About this Item

Second edition, 8vo, 2 vols. in 1, as issued, pp. [8], l, 899, [1]; contemporary mottled calf with polished calf inlay, neatly rebacked with original spine laid down, spine with red and brown morocco labels and elaborately gilt in 6 compartments, a.e.g, marbled endpapers; front free endpaper with a narrow chip; an attractive, sound copy. Suggestions on what to buy, what "points" to look for, what pitfalls to avoid in many areas of collecting, including Bibles, world history, voyages and travels, biography, and English poets and drama. Massive work, requiring a nearly 70-p. index, with much useful and some not so useful information. A thousand copies were printed, bound in 1 volume and omitting the half-title and the title of the second volume. "Dibdin endeavoured in this edition to insert the corrections supplied him by his friends and the not very friendly reviewers." Jackson 64; Windle & Pippin, A50b. Bookseller Inventory # 22653
