About this Item

Thick Quarto. Limited to 500 copies. 530p., illustrations, bibliography, index. The extensive bibliography alone makes this a valuable work. Tinker was the Keeper of the Rare Books at Yale from 1930 to long after World War II. What set him apart from the half-hearted accumulator of rare books is that even when his salary was low, he was not "frightened off by what appeared to be high prices". In the end his collection was worth many times what he had paid for them and his work on behalf of the library kept Yale's Rare Book Collection as among one of the great libraries in the academic world. Bound in blue cloth, spine lettering gilt, A very good copy with some fading to spine, previous owner's address label. Bookseller Inventory # 013801
