(23.5 cm), ix (1), 144 pp., frontispiece and [8] leaves of plates. Publisher’s green buckram binding. - “This volume… is one which will make a strong appeal to everyone interested in the solution of bibliographical problems. It deals with forty-one volumes of verse, mostly minor, published in the eighteenth century, nearly all of which are of special interest either on account of the light which they throw on printing or publishing methods of their time or as offering a bibliographical puzzle of one sort or another” (R.B. McKerrow, in The Review of English Studies, volume 11, January 1935, p.118). Among the appendices is a list of books of verse to which Samuel Johnson subscribed. Reprint of the limited edition (500 copies) published in London & New York in 1934, as no. 7 of Michael Sadleir’s series “Bibliographia; studies in book history and book structure”. ¶ As new.
