cellophane dust-jacket [not present here], it is issued in a 'strictly limited' edition at the price of two guineas, and describes twenty-four manuscripts and eighty printed books.Such an extraordinary array of treasures may well fill booksellers and non-millionaire collectors with envy and despair.Most of the MSS and many of the printed books derive from the library of Sir Thomas Phillipps. Among those which do not, the questing eye may discover evidence of such provenances as Loseley Park and Holland House, Andrew Fletcher of Saltoun, or the Earls of Lovelace and Fitzwilliam. The range is wide: from an eighth-century MS of Josephus or an eleventh-century Gradual (containing the earliest known example of pre-Gregorian chant) written for the Benedictines in Trastevere, to a quatrain from Pope to Martha Blount in a presentation copy of The Temple of Fame, or 165 unpublished letters from John Locke to Lord Chancellor King; from the first editions of Medina's Arte de Navegar (Valladolid, 1545).[to] an immaculate copy in seventeenth-century calf of the Fourth Folio. The annotation is ample, indeed expansive, in scope, and occasionally more effulgent in style than such rich material might be thought to need." Boards rather soiled with some spotting and staining along and around the spine. Otherwise Good. Seller Inventory # ABE-03723
