About this Item

Two octavo volumes. xiii, 562; 579pp. Fourth edition, greatly enlarged and corrected. Inscribed by the book collector and businessman Albert M. Todd of Kalamazoo, Michigan, to noted librarian William Warner Bishop, who was head of the Bentley Historical Library at the University of Michigan from 1915-1941 and president of the American Library Association from 1918-1919. In the inscription, Todd writes, "To my dear friend William Warner Bishop who has aided me so greatly with his advice on selecting many valuable books for my library." Todd's travels in Europe as a young man inspired a lifelong passion for collecting rare books. He established the Rare Book Room at Kalamazoo College's Upjohn Library, and much of his collection of books was donated to the library by his family. With a facsimile plate of Complutensian Polyglot as a frontispiece to the first volume. The fourth edition of Dibdin is considered the best and most complete and is a valuable reference resource for collectors, scholars, and librarians alike. Bound in quarter calf and green paper-covered boards, with horizontal blind rules across the spine and gilt dots on either side of these rules, in an Arts & Crafts style. Some offsetting to title page of volume one from the frontispiece plate, margins of covers lightly sunned, some light spotting and rubbing to spines, slight split between endpaper and half-title page and also between the final two pages in volume one, collector's notes in pencil to blank leaf at end of volume one, else a very nice set with notable provenance. Top edges green. Bookseller Inventory # 24570
