(27 cm), (8) vii (3), 105 (1) pp. Publisher’s printed wrappers. - 801 entries and 5 indexes giving access to the books by place, date and other circumstances of publication. “Chronologically, the collection sensibly starts long before Alciati, with Sebastian Brant, and comes right down to Charlotte Mutsaer’s Het circus van de geest (Amsterdam 1983). The principle is an excellent one, especially when the alphabetical catalogue is provided with chronological and topographical indexes, and the result is a guide which deserves to be shelved next to Mario Praz himself” (from a notice in The Book Collector, Summer 1986, pp.242-243). 500 copies printed. ¶ Light shelf wear.
