PREFATORY NOTES 



IT was the late Henry George Bonn, the famous publisher, with 
whom my revered Master, Mr. David White, was an apprentice, 
• who once remarked to a clergyman, " Well, now, you've been 
preaching on one subject for fifty years ; how do you manage to say 
something new about it every week ? " The clergyman replied that 
he didn't attempt to say anything new, but that he endeavoured to 
say the old things in a new way. "Well," answered Bohn, " lean 
only say that I'm sorry for you." / have to attempt to write on 
one subject only once each year, yet I always begin by being sorry for 
myself , which merely proves that for me the Church would not have 
been an ideal vocation. For there seems to be nothing to say, 
except the heading, " Prefatory Notes," and the sole remedy appears 
to be to sit down to the typewriter and get that into black and white 
and let the rest come, whatever it may happen to be. 

The inspiration of the moment leads me to begin with the usual 
opening to conversation among Englishmen, namely that the weather 
this year has been as bad as it always is. After that we can get to 
business. The mention of the word " business " is a reminder of the 
exceeding interestingness of bookselling as an occupation. There is 
no other calling like it under the sun, for the printed book, being issued 
by the thousand, and scattered all over the face of the earth, is 
the most abiding record of the work, of the world. The clay 
tablets of the Assyrians have unfolded the life of the earlier years of 
the historic period,but they could be only infinitesimal in number com- 
pared with the material for libraries which has been put out since 
the invention of printing. So we may at least hope that whether 
Western civilization flourishes indefinitely or not at least its records 
may survive in the form of the printed page, and its philosophies be 
of service in moulding the destinies of later eras. That, alone, is an 
interesting aspiration. 

To refer once more to a point touched upon last year, viz. the 
idea among a few that antiquarian bookselling is "a wretched 
calling," experience shows that it is anything but that. Besides the 
solid intellectual gratifications it gives there is the fact that fewer 
fail in it than in almost, if not quite, any other occupation that can 
be named. Statistics prove that. And when those failures do occur 



V 



they are accounted for either by personal reasons or from causes over 
which men have no control, some among those reasons being high 
qualities of character which prevent a man being brutal enough to 
compete successfully against his more commercial fellows. All the 
more honour to them, and not disgrace. I have known more than one 
such case. The antiquarian bookseller who finds that the times are 
" hard " must see, if he has eyes to see, that times are harder by far 
with others. Competition increases so rapidly that what the end of it 
is to be must be left to the surmises of statesmen and philosophers, 
for the man in the street cannot suggest what it will be. He is far too 
busily engaged in keeping the wolf from the door to spare time in 
which to speculate upon abstract questions. 

Romance plays a considerable part in antiquarian book- 
dealing. You never know what is going to " turn up. For instance, 
within the past twelvemonth a London bookseller bought from a 
country catalogue a tiny volume for three shillings. A month or two 
later he sold it for £250. Another purchased a bundle at a London 
auction-room for a few shillings, and found in it a rare pamphlet of 
which only one other copy is known, the latter being priced fifty 
guineas in a London dealer's catalogue. The self-same lucky book- 
seller in turn sold from his catalogue to another London dealer a 
little volume for 12/-, the latter re-selling it in a few days for £6 6s. Od. 
Yet another bought a book for £50 for which he was at once offered 
£150 by a bookseller, but he declines to accept less than £250. And 
one bundle of pamphlets was purchased at a London sale for £15, and 
contained one item worth £150. These are all cases within my 
own knowledge, occurring among subscribers to B.A.R. One other 
case was reported in the London press, in which, during the past 
season, a set of Johnson's "Lives of the Poets" was bought by an 
East End bookseller, from a stall, for ninepence. But on the title 
was the inscription " J. Wesley, the gift of the Author, 1781," and, 
in another hand, " S. Wesley, the Legacy of her much honoured 
uncle J. Wesley, 1791." The fortunate purchaser promptly sent his 
" find " to the auction-room, and realised £9 10s. Od. for it. The 
record will be found on page 84 of the present volume. The 
fact that such coups are possible adds a touch of excitement to an 
otherwise quiet and studious calling, and gratifies the sporting 
instinct inherent in most men. It also tends to sharpen the wits 
and to make one determine not, if possible, to let such chances slip 
through one's fingers. Upon the other hand, let no unprofessional 
reader into whose possession this volume may chance to come suppose 
that these " flukes " fall undeserved into the laps of members of the 



bibliopolic fraternity. For bookselling, while a delightful is also an 
arduous occupation, success requiring devotion no less keen because 
the work is congenial. It means many journeys to country sales 
throughout the length and breadth of the land ; constant attendance 
at the London auctions ; and the possibility that the best client of 
the week may be missed the moment one's back is turned. Every 
penny, in fact, of the bookseller's income is well-earned. What may be 
claimed for the calling is that there are infinitely less agreeable 
methods of employing one's time. 

In the present vohime, for the first time since B.A.R. was issued, 
will be found records of Japanese books sold in London, a fact 
not without its significance to those who recognize the rapidly- 
changing conditions between East and West. The exploitation of 
so-called " barbarian " peoples in the interests of Western commer- 
cialism will probably, before the end of the twentieth century, be a 
thing of the past. 

It afforded me peculiar pleasure to be able to include on the cover 
of one of the parts of this volume a view of the Hugh Frederick 
Hornby Library, Liverpool, thus helping, in however small a way, to 
perpetuate the memory of one of the noblest and most simple-minded 
bibliophiles it has ever been my good fortune to know. 

Infallibility in B.A.R. is not claimed. It is only aspired to and 
every possible effort made to achieve it. But when the sources from 
which the details are obtained are not under one's own direction some 
errors are bound to creep in. Thus, there may possibly be a few 
hitherto-undiscovered cases of the names of authors being in- 
correctly spelt. All that can be said on that point is that the names 
are reproduced from the sale-catalogues as printed, and that when 
errors are noticed they are corrected. When, however, not recog- 
nised during the printing of the Parts they are generally discovered 
while making the Index, and cross-references then act as finger-posts. 
The foregoing applies equally to previous volumes of B.A.R., and, 
cataloguers being only human, it will doubtless apply also to volumes 
in future. Such names as those of " Bevan " and " Beavan " are 
often transposed, and, but for one happening to know " which is 
which and which t'other," and happening also to identify the error 
while the proofs pass through one's hands, the mis-spelling may 
be perpetuated in B.A.R., and await later correction. Variations 
in the spelling of surnames will sometimes bring an author's works 
under different headings in the Index. An instance occurs in the 
present volume, being that of the Voyages of Cornelius Lebruyn, 
which appears on page 90, under the French form of the cognomen, 
viz. " Lebrun," and on page 417 his Voyage to the Levant appears, in an 
English translation, under what is presumably his correct name, viz. 
Le Bruyn, for as his works were published principally at Amsterdam 
and Delft he was doubtless a Dutchman. Brunet gives his name 
as being " Le Brun or Lebruyn." In such cases searchers must do 
what the indexer has to do, viz. exercise his intelligence. Initials, also, 
are a constant source of difficulty, wrong ones being continually given 



in catalogues, and doubtless they are sometimes reproduced. Such 
errors. ;irc howe v er, so patent that they do no harm, the surname, 
tin- title, and the date clearly indicating the particular author in 
question. Dealing, in fact, with such a mass of names, dates (both 
■ litions and of sales), and prices, it would require the eye of a 
lynx and the 'cuteness of the proverbial Philadelphia lawyer to avoid 
all error. And. as is well-known, I always feel deeply indebted 
to those subscribers who are kind enough to inform me of mis- 
prints, as notice of their existence can then be given, for the general 
good. 

The extra plates in Vol. 6 have received much appreciation. It 
will of course be remembered that they are " extras," and that B.A.R. 
would have found as ready a sale without as with them. They were 
added because they seemed interesting to myself, and I thought they 
might seem equally interesting to subscribers. 

The sins of compositors are so often represented as being flagrant 
that it is pleasant to be able to pay a tribute to the intelligence with 
which they decipher hieroglyphic handwriting. The following misprint 
had reason on its side, not unmixed with unconscious humour, and 
should be admired rather than merely condoned. The title of 
Dodgson's Hunting of the Snark had been transposed into Hunting of 
the Shark. Failing a knowledge of the works of the author of Alice 
in Wonderland it was most natural to suppose that the word must 
be " shark," and the compositor was so thoroughly to be commended 
for his well-intentioned correction of what he believed to be some 
other compositor's mistake that I felt sorry to have to correct it. 
Like the piano-player on the Pacific Slope, he was doing his level 
best, and it was repugnant to one's feelings to have to shoot. In- 
deed, during a prolonged experience of proof-reading I have never 
had so few printers' errors to correct as now. 

Among the pleasant incidents of the past year has been the pro- 
duction of Notes from Sotheby's. It is a volume which, quite unin- 
fluenced by the fact that I played the subsidiary part of compiler, 
should, in my opinion, be in every librarian's and every bookseller's 
reference library. It contains so much that may and ought to be 
useful to those dealing in books, never knowing from day to day 
when one of the editions may come into their hands respecting which 
the volume contains invaluable information. 

The correspondence which comes to me is so varied, so stimulating, 
and, like Matthew Arnold's three glasses of claret with dinner, so 
much " adds to the agreeableness of life," that space may be found 
for one or two extracts. A subscriber who had both B.A.R. and 
Notes from Sotheby's wrote : 

" I am at present trying to learn something about the second-hand 
book trade, and although I have been engaged with books for 
thirty years it is only since I attempted anything in this way that I 



discovered what a duffer one really is. Anyhow, if it is not too 
late in the day I hope to make something out of it, and at the same 
time improve my education." 

The writer's level-headed common-sense filled me with admiration. 

The next has a pathetic interest, for it is written by a subscriber who 
was forced by ill-health to retire from active work : 

" I enclose cheque for B.A.R. I thank you for sending them, and 
not the least for your personal contributions, always genial, breezy, 
fraternal. They form about my only link with old days that one 
would fain have linger, and through them, out of the past, returns 
touches of vanished hands. May the present year bring its 
increase of success and satisfaction which belongs to such lives 
as yours." 

My poor subscriber is afflicted with the same malady that robbed me of 
four brothers and sisters, leaving me the last survivor of the family, 
and whatever I felt able to reply was at least sincere and heartfelt. 

The next extract is brief, and has a satisfactory ring : 

" Before I close I should like to tell you that I know that Vol. 3 
of B.A.R., which was the first I received, saved me over £20 the 
first year." 

Need I add that this subscriber has since been wise enough to com- 
plete his set, and to add Notes from Sotheby's to it ? Another " wise 
virgin," an entire stranger, wrote from far-away Brisbane : 

" I am the proud possessor of three volumes of your B.A.R., and 
as they have proved so useful would like to complete my set." 

That was cheering, only I wondered how three volumes could have 
got to the other side of the globe without my being able to trace them. 

Then a canny Scotsman writes : 

" I have read the parts through page by page with great interest, 
as many hints can be had even when one is not actually looking 
for any special item ; in fact I went through Part I of Vol. 6 on 
Sunday ! ! (yes, this was done in Scotland) page for page until I 
got over the lot." 

And lastly, the daughter of a bookseller writes : 

" Please acknowledge the enclosed cheque for father's subscription 

to B.A.R. Father does enjoy having it." 
I couldn't help printing this for the sake of the gusto of the final 
sentence. 

The rate of increase of the circulation has this year more than 
doubled that of last year.

JAMES RECKITT BRANCH LENDING LIBRARY, HULL 



Notes on Hull Authors, Booksellers, 
Printers, and Stationers, etc. 

by W. G. B. PAGE, Librarian ; 

James Reckitt Branch Library, Hull ; and 
author of " Historic Hull Houses," etc., etc. 



KINGSTON-UPON-HULL ; or, as it is now usually called, Hull, has 
existed for the long period of over seven hundred years. Formerly 
it was known as Wyke-super-Hull, and at that time the town was 
confined within the limits of the present docks. Its first charter was grant- 
ed by Edward I. in 1293 and yet, outside the county of " Broad Acres " it 
appears to be very little heard of, although it is a city and county town of 
some 266,000 inhabitants, and is the third port in the kingdom. 

The literary history of the city dates almost from the first beginning 
of the introduction of printing into England, and numbers amongst its 
earliest authors such names as John Alcock, D.D., Bishop of Ely, and Lord 
Chancellor of England ; Capt. Luke Foxe ; Andrew Marvell, M.P., the 
friend of Milton ; Wm. Wilberforce, M.P. ; Rev. Wm. Mason, M.A., the 
poet, and friend of Gray, and many others, who were all born in this city. 

John Alcock, successively Bishop of Rochester, Worcester, and Ely, 
and Lord Chancellor in 1475, was born in Hull* about 1425, and is one of 
our earliest literati. He was the son of Wm. Alcock, merchant, and edu- 
cated in the Grammar School, then located at the S.W. corner of Holy 
Trinity Church ; he afterwards went to Cambridge, where in 1466 he 
graduated as Doctor, of Laws. He was also the founder of Jesus College, 
Cambridge, and built the Grammar School which was erected in 1486, on 
the south side of the churchyard, still existing, but now used as a choir 
school in connection with Holy Trinity Church. Bp. Alcock was the author 
of the following works, which were printed by Pynson and Wynkyn de 
Worde. 1. Spousage of a Virgin to Christ, 1486 ; 2. Mons Perfectionis, 
otherwyce called in Englyssh, the Hylle of Perfection, [1497 ] ; 3. Gallicantus et 
co[n]frates suos curatos in Sin'odo apud Bernwell XXV. die mensis Sept., 
1498 ; 4. Sermo[n] Johnis Alcok, Epi. Elieannis ; 5. The Abbaye of the Holy 
Ghost. He died at the episcopal palace, Wisbeach, Oct. 1st, 1500, and was 
buried in Ely cathedral. 

Capt. Luke Foxe, famed as the Discoverer of the North- West Passage, 
was another Hull man, who in 1635 published " The West Fox, or Fox 
from the North- West Passage ; being an Account of several voyages under- 
taken to find out the North- West Passage, by Captain Lvke Foxe of 
Kyngstone-vpon-Hull." London : B. Alsop, (4to., 272 pp., and map). 
" This treatise contains many important facts, and judicious observations 
on the ices, tides, compass, Northern Lights," etc.t In 1856 a copy of this 
book was sold at Sotheby's for £8 10s. Thomas Bridges, who was a partner 
in the firm of Messrs. Sill, Bridges, and Blunt, Bankers, Hull, was the author 
of the well-known Travestie of Homer, which was published anonymously in 
1762, entitled "A New Translation of Homer's Iliad adapted to the capacity 
of honest English Roast Beef and Pudding Eaters, by Caustic Barebones, a 
broken apothecary." 12mo., 2 vols., which was reprinted in 1764, 1766, 
1770, and 1797. Copies are now very scarce. He also wrote " The Battle 

* Not Beverley as mentioned by previous writers, 
t Lowndes, Biblio. Man. (Bohn's Edition) 



ii. 

of the Genii," 4to., 1765 ; " The Adventures of a Bank Note," 8vo., 1770-1 , 
4 vols. ; " Dido, a Comic Opera," 8vo., 1771 ; and " The Dutchman, a 
Musical Entertainment," 1775. Andrew Marvell, who though he was born 
..t Winestead, a village near Hull, of which place his father was then the 
rector, we claim him as a local author, his father having removed here 
shortly after his son's birth. He was born in 1621, and received his early 
education in the Hull Grammar School, of which place his father became 
Master. He afterwards went to Cambridge, and was M.P. for Hull from 
1658 until his death, which took place on August 16th, 1678. Those wish- 
ing to know more of Marvell are referred to the various editions of his 
works edited by Edward Thompson, Rev. Alex. Grosart, and G. A. Aitken ; 
and his Life by A. Birrell, M.P., and Hartley Coleridge ( Yorkshire Worthies). 
Coming down to modern times there are many names of well-known authors 
in the literary world that should be mentioned who have had connection with 
the town. Amongst these, Miss Braddon, who in her early days was an 
actress at the Theatre Royal, under the name of " Mary Seyton." Her 
books, Dead Men's Shoes, Henry Dunbar, and The Trail of the Serpent have 
many allusions to the town and neighbourhood. "J. E. Buckrose " who 
has written The Toll Bar, Wood End, The Wolf, Voices, etc., Mrs. O. F. 
Walton, the popular authoress of A Peep behind the Scenes ; The Rev. Win. 
Keary, Curate of Sculcoates, and his daughter, Annie Keary, author of 
A Doubting Heart, Castle Daly, and Oldbury, both resided here for some 
years. Oldbury, the title of one of Miss Keary's books, is only another 
name for Hull, and in that work she gives some account of her former 
schoolmistress (Miss Stainton) and the school in Dock Street, which, as 
a child, she 'used to attend. Miss Frances Jane Lutwidge, the mother of 
" Lewis Carroll," author of Alice's Adventures, was born here, being a 
daughter of Mr. Chas. Lutwidge, who was connected with the Custom 
House for upwards of forty years. In 1827 the parents of " Lewis Carroll " 
were married at Christ Church in this town. There are aiso many other 
names which might be mentioned but we have not room to do so. 

The date when the introduction into Hull of the Booksellers, Printers, 
and Stationers took place is at present unknown, but I find that early in 
the 17th century the name of Wm. Fugill, stationer, is the earliest name 
to occur amongst my notes. Then follows John Goodricke, bookseller,, 
with whom Thomas Clarke served his apprenticeship, and who took up his 
freedom June 4th, 1702, and became a burgess. Richard Barnes, book- 
seller, and his son Jonathan Barnes, who took up his freedom on Oct. 16th, 
1697, and who is described on the burgess roll as " Bibliopola." Then 
onwards it is very easy to trace them, but the earliest Hull printed publi- 
cation is a Catalogue of Books (1735) which will be mentioned later on 
under Mr. Munby. 

The Ferraby's (1700-1848) were booksellers, printers, and stationers 
who had a shop situated in the Butchery (now Queen Street), and after- 
wards at 44, Market Place. There were four generations of them — two 
George's and two John's — who successively followed each other in the 
business. They carried on the business in the Butchery until 1803, in 
which year Mr. John Ferraby (junior) purchased some land in the Market 
Place, and erected the fine new premises, next to the Fleece Inn, which is 
now used as a jeweller's shop. During one hundred and fifty years the 
Ferraby's had an extensive business and published a large number of books 
and pamphlets. The earliest record (1746) I have, is a Sermon preached at 
Patrington in Holderness, on Thursday the 9th of October, 1746, Being the 
Day appointed to be observed as a Goteral Thanksgiving for the Suppression 
of the Late Rebellion, by Nicholas Nichols (8vo., 32 pp.). The next is a 
curious work by Malcolm Flemyng, M.D., entitled A Proposal for the 
Improvement of the Practice of Medicine, Illustrated by an Example relating 
to the Small Pox, The Second Edition, 1748. A copy is in the British 
Museum. They also published a large number of Chap-Books, among which, 
to mention only a few, are The History of a Doll ; containing its Origin and 
Progress through Life, with the various Calamities that befel it, N.D. [no date ], 
(fcp. 12mo., 32 pp.). Only one copy of this is known to exist. The Cries 






of a Wounded Conscience ; David's Repentance ; or, the Christian's Reliance 
upon God ; A Seasonable Word to Disponding Christians ; The Wise Men of 
Gotham ; Fatal Consequences of Licentiousness, a Sermon by Rev. John Scott, 
A.M., 1810 (8vo., 44 pp.). Mr. Scott was the son of Rev. Thos. Scott, the 
Commentator, and master of the Hull Grammar School. Mr. John Ferraby, 
the last survivor of this quartette, was born in 1767. His personal appear- 
ance was a little below middle height, full bodied, but not stout, and was of 
fair complexion. His dress, in summer, was a Quaker brown coat, buff 
waistcoat, ruffled shirt, knee breeches of drab kerseymere, white stockings, 
and buckled shoes ; and in the winter he wore long gaiters and a spencer 
overcoat. He was a familiar figure in the town, as on Sunday mornings 
he would walk up and down the promenade at the east end of Holy Trinity 
Church, talking with his friends, waiting for the service to commence. He 
died on March 2nd. 1848, aged 81 years, and the business ceased to exist, 
he being the last of the family. 

Thomas Ryles was a bookseller of considerable position in his day> 
for I find that he was elected Chamberlain of the Hull Corporation in 1718, 
and also held the office of Sheriff in 1726-7. He and Mr. Munby, his son- 
-in-law, were appointed in 1736 the sole agents in Hull and Beverley for 
the sale of The York Courant newspaper. Amongst other works he pub- 
lished Hildyard's " Sermon," Lincoln, Printed by John White, York, 
1706-7 ; Sermon Preached in the Cathedral Church of St. Mary, Lincoln, 
July 22, 1716, by Rev. John Clarke, London : Printed for Thomas Ryles 
(8vo., 30 pp.) ; " Select Colloquies of Erasmus, with English Translations," 
by Rev. John Clarke, 1720 and 1723 ; " Florus's Compendious History of 
Rome, with English Translation, and many other works. He was twice 
married, firstly on Jan. 25th, 1698, at Holy Trinity Church, to Susanna 
Harrison, who died April 22nd, 1704 ; secondly on Jan. 29th 1706, to Ann, 
daughter of Wm. Marsingale. Mary, his eldest daughter, was the third 
wife of the Rev. Wm. Mason, M.A., vicar of Holy Trinity, and father of the 
Rev. Wm. Mason, M.A., the poet and friend of Thomas Gray, author of 
" The Elegy in a Country Churchyard." Elizabeth, another daughter, 
became the wife of J. Munby, mentioned later on. 

John Mace, bookseller, whose name is often coupled with that of 
George Ferraby (junior) as publisher of several books between 1750 and 
1770, was also a man of position, being in 1760 elected Sheriff, and in 1772, 
Mayor of the Hull Corporation. The sixth edition of Rev. John Clarke's 
Eutropius's Compendious History of Rome : Together with an English Trans- 
lation as literal as possible. London : W. Clarke,* under the Piazza at the 
back of the Royal Exchange, 1750, was sold by J. Mace and G. Ferraby, 
Hull," etc. Sallust's " History of the Wars of Cataline and Jugurtha, with 
a Free Translation," 4th edit., 1755, was also published by him. 

Mr. John Munby, bookseller (" Bibliopola " ), had a shop in the 
Market Place, Hull, and also one at Beverley, a small market town situate 
nine miles north of here. He was the son-in-law of Thomas Ryles men- 
tioned above, and was born in 1707. He became a burgess of the town on 
March 6th, 1728, on the completion of his apprenticeship with Mr. Ryles. 
In 1735 he issued a curious " Catalogue of Books " (8vo., 8 pp.), a copy

Elixers, Hind's Cordial, Foster's Pectoral Elixer, his Fibrifuge Electury, 
which cures all agues ; and the Bottle for the Scurvey in the Gums and 
Teeth, which has given great satisfaction to most of the gentry throughout 
England, at Twelve-Pence per Bottle." 

Munby may also claim to be the first to establish a Circulating Library 
in this district. In Feb. 1740 he published the following advertisement 
in The York Courant. " At the request of several gentlemen in and about 
Beverley, he has provided a choice parcel of English Books, appointed 
and approved by such gentlemen, to be kept at his shop at Beverley, and 
to be lent out to be read by the subscribers only, for five years, from the 
29th March next, for 6s. a year ; one third of the subscription money to be 
spent in new books every year. Those who are desirous to become sub- 
scribers to this project may see a Catalogue of the books and a copy of the 
proposals and conditions at large at the said shop in Beverley every Satur- 
day, or at his shop at Hull every day, where subscriptions will be taken 
by the undertaker." In 1745 he published " Antiquities of Beverley Min- 
ster, by a Scholar of Mr. Lambert."* A copy of which I have never seen, 
therefore should like to know if there is one in existence at the present day. 
On Sept. 14th, 1732, Mr. J. Munby was married at Holy Trinity Church, to 
Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas Ryles. When he died I have not yet been 
able to ascertain. Mr. John Rawson, bookseller and stationer, who printed 
and published the earliest known newspaper in the town, had a shop in the 
Butchery (Queen St.) through the Fish Shambles. This paper, which first 
appeared on Nov. 24th, 1739, and continued for several years, was called 
The Hull Courant. It was a four-page folio, and with each issue was 
presented weekly to each purchaser a sheet of the " History of the Bible." 
On Jan. 12th, 1742, he removed to the Star, Lowgate, near the Market 
Place. He died Oct. 30th, 1787, and was succeeded by his son, Wm. 
Rawson, who under the style of Messrs. J. and W. Rawson, had previously 
carried on the business of letterpress and copperplate printers in Bishop 
Lane. In 1795 Mr. W. Rawson published " A New and Correct Tariff ; 
or, Book of Rates and Duties on Goods passing the Sound at Elsinore, 
in Denmark," which is probably one of the earliest books issued dealing 
with the subject of Tariff Reform. Mr. Rawson about this time took W. 
Bedford into partnership, and the firm became Messrs. Rawson and 
Co., and they removed to 13, Lowgate, and added a Circulating Library of 
5,000 volumes to their establishment, of which they issued a Catalogue 
(12mo., 168 pp.). On April 25th, 1800, this firm was dissolved, and Mr. 
Rawson took into partnership Mr. John Rodford. On Jan. 1st, 1804, 
Messrs. Rawson and- Rodford dissolved by mutual consent, and divided the 
business. Mr. Rodford carried on the bookselling and stationery, while 
Mr. Rawson devoted his attention to the printing business. Mr. Rodford , 
who is said to have been the last man in Hull who wore his hair in a pig-tail, 
was the son of Richard Rodford, of Beverley, where he was born, Dec. 1 1th, 
1773. In April, 1809, he removed to 54, and afterwards to 51, Lowgate, 
and carried on the business by himself until July, 1826, when he took his 
nephew, Wm. Stephenson, into partnership. For four years they carried 
on the establishment together, when on account of ill-health and old age, 
Mr. Rodford retired, and left it to Mr. Stephenson. Mr. Rodford died 
at his residence, Osborne St., Hull, Sept. 24th, 1834, aged 60 years. Mr. 
Stephenson in 1838 started The Hull and Eastern Counties Herald, as an 
advertising paper ; and in 1 852, The Hull News, both of which were publish- 
ed weekly by him until 1 866, when they passed into the hands of his son-in- 
law, Mr. James Alfred Cook. The Hull News is still issued by " The Eastern 
Morning News " Co., Ltd. Mr. Fred Clifford, who is on the editorial staff 
of The Times, was formerly a reporter on both these papers. Mr. Stephen- 
son died, Feb. 24th, 1866. Mr. James Plaxton succeeded to the business, 
and carried it on at Lowgate and Bowlalley Lane corner for some years, 
when he removed into Whitefriargate, where he took his assistant, Mr.

vears. 



Poster, into partnership, and the firm became Messrs. Plaxton and Foster. 
When Alfred Gelder Street was made a few years ago the firm removed into 
new premises there, and the name was again changed to Messrs. Plaxton & 
Co., and the business is still in a flourishing condition. Mr. Robert Gray- 
Battle, bookseller and ink manufacturer, for a number of years carried on 
that business in Manor Alley, Lowgate, and, afterwards, at 16 Paradise 
Place, Castle Street. He was born in 1752 and died, after a long affliction, 
on Sept. 4th, 1832, in the 80th year of his age. In 1791 he published the 
first " Hull Directory," and issued six other editions periodically until 
1820. It was a crown 8vo. (120 pp.). As a writing-ink manufacturer he 
was well-known, having travelled throughout the town and its neighbour- 
hood, selling his ink to the merchants. He used to carry the ink in a can, 
from door to door, like the milkmen at the present time take their milk 
round to the houses. Before blotting-paper came into use it was the custom 
to use sand, and Mr. Battle carried a supply of this as well as the ink, which 
he sold to his customers. The sand was sprinkled on the paper, and absorb- 
ed the ink, then it was brushed off. Some time ago, a gentleman told me 
that he, when a youth, well remembered Mr. Battle calling at their office 
in High St. to sell both ink and sand. The firm of M. C. Peck & Son, book- 
sellers, stationers, and printers, in the Market Place, which existed for up- 
wards of a century, has now gone, it having been dispersed. Mr. Robert 
Peck, who came from near Pocklington, in Yorkshire, commenced business 
at 31, Scale Lane.. He was born in 1764 and died June 9th, 1819. He 
became the printer and proprietor of The Hull Packet newspaper, now being 
issued as the Hull Daily Mail, and has changed from a weekly to a daily 
paper. Wm. Etty, the famous painter, served a seven years' apprentice- 
ship with Mr. Peck from Oct. 8th, 1798, and " while there he drew a ' Prin- 
ters bodkin ' on the Wall and would innocently ask a fellow companion to 
' reach him that bodkin ' from the mantel."* The printing business was so 
distasteful to Etty that he counted his latter days while thus employed, 
one by one, until the end of his servitude approached. In 1803 Mr. Peck 
printed " .Esop's Fables, New Versified from the Best English Editions, 
by H. Steers, Gent.," which was published by J. Harris, (successor to E. 
Newbery), corner of St. Paul's Churchyard. Afterwards the firm became 
Peck and Smith, and later (1833) it was carried on alone by Michael Charles 
Peck, who removed to 43, Lowgate, and bookselling was added to that of 
printing and stationery. Same years afterwards he took his son, M. C. 
Peck (junr. ) into partnership, and removed to 10, Market Place, where the 
business continued until the last of its days. While here they published 
" The New Hull Guide " (1869), reprints of " Gent's History of Hull " ; 
" Memoirs of Master John Shawe " ; a facsimile of Battle's " Hull Directory" 
(1791 ) and several other books. About ten years ago Mr. M. C. Peck retired 
and disposed of the business. 

The firm of A. Brown & Sons, Ltd., 26 and 27, Savile Street, 6 and 8, 
King Edward Street, also at 40, George Street, and 8, 11, and 15, Dock 
Street, with a branch in York and office in London, is one of the largest 
of its kind in the provinces. It was founded by the late Mr. Anthony 
Brown in 1860, who began business at 3,' Prospect Street, as bookseller; 
printer and stationer. He was born near York, his father being a farmer. 
He left the country for town, and was apprenticed to Mr. John Nicholson, 
bookseller, 48 Lowgate, with whom he remained several years after his 
apprenticeship expired. Mr. Brown then became head assistant to the 
late Mr. J. Mozley Stark, a new and second-hand bookseller, who was a 
scholar as well as a bookseller, and took journeys months at a time on the 
continent, buying literary treasures. These were mainly sold through 
catalogues in which Mr. Brown had a share in their compilation. When Mr. 
Stark removed to London, Mr. Brown remained and began business for 
himself. In 1863 he was joined by his eldest son, Mr. John Brown, and in 
1866 by his second son, Mr. Walter Brown. In 1878 the business was 
transferred to premises in Savile Street, specially built by Mr. Brown. His 
death took place in Jan. 1880. He was a bookseller who really did know 

* Gilchrist's Life of Wm. Etty (1. pp. 22-30). 



his business, a man of most genial nature, and had the regard of everybody. 
After Mr. Brown's death the two brothers continued the business which 
still developed, particularly on the educational side, the firm owning and 
printing a large number of popular school publications, as well as a number 
«>f valuable local and antiquarian books. Two years ago the business was 
turned into a limited liability company, and is managed with much vigour. 
Messrs. C. W. Holdich & Son, new and second-hand booksellers, is another 
old firm. Mr. Holdich was born in 1821, and was a son of James Holdich 
of Peterborough. He came here in the early forties, and commenced 
business as a printer and lithographer at 14 (now 9), Queen Street. After- 
wards he took up bookselling, and issued upwards of fifty catalogues of 
books in general literature. In 1854 Mr. John F. Foxton became his assis- 
tant, and afterwards manager, which position he held for twenty-three 
years. Mr. Foxton died in 1886, and in February 1887, Mr. R. C. Annan- 
dale became a partner, when the name of the firm was changed to C. W. 
Holdich and Annandale. Soon afterwards, Mr. Holdich retired, and died 
on Jan. 7th, 1892, since when, Mr. R. C. Annandale has carried on the busi- 
ness alone. He deals specially in books on engineering, seamanship, and 
nautical subjects generally. 

Second-hand bookselling in the city has now practically become a thing 
of the past, though in the olden times there were several noted shops. 
Hull, along with many other provincial towns has seen its best days in spite 
of the fact of its ever -increasing population and generally flourishing trade. 
Probably the innovation of Free Libraries, and the decrease of its book- 
collectors, may have had much to do with this decay. Among those who 
have passed away may be mentioned Mr. Robert Cook, who had a shop at 
58, Carr Lane. He was born in 1836, and after serving in the army for some 
3'ears, and going through the Crimean War, he commenced book-selling. 
For a time he had a stall in the Market Place, and later on opened a shop 
as above. He was a good business man, and had a wonderful knowledge 
of books and their values, and did a good trade. He died July 30th, 1896, 
aeed 66. Mr. James Farrell, who commenced as a travelling chapman, 
afterwards carried on business at 41 and 42, Savile Street. He was born 
in Dublin in 1814, and migrated to Hull, where for a number of years he 
had a fairly good business. He also used to attend sales in various parts of 
the country, on commission, for the late Mr. J. Mozley Stark. He died on 
May 25th, 1877, aged 66 years. Mr. John Mozley Stark, who was one of 
the greatest second-hand booksellers in his day, came from Gainsborough. 
He was the son of Adam Stark, printer and author of The- History of 
Gainsborough. In 1853 he commenced business at 64, Market Place ; in 
1 859 he removed to 30 Scale Lane, and in 1862, to 61 Whitefriargate. From 
1853 to 1862 he issued 45 catalogues, varying in size from 16 to 156 pp., a 
complete set, bound in 2 volumes, is in the possession of Aid. John Brown, 
bookseller, Hull. The fifth catalogue (1855) is probably the most interest- 
ing from a bibliographical point, as it contains a collection of " Ancient 
MSS., consisting of Bibles, Psalters, Breviaries, Missals, Rare Theological 
Treatises, etc., etc., on vellum and paper, chiefly from the Carthusian Mon- 
astery at Erfurt in Germany." Mr. Stark went to London about 1863, and 
had a shop in King William Street, Strand ; and latterly at 17, Garrick 
Street, where he continued in business until 1888, when he retired. 
Mr. J. R. Tutin commenced business here as an antique bookseller in 1881, 
in Savile Street, removing into Waterworks Street in 1887, where now 
(1908) the New City Hall stands, and in 1895, to Paragon Street. Having 
found that the pursuit of business was undermining his health, and also 
seriously interfering with bis literary studies and labours, he retired in 1898. 
After several years of rest and recuperation he has commenced business again 
at 189 Albert Avenue, Hull, as a publisher of early poetry and other works. 
Among his publications are the Orinda Booklets (1903-4), two series ; 
Pembroke Booklets (1905), two series ; Hull Booklets (1908), 8 nos. ; A 
Wreath of Christmas Carols and Poems, chosen and edited by the late Wm. 
Andrews (1906) ; Wordsworth Bibliography ; Shelley Birthday Book ; and 
others. 



Of the present day booksellers mention may be made of Mr. Joe Lynes, 
who has a shop in West Street, and a stall in the Market, behind Holy 
Trinity Church, which is the resort of collectors for miles round Hull. Mr. 
D. W. Edwards, who has been established since 1900, at 160, High Street, 
is also an antiquarian bookseller, and issues catalogues which circulate 
largely in the trade. His last catalogue (No. 15) 1st Sept., 1908, contains 
a list of Chap-books, Song Books, and pamphlets of a quaint nature. 
Old Maps and Plans is one of Mr. Edwards' specialities. His collection of 
country and general mars, dated from 1575, is one of the largest in the 
country. Mr. Waldemar Henius, 161, Spring Bank, antique dealer, has 
also been a dealer in books for many years. Mr. A. Whitworth, bookseller 
and picture dealer, 16, Bond Street, is also a dealer in rare books, prints, 
«tc. 

Of the libraries in Hull, past and present, besides those of Mr. J. Munby 
and Messrs. Rawson & Co., mentioned above, there are the following. The 
Lyceum Library and the Mechanics' Literary and Scientific Institution are 
both now dispersed. The Lyceum was established in 1807 in Parliament 
Street, and afterwards was removed to new premises in John Street, erected 
in 1835. In its day it was a fine library of upwards of 20,000 vols., but 
owing to improvements in the vicinitj^ the committee had to again remove to 
new quarters in Story Street — a street which was famous for having been 
the residence of Anne Porden, the poetess, and first wife of Sir John 
Franklin, the arctic explorer. In 1900 the library was wound-up, and the 
books # sold. The Mechanics' was founded in 1825, and Dr. John Alderson, 
a relative of Mrs. Amelia Opie, was the first president ; and after an exis- 
tence of over seventy-five years was sold by the shareholders. The Sub- 
scription Library, Royal Institution, was founded Dec. 7th, 1775. It 
commenced in a room over the shop of Mr. Wm. Browne, bookseller, 
Bowlalley Lane and Lowgate. who also was the first librarian. In 1800, the 
foundation-stone of the first building in Parliament Street was laid, and the 
library was opened in 1801. Here it continued until its removal to the 
Royal Institution. This building was jointly erected for the Literary and 
Philosophical Society, and the Subscription Library — the former occupying 
the eastern and the latter the western portion of the Institution. The lib- 
rary was opened on July 6th, 1855, and is one of the most valuable in the 
provinces, and contains upwards of 70,000 volumes. It also contains many 
valuable books in all classes of literature, and possesses a complete set of the 
Transactions of the Royal Society from 1671 to date ; Works of Chaucer 
(1602), Milton's Works, 2 vols., folio (1695-6J ; The Shahnamab, or " Book 
of Kings," 3 vols. ; Bateman's " Orchidaceae of Mexico " (1843) ; Gould's 
" Birds of New Guinea, Australia, Great Britain," The Humming Birds ; 
Book of the Gild of Bricklayers, Tilers, etc., established in Hull in 1598, 
a MSS. volume on vellum which formerly belonged to that Societj 7 , and 
many other equally interesting works. 

The Public Library Act was adopted on Dec. 10th, 1892, and there are 
a central and four branch libraries. The Central was erected in 1900-01. 
and was opened on Nov. 6th, 1901, by Lord Avebury. It is situate in 
Albion Street, and is built of red brick with stone dressings, in the Renais- 
sance style, from the design of Mr. J. S. Gibson. It cost, including site and 
fittings, .£20,000, and consists of two storie3, containing a spacious entrance 
hall, ladies' reading-room, magazine-room, librarian's and committee- 
rooms, lending library, newspaper-room, and large reference library. The 
Library possesses over 40,000 volumes, beside a very large Patent Library. 
There are also four branches, viz. : The James Reckitt, Holderness Road ; 
Western Branch, Boulevard ; Northern Branch, Beverley Road, and the 
Carnegie Branch, West Park, Anlaby Road. The income from the rates 
for 1907-8 is £4,814, and the total issues from all the libraries for the year 
ending March 31st, 1907, was 747,029. Mr. W. P. Lawton, who was ap- 
pointed in 1892, is the chief librarian. Adjoining the Central, on the right 
of the illustration, is the Hull Church Institute, which was founded in 1845, 
and it is located in what was formerly the private residence of tbe late 
Sir James Alderson, M.D., of Hull, who afterwards removed to London. 



The following article appeared in ' The Athenceum,' January 
9th, 1909, and is reprinted by the courteous permission of 
the Editor : 

■ POEMS BY TWO BROTHERS ', BY THE TENNYSONS 



THE second portion of the library of Mr. H. W. Poor of New York City, 
now in process of sale by the Anderson Auction Company, of 12, East 46th 
Street, New York, included an undoubtedly unique copy on large paper 
of the ' Poems by Two Brothers,' 1827. The importance of this was fully 
realized by Messrs. Anderson's cataloguer, and two pages are devoted to 
its description. As the Catalogue can be in the possession of but few collec- 
tors in this country, there is all the more reason for giving this particular 
entry a wider publicity than it could possibly enjoy through the medium 
of a book-sale catalogue. The literary interest of the subject would, how- 
ever, be of sufficient importance to warrant the extracts (given here 
" without prejudice ") which follow : — 

" It is the copy presented by Tennyson to his solicitor, C. R. Haddel- 
sey, of Caistor, Lincolnshire, and bears on the fly-leaf his name and ad- 
dress, written by the poet. The book appears to have been afterwards 
presented to ' Miss Charlotte Turquand from her affectionate friend, C. R. 
Haddelsey ' — this is written on the second fly-leaf. In addition, there 
is inserted a note from ' A. Tennyson,' viz. : — 

Dear Haddelsey, — I sent back the conveyances signed yesterday, 
and hope you got them safe. Make all haste to a final settlement. 

Ever yours, 

A. Tennyson. 

" The most interesting point in connexion with this book, however, 
is that it proves the poems to have been written not by two brothers, 
but by three ; and Tennyson has himself gone through each leaf and 
marked those by Frederick? by Charles, and by himself. 

" Appended is a copy of some inquiries which were made before 
purchasing the book, and also copy of the reply received. This makes 
the book of singular interest, because it corrects the errors madeinMac- 
millan's reprint of 1893. In that edition a number of the poems were 
attributed to Charles or to Alfred which this copy shows to be incorrect ; 
but as the present owner points out, they arrived at their conclusion, in 
the reprint, by an inspection of the manuscript, verified by the present 
lK)rd Tennyson. This evidence is not nearly so valuable as the evidence 
of this copy, as the marks in it were made at a time when Alfred Tenny- 
son's memory was clear and distinct on the subject. 

" The present Eord Tennyson, in his preface to the ' Poems by Two 
Brothers ' published in 1893, states : ' It is requested that none of the 
poems in this volume said to be by my father, and consequently signed 
A. T., be included in any future edition of his Works, as my uncle, 
Frederick Tennyson, cannot be certain of the authorship of every poem, 
and as the handwriting of the manuscript is known not to be a sure guide . " 

The correspondence in connexion with this copy consists, as already 
stated, of two letters. In both cases — the letter of inquiry and the answer 
— the names of the writers are suppressed, but these are not material. The 
first letter runs thus : — 



" I have received safely the copy of Tennyson which you were good 
enough to send me. I should like very much to purchase it, but before 
doing so there are one or two points which I should like to raise. Can 
you tell me any history of the book ? — in whose hands it has been all 
these years, or if you purchased it direct from the family to whom it 
was given ? Again, can you tell me who is responsible for the pencil 
note which appears on the half-title ? This note, you will remember, 
states to whom the book was given, and gives the different marks of the 
three brothers. Also, on comparing this copy of the ' Poems by Two 
Brothers ' with the reprint issued by Macmillan in 1893, I notice other 
points to which I would direct your attention. As to the Stanza on p. 1 , 
this is signed in your copy Frederick Tennyson, in the reprint the initials 
of Charles are given. 

" Page 67, ' Egypt ' is signed in your copy Charles, but in the reprint 

it says ' Begun by Charles, finished by Alfred.' 
" Page 90, ' Scotch Song,' is signed in your copy Alfred, and is queried 

in the reprint. 
" Page 109, ' The Deity ' signed Charles, is queried in the reprint 

Alfred or Charles. 
" Page 139, ' Epigram on a Musician,' signed Charles, is queried in 

the reprint. 
" Page 165, ' Thou cam'st to thy Bower,' signed Alfred, is not signed 

in the reprint. 
" Page 173, signed Charles, in the reprint queried Alfred. 

175, signed Charles, in the reprint queried Alfred or Charles. 

184, signed Charles, in the reprint queried Alfred. 

197, signed M. Who is M ? In the reprint signed Charles. 

209, signed Charles, attributed to Alfred in the reprint. 

210, signed Alfred, bears Frederick's name in the reprint. 

" These are interesting points which I should like settled before 
purchasing. Possibly you may be able to give me the information. 
The marks added to the poems, if made by Tennyson himself, should 
have settled any dispute as to who was the author of the various pieces, 
but the reprint was carefully edited from reliable information I take it, 
and so I do not understand how the divergence has arisen." 

The reply to this series of inquiries is as follows. : — 

" We fear we can do little to solve the difficulties which you mention. 
From inquiry we made at the time of purchase, we felt satisfied it 
had belonged to Haddelsey, that he gave it to Miss Turquand, in whose 
hands it remained till a recent date. If, as the latter owner believed, the 
marks were made while the book was in Mr. Haddelsey's possession, they 
were purposely made on good information, at a time when the memory 
of Tennyson would be of some value. The list in the reprint (' Poems 
by Two Brothers' — reprint — Macmillan, 1893) was prepared by the 
present writer from the original manuscript, entirely from handwriting, 
confirmed by the present Lord Tennyson ; some of those that were marked 
doubtfid, as to which of the two brothers wrote, were claimed by Freder- 
ick, the third brother. No one living has anything else than handwriting 
to go by ; and if the present volume is genuine, it is a strange confirmation 
of the accuracy of the list made from the manuscript. We do not think 
it likely that the difficulty which you note will ever be explained." 

It may be added that this copy formed lot 958 in the Poor Sale on 
December 9th. It does not appear to have passed through any auction sale 
in England, and was presumably sold privately. The original MS. of 
' Poems by Two Brothers ' mentioned above was sold at Messrs. Sotheby's 
in December, 1892, for £480. It consisted of 88 leaves, the greater part 
being in the handwriting of Alfred Tennyson. According to Mr. J. H. 
Slater (' Early Editions,' p. 307), this " MS. has since been resold at a high 
premium to an American collector."

COLLOQUIALISMS 

" Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm." — Emerson. 

" To be an enthusiast is to be the worthiest of affection, the noblest and 
best that a mortal can.be." — Wieland. 

These aphorisms are recalled as the result of some of my experiences 
in canvassing for the sale of tickets for the Association concerts and dinners 
In some instances the utter absence of enthusiasm for an idea is as appalling 
as in other cases support is gratifying. The idea upon which the Associa- 
tion is based is brotherliness. We have associated in order that the frater- 
nal feeling may be fostered. If no other purpose existed that alone would 
be full warrant for the founding of the Association. The feeling becomes 
crystallized in an Annual Dinner, which should be to bookselling what 
Christmas is to the family, viz., a function, or rite, in which every one 
should take part. Yet, reasons are advanced for not taking tickets which 
would be disheartening if one were not resolved that, blow hot, blow cold, 
the Dinner or the Concert shall be a success. One says he " never goes to 
anything of the kind." When you tell him that is just the very reason why 
he should go, he shakes his head and wishes he could shake you off as easily. 
Another opines that he cannot see what good there is in having an Associa- 
tion. He might just as well wonder what good there is in living, for an 
Association is the concentration of all the intelligence, the energy, the 
enterprise of a trade, focussed in one body for the common good. But 
they can't see it, although an Annual Report proves the good that is done 
even from the material point of view, letting alone altogether the moral 
good achieved by the fraternal feeling engendered. Enthusiasm in short 
is the greatest of all factors towards achievement. Do all things well, with 
grim determination to win, and — there you are. If you are only cleaning 
your own boots, as the Duke of Wellington used to do, "do it with enthusi- 
asm, and take care that the heels are more highly-polished than the toe-caps. 
That means good work, and self-respect. If you catalogue a book take 
care that the commas are in the right places, and that there are no capitals 
in the wrong ones. That means ditto. And when there is an Association 
of your own profession, take care that you support it vigorously and as a 
duty, making the burden of the work easier to those who undertake it for 
its own sake. Notwithstanding the few unenthusiastic ones, however, the 
fact remains that the Association is growing rapidly in membership, in 
influence, and in financial strength. 

* * * 

One discovery — and an important one — is the existence of a vein of 
humour such as was not even so much as suspected. The speeches of Mr. 
Stevens, Mr. Myers, and Mr. Tregaskis were especially notable in this 
respect, and the guests bubbled over with enjoyment while they were in 
progress. It was all so good that one wonders now how we shall possibly 
be able to "go one better " next year.

That old-established monthly trade-journal The Bookseller signalized 
the new year by appearing as a weekly publication, and in much improved 
and up-to-date form. Illustrations will in future be a feature, and special 
attention will be given to antiquarian bookselling, as evidenced by the 
excellent and very full account given of the Second Annual Dinner of the 
International Association of Antiquarian Booksellers, with a portrait of 
Mr. B. D. Maggs, and another of somebody else whom you know. From 
the same office appears also a new series of " Current Literature of the 
Month, with Occasional Notes and Illustrations." 

* " • * 

There were also very full accounts of the Dinner in The Publishers' 
Circular and The Clique, as well as in The Times, The Daily Telegraph, and 
The Morning Post. The speeches by Dr. Fortescue, Keeper of the Printed 
Books, British Museum, Mr. Barwick, Superintendent of the Reading Room, 
and Mr. Herbert Baily, Editor of The Connoisseur, were crowded with 
interest. 



Mr. Frowde's The Periodical for December contains a most interesting 
block of a printing office, about 1600. It can be obtained gratis, upon 
a pplication. «. » » 

The following is the name of a genuine book-buyer to whom catalogues 
may be sent :— Mrs. Asiel, 15 East 63rd Street, New York City, U.S.A. 
* * *. 

Through the kindness of Mr. F. Hockliffe, of Bedford, an extra plate 
is enabled to be included in the present part. It consists of reproductions 
of two curious portraits of old-time booksellers, from the original engravings 
in Mr. Hockliffe's possession. The first is that of John Nicholson, styled 
" Mappesiani Bibliopolii Cant. Custqs." of Cambridge, from a picure painted 
by Reinagle. The engraving was published at Cambridge in 1790. In 
the background is a view of Trinity College. Nicholson, alias " Maps " — 
he was known by this nickname — was a bookseller and stationer from 1752 
to 1 796. The nickname is really a second-hand one, being originally applied 
to Robert Watts, who started the first circulating library in Cambridge. 
It is said that Watts, when on his rounds, used to announce himself at his 
customers' doors by calling out " Maps ! " and this accounts for him being 
so designated. He died January 31, 1752, and left his stock to his only 
daughter. She soon after married John Nicholson, and the latter thus 
acquired the business and his father-in-law's nickname into the bargain. A 
Greek hexameter of him, in a free and easy version, reads :— 
The ' Varsity Gods ' they call him " Maps " ; 

He's Nicholson to other chaps ; 
This is what " Maps," (J. N.), preferred : 
Mappesiani Bibliopolii Custos. 
Nicholson's shop was originally one of a row of old-fashioned houses which 
blocked the east end of King's College, nearly opposite to St. Edward's 
Passage, and he lived there till he died in August 1796. His son succeeded 
him and remained there till 1807, and then removed to a house in Senate 
House Hill. Messrs. Bowes & Bowes now occupy the premises, which are 
naturally much altered. The foregoing details are due to the courtesy of 
Mr. Charles P. Porter, of Cambridge, writer of the article on Cambridge in 
B.A.R.Vol.4. The second portrait is that of "IsabellaTinkler, late Bookseller 
in Richmond, Yorkshire, 6th October, 1794, aged 92." No information 
can be obtained locally respecting this remarkable " character," except her 
burial certificate, which shows that she was buried on Oct. 9th, 1794, that 
her age was 92, and that she was a widow. The engraving was therefore 
undoubtedly published immediately after her death, and she must have 
been a notable personage in the district for it to have been thought worth 
while to issue it. # * * 

The following correction should be made with the pen. In B.A.R. 
Vol. 2 (page 266), a copy of Ben Jonson's Works, 1616, is recorded as 
selling for £29 10s. It should be added that it was on large paper. The 
omission occurred through the fact being relegated to a note in the sale- 
catalogue, instead of being in its correct place in the description. 

* * * 

T.P.'s Weekly, Nov. 27, 1908, contains an article entitled :' The Second- 
hand Book Famine in London," with reference to Charing Cross Road, Red 
Lion Passage, etc. In connexion with this matter it occurs to one that 
the Public Library will never starve out the second-hand book-shop, because 
all the mystery and pleasure of never knowing what is going to turn up on 
the stall is unenjoyed by the habitue" of the Library. In the latter case you 
go with the definite object of borrowing a certain work, which, nine times 
out of ten, so people tell me, is " out," whereas when searching a bookstall 
you come across books you never heard of before, but the acquisition of 
which you would not have missed for anything. 

* * * 

Books occasionally occur with the plates disfigured with the stamp of 
some institution or library. Hitherto there has seemed to be no satisfactory 
remedy. The stamps can, however, be removed perfectly with a piece 
of typewriter eraser, costing threepence. Care must of course be taken not 
to rub too heavily in one spot, or a hole in the paper may be the result. 



The following is culled from an article on " The Village Library " by 
a librarian. Some subscribers might do worse than have it written in bold 
type by a ticket -writer, then framed and hung over the bookstall : — " It 
must be understood that the low-priced book is not always the cheapest, 
and as a rule a good edition of a book second-hand is much to be preferred 
before a low priced poor-quality reprint." 

* * * 

A note often occurs in sale-catalogues to the effect that two engravings 
in ' Italy, a Poem,' by Samuel Rogers are reversed in position, such " state " 
occurring only in the earliest copies. But the note never states which are 
the engravings in question. They illustrate the poem " Arqua." One 
vignette is of a tomb, the other of a house. In the first state the house is 
at the head of the poem, the tomb being at the end, and copies with the 
engravings in these positions are of course the more valuable. Later, the 
positions were reversed. Instead of trusting to memory to find this note 
when required it should be copied and inserted in Lowndes opposite the 
entry of Rogers. 

* * * 

Mr. E. M. Cox writes to ' The Athenaeum ' on January 16th as follows : — 
" I have a copy of Habington's ' Castara,' 4to., 1634, which collates as 
follows : A to L in fours, L4 blank, followed by leaf of errata, with errata on 
recto. I have not been able to trace any other copy, except one in the 
Museum, with the leaf of errata ; and I can find no other copy with the 
blank L4. It is only a small point in bibliography ; but as the book is very 
rare I thought it might be of interest. - Perhaps some of your readers may 
have seen a copy like mine." Put this note also in your Lowndes. 

* * * 

Twice last year statements were made that there were omissions in 
B. A.R. of lots that should have been included. In the first case I requested 
a list of such omissions, in order that the defect might be remedied. The 
list has never reached me, although some months have elapsed. A similar 
request in the second -case has had the same result, and the only omission 
(now printed in this Part [see Underbill] ) was discovered by myself. When 
in fact, exr mination is made of the reasons for omission of any particular lot 
those reasons are at once apparent. The book is so imperfect as not to be 
worth recording ; or, the lot proves to be a " composite " lot, viz., con- 
taining two or more books in one volume, and thus affording no criterion 
of value. In short, an attempt is made to make the plan of B. A.R. perfect 
as far as giving all information that is useful is concerned. 

* * * 

Occasionally — very occasionally — a small country bookseller will write 
" Do not send any more unless I order it." I then find that he has a com- 
plete set, and thinks he has enough and can spare his guinea per annum. 
This reminds me of a man I once knew who insured his plate-glass windows 
for seven years, and then ceased to do so because he had never had a 
breakage. The very next day a truck broke a pane which cost him £10 to 
replace. B.A.R. is in fact an insurance of a guinea per annum in favour 
of the chance of making £50 in one coup, besides being of invaluable 
daily assistance, and the man who drops his subscription is not a wise 
virgin. Of course I want your subscriptions, but you need B.A.R. still 
more. Several of the larger firms subscribe for two copies, one for the head 
of the house and another for the assistants, thus saving time. 

* * * 

A recent order was for a complete set of B.A.R., with instructions to 
continue, from the Public Library, Toronto, Canada. This is where B.A.R. 
is going to be so useful to its bookseller-subscribers. The Toronto people 
see a notice of a catalogue in B.A.R. and they say " That's just the firm 
likely to have the book I want," and they write straight to that firm. At 
least that is how I figure it out, and I believe I'm right.

NOTES FROM SOTHEBY'S 

Being a compilation of 2,032 Notes from Catalogues of 
Book-Sales which have taken place in the rooms of 
Messrs. Sotheby, Wilkinson. & Hodge, between the 
years 1885-1909, Edited by Frank Karslake. Square 
8vo., handsomely printed "on thick paper, with large 
margins, and having a frontispiece of the Amherst Sale, 
drawn on the spot, with key-plate of names. 

£l 5s.net. (£1 Is. to Booksellers.) 



' Notes from Sotheby's ' will go to Booksellers and Public librarians through- 
out the world. The wonderful amount of interesting information which it con- 
tains will make it as valuable as a work of reference fifty years hence as it is to-day, 
and it will consequently be preserved and be constantly referred to. The ' Notes ' 
arc arranged in a single alphabet, thus avoiding the necessity for an Index, and 
allowing of instantaneous reference. In the course of some criticisms upon the 
methods of cataloguing, published in volume 3 of ' Book- Auction Records,' there 
appeared the following paragraph : — 

" In some respects the work of the compilers of auction-catalogues is 
admirable. I mean in the matter of notes, the patience, industry, and 
research in the compilation of which are of invaluable service to the biblio- 
grapher, the bibliophile, and the bookseller." 

It can only be repeated that the statement is fully justified by the result of 
selection, and that the volume should be in the hands of every person interested 
in literature. 

The sales represented commence with that of the stock of the late Mr. F. S. 
Ellis, November 16th to 27th, 1885, and end with that of the Library of Lord 
Amherst of Hackney, in December, 1908, and March, 1909. The notes from the 
Kilis catalogue are among the most valuable in the volume, and there is no doubt 
that many were from the hand of Mr. Ellis himself — one of the most cultured 
booksellers of his time. In 1885 no publication existed recording book sales, and 
the notes in the catalogue referred to would have to be sought for in the British 
Museum but for the place they find in this compilation. It is sufficiently well- 
known that the Amherst Sale is the most notable of its kind that has yet occurred 
in the present century, and it was thought that a drawing of the scene would form 
an appropriate frontispiece to the present volume. The sketch, made by Mr. 
John Rowlands while the sfle was in progress, possesses special interest from the 
fact that it includes Lord Amherst himself, who was present upon the occasion, 
and that within a few weeks of the first part of the sale the death of that lamented 
bibliophile took place, viz. : on January 16th, 1909. Mention is made that a 
key-plate of the frontispiece precedes it, as it might otherwise easily be overlooked. 
The figures which are not named are those of the general public. 

Entries under the dates May 21 to May 24, 1906, formed part of the Sale of the 
Library of Mr. R. C. Fisher, of Midhurst, Sussex. The library was sold privately 
after the catalogue had been printed, and therefore no records of prices of these 
particular entries exist, nor, of course, do the notes appear elsewhere than in the 
catalogue and here.

bound in cloth, top edges gilt, New York, 1901-1905. Price £8. 



The notice of Public Librarians is particularly directed to this work. It consists 
of eight volumes, of 800 pages each, together with 250 portraits. The plan of the 
work is 3s follows * - ■ 

VOLUME I. Period 680-1638 VOLUME V. Period 1825-1854 

VOLUME II. Period 1639-1729 VOLUME VI. Period 1855-1874

VOLUME IV. Period 1785-1824 VOLUME VIII. Period 1891-1904 

Indsxes to authors and to critics — 200 page* — in Volume VIII. 

Nearly a quarter of a century has been devoted by Mr. Moulton and his co- 
labourers to the building of this work. 

It presents, in chronological order, scholarly studies of the lives and works of all 
authors who have made significant contribution to English literature, from the 
beginning in the seventh century up to nineteen hundred and four. 

All worthy criticism of the works of these t authors through the successive 
centuries, together with interesting facts illustrative of the lives and times, garnered 
from over 30,000 volumes, form the material of which these studies are composed, 
space being allotted in each case in accordance with the author's importance in gen- 
eral, and the particular importance of each work. 

The original text is adhered to in all cases, and the source from which it comes 
is accurately given — the assembled data and criticisms forming, practically, the 
verdict on each author's works, by a jury of his peers. 

The most complete and most authentic history of the literature of the English 
language. 

An unrivalled compendium of literary criticism and literary bibliography, and the 
only exponent of the evolution of the art of literary criticism. 

A most valuable time-saver to the literary worker, librarian, teacher, student, 
and man of letters generally, presenting in collected and readily-available form 
material of fundamental value that can otherwise be obtained only through long and 
laborious research. 

These estimates, by the great masters of expression, are themselves literature 
of a very high order. 

It does not duplicate any other work. 



The following Public Libraries in Great Britain already possess " The Library of 
Literary Criticism " : — 

Birmingham Free Library, Brighton Public Library, Chelsea Public Library, 
Croydon Public Library, St. David's College Library, Lampeter, Leeds 
Public Library, British Museum, Manchester Public Library, Newcastle-on- 
Tyne, Sheffield Public Library, Swansea Public Library, Edinburgh Univer- 
sity, and Mitchell Library at Glasgow. 
Also an immense number of Public Libraries in the United States have subscribed 
for it. The Philadelphia Public Library for instance, has the work at every one of its 
branches, and the New York Public Library has the work at more than twenty-five 
branches. It should, in fact, be in every Public Library in the World. Every libra- 
rian, every editor, and every journalist would find the work invaluable, and we do 
not hesitate to say that a set ought to be in the editorial office of every publishing 
house.

The Libraries of Leicester 

By FRANK S. HERNE 

(Librarian and Secretary of the Permanent Library) 

flS^HK Borough of Leicester deserves honourable mention as being one of the 
^^ pioneers of the Free Library Movement. Mr. Edward Edwards, in hi.s 
" Memoirs of Libraries," chooses the Town Library of Leicester as one 
of three to represent the older Municipal Libraries of England which, early in the 
seventeenth century, were founded either by private munificence, by Corporate or 
public contributions, or by both combined. The Libraries named are those of 
Norwich founded in 1608, Bristol in 1614, and Leicester in 1632. But the connec- 
tion of a Library with Leicester dates considerably further back than 1632, for 
in the middle of Elizabeth's reign the leading Puritans of the district, desirous of 
promoting a knowledge of Scripture and the sound doctrines of the Reformation, 
placed a few books of a suitable character in the belfry of St. Martin's Church " for 
the help and benefit of ministers and scholars," to which the townsmen had free 
access. The building in which the Library is housed is known as the Old Town 
Hall, and, so far as the room itself is concerned, it originally formed the residence 
of the four chantry priests, or chaplains of the Corpus Christi Guild, and was alt- 
ered for the purposes of a Library in 1632. Parts of the original fabric of the 
Guildhall remain, and after its purchase by the Corporation in 1563 a handsome 
Hall was added in which formerly Assizes were held, and in which, according to a 
persistent tradition, Shakespeare presented one of his Plays — watched by Queen 
Elizabeth herself. The whole of the Municipal business of the Borough was 
transacted in the Guildhall from the reign of Henry VII. down to 1874. 

The old gabled building, formerly the Chantrj'-house, stands on the western 
side of the Church, divided from it by a narrow passage, and is at the east angle 
of the ancient Guildhall. The Library is square, well-lighted and lofty — '"spa- 
cious but not inelegant " one annalist calls it, and is approached by a door in the 
aforesaid passage opening upon a flight of steps. The weighty folios are ranged 
on two sides of the room, and the whole aspect of the place is quaint and old 
worldish. Prior to the provision of this building the books had been removed 
from the belfry to the chancel of the Church, but as this was deemed a desecration 
of the sacred edifice the authorities were doubtless influenced to provide other 
and more suitable accommodation. 

Mr. John Angell, Minister Conf rater of Wigston's Hospital and afterwards 
Public Lecturer at St. Martin's, displayed much zeal and interest in the matter, 
indeed it was at his instance that the books were properly housed. A chronicler 
says of him : "he was a speciall and liberall benefactor and well wisher to this 
Librarie ; and did not onely excite and stirr up many, both Divines and gentlemen, 
to offer and extend their guiftes to this Treasury, but was a pattern and example 
himself, to do that which he persuaded others to doe." Mr. Angell — " a good 
scholar, and a sound divine " — was held in high esteem by the Puritans, but in 
1634 he was suspended by the Dean of Arches for preaching without a license. 
In 1645 he appears to have been a prisoner at Leicester. About 1651 he was 
dismissed the Confratership for declining to sign the " Engagement " of the In- 
dependents, and was appointed by the Mercers' Company of London, as Lecturer 
at Grantham, where he died in 1655. 

The Bishop of Lincoln (John Williams, afterwards Archbishop of York) was 
also associated with the transference of the books to their present home. In a 
letter addressed to the Mayor dated Sept. 18, 1633, he says : "I thank you right 
heartily, and all the town of Leicester, for your great care and charge in pro- 
viding and adorning so convenient a place for the Library there ; and especially 
for your resolution, upon the motion I made unto you, to return the old room unto 
that religious use it was formerly builded and designed for, which is to be the chan- 
cel or choir of your fair and beautiful church. I pray you take your own time 
between this and All Saints' to remove the books into the new place provided for 



them. * * * * Now for the business of the Library : if you shall be pleased to 
make as good a stipend as you can spare for the keeper thereof, I do not doubt 
but by the uolik-in \ss and charity of the nobility, gentry and clergy of the County, 
i be stalls will fill apace, and that you shall receive much comfort every way from 
this worthy and pious work of yours. I have, according to myfpromise, sent mv 
poor mite of £10 to help to furnish the part of a stall, and write my letters to 
excite others to do the same." This donation was equal to at least £50 of our 
money. 

A ml;ii opposite the door informs all who enter that : " This Library was 
built in the year 1632, at the expense of the Corporation of Leicester, upon the 
motion of the Right Reverend Father in God, John, Lord Bishop of Lincoln, and 
by the promotion of Mr. John Angell, Public Lecturer of this Borough," etc. It 
is satisfactory to think that in the early and troublesome days of the 17th centurv 
there were those in the Corporation who were sufficiently enlightened to be not 
unmindful of the literary needs of the scholarly dwellers in this ancient and honour 
able borough, and who afforded them facilities for study by founding, furnishing, 
and maintaining a Library at the public charge, though the literary fare provided 
consisted of ponderous tomes of theology, mostly in the Latin tongue, with an 
occasional variant in Greek. It is probable that the books with their chains were 
removed from the Church before November 1633. 

The Churchwardens' Accounts of St. Martin's contain a number of interesting 
items of expenditure on behalf of the Library from 1587 if not earlier. In 1634 
for instance, there is ar item of 6d. for " wareninge the parishioners to meete about 
the Librarye," and as a result a considerable sum of money was raised " and was 
bestowed in bookes." The Hall-books of the Corporation, and especially the 
Chamberlains' Accounts, contain many records concerning the Library and the 
building generally, for instance in 1630 £18 9s. Od, was spent in the purchase of 
24 volumes of Anti-Romanist theology. In 1632-3, £10 15s. 3d. (about £60 of 
present value) was spent on repairs and furniture, and to cover the cost of 
removal of the books, and the usual " bread and beere." In 1637, £224 14s. 3d. 
(£1 ,100 of our money) was spent on " Newe building," some of which undoubtedly 
covered charges on the fabric of the Library. Even before 1630 there are records 
of gifts of books, the appointment of keepers, the purchase of books, coincident 
in point of time with similar entries in the Church accounts and for necessary 
repairs. In 1733, and again in 1775, the Library was " beautified." In 1757 the 
Common Hall " ordered that the books in the Library be put in their places and 
kept locked as usual as soon as conveniently may be." In 1796 a recommendation 
was made to the Mayor, by Mr. Richard Weston, a threadhosier of Leicester who 
took much loving interest in this ancient institution, desired its improvement, and 
hoped to see its usefulness extended, " that the chains affixed to most of the books 
cause great damage to the binding, and ought to be taken off." When they were 
taken off is not known, but it was certainly later than 1826 ; there is no trace of 
them now, and the bindings are generally in a good state. 

The first librarian was Francis Peck, who was appointed hi 1628 at a 
yearly stipend of 20 nobles. 

The number of books in the old parochial library removed from St. Martin's 
Avould probably be about 100 volumes, and from a list of donors extant it might 
be estimated that another 300 were added prior to 1645, when the library was 
enriched by a most generous bequest which included some of its choicest treasures. 
Under the will of Thomas Hayne, M.A., a native of the County, Leicester received 
several legacies, among them being "All his books in his own Librarie (except a 
few bequeathed to the Public Library of Westminster) amounting to the number 
of 500 and above, being worthy books, both divine and morall, Also many antient 
and modern chronicles and histories.books of Philosophic and Poetrie. Dictionaries 
of divers sorte, Tractates and Treatises of which divers weare sett forth, penned 
and put into print by the sayd Thomas Hayne with the addition of his name to 
same books. To be kept and reserved for ever in the Public Library at Leicester." 
He also left £4 (equal to £20 now) towards the cost of bringing the books down 
from London. Mr. Hayne was educated in Leicester, and in 1 599 at the age of 
seventeen matriculated at Lincoln College, Oxford, and ultimately became in 
1608 usher at Christ's Hospital. He is described as a " noted critic, an excel- 
lent linguist, and a solid divine, beloved of learned men, and particularly re- 
spected by Selden." Among other charitable acts he founded and endowed a 
school at Thrussington for the education of fifteen children. He died on July 



xxvu. 

27, 1645, and was buried in Christ Church, London. The books bequeathed 
included the cursive MS. of the New Testament known as the Codex Leicestren- 
s».s, which belongs to the 14th Cent. It is on the whole in an excellent state of 
preservation, and is a beautiful specimen of caligraphv. Mr. Angell compiled a 
MS. Catalogue in 1650. Another Catalogue in MS. dated 1669 is still extant. A 
printed Catalogue prepared by Thomas Combe, junr. (of whom later), about 
1837, is very scarce, while only two years ago the Ven. Archdeacon Stocks, with 
others, carefully examined the whole of the remaining books in the Library, and 
catalogued them in a very scholarly manner. (I have myself examined most of 
the books, and published an account of the Foundation and some of its principal 
contents in 1891 ). 

It scarcely need be said that the library in course of time became neglected 
and starved ; many books both valuable and curious were severly damaged and 
destroyed, and a large number are now missing. To-day it is simply one of the 
sights of the town — only of interest to the antiquary and the lover of old-world 
things. It is redolent of forgotten memories and musty theological controversies. 

There are perhaps more than 1 000 volumes on the shelves, and among them 
are some rarities. The few MSS and some books that the Library once possessed 
besides the Codex are now in the Muniment Room of the present Town Hall. Thev 
are Stanlay's Biblia Latino. (15th Cent.) ; Wycliffe's Epistolae (15th Cent.)'; 
Miscellaneous MSS. of the 13th and 14th Cents. Among the printed books are a 
Missale ad usum Ecclesiae Sarum, 1519 ; Robert Stephens' Greek Testament 
[1550] (this is the first Testament printed with verses) ; and Eliot's New Testament 
in the Indian Language, 1661. Space will not permit me to name many of the 
books in the Library, though of course Theology is the subject most strongly re- 
presented, and that of the Reformers in particular. The Bibles include Walton's 
Polyglott, 1657, with the Commonwealth Dedication ; Tremellius, Junius and 
Beza's Protestant version, Wechel, Hanovh., 1623 ; also Wechel's edition of the 
LXX and New Testament in Greek 1582 ; the New Testament (Vulgate) with 
Notes by Montanis, 1619 ; the LXX version of the Old Testament, 1628 ; the 
Cambridge edition of the New Testament, 1542; Biblia Hebraica (no date) ; Biblia 
Sacra Polyglotta, Hutteri 1599 ; while of English versions there are " Cranmer's," 
1553; "The Bishops'," 1595, the " Treacle Bible " ; and the "Genevan" version, 
1 599. The books printed in the 1 5th century include Anthoninus Florentinensis, 
Summe pars Tertia, 1488 ; Antonius de Butrio, Prelatorum, 1485 ; Johannes de 
Imola, Opus in Clementinas, 1480 ; Thomas de Argentina, Sententiarum, 1490 ; 
Legenda Aurea [1476], a very early instance of the use of a title page, Gerson 
Opera, 1494 ; Herp's Speculum, 1481 ; and a very rare book Abbreviaturae, Peter 
Level [1490]. Controversial Theology has a very considerable place in the Library 
but calls for no special mention. Among the rare books and tracts one may notice 
" The Seduction of Arthington " by Hackett, 1592 ; "Cygnaeus On the Rosicru- 
cians," 1619; an editio princeps of "Athenaeus " in folio, Aldus 1514 ; and Kirste- 
nius's,"Grammatica Arabica," 1607, one of the choicest books in the whole collec- 
tion. There is a rare collection of Tracts printed at Basle in 1561, another choice 
volume is " Pharmacopoeia Bruxellensis," 1641 ; while among the school books 
there is a Latin Grammar with Ben Jonson's undoubted autograph and motto. 
There are other very interesting autographs, including that of Thomas Hayne in 
the Codex and emendations in the books, all of which add to the human interest 
of a collection which, when it was founded, was a modern Library, but is now a 
relic of the far-off past. 

In the year 1790, on July 30th, the Subscription Library known as the Per- 
manent Library was founded by Richard Phillips, then a bookseller and stationer. 
He came to Leicester in 1788, and shortly afterwards opened a pamphlet-room 
at his shop, situated at the corner of Humberstone Gate and Gallowtree Gate, 
where the Works of Tom Paine and others who espoused and defended the cause 
of the French Revolutionaries could be bought or perused. This room became the 
resort of all who had a taste for literature, and out of it most certainly sprang the 
idea of establishing a Literary Society and the formation of a Permanent Library, 
of which we presently hear, in the Journal of the day. In August, 1791, the first 
annual dinner of the Society was held. The notice convening the meeting is 
signed by R. Phillips, Secretary and Librarian. Phillips was in many respects 
an extraordinary man. His life was an exceptionally busy one; full of anecdote and 
accidents. He was always devoted to literature, and while in Leicester started 
several literary ventures, among them being the Leicester Herald, a rather valuable 



xxvin. 

property, in connection with which the story of " Dutch Mail " is told. Hi> ex- 
treme opinions and strong and outspoken sympathy with the French Revolution 
made him a marked man. In 1793 he was indicted at the Sessions on the charge 
of sedition and for selling Paine's/rtgA/s of Man and The Jockey Club to an informer, 
and being found guilty was sentenced to eighteen months' imprisonment in 
Leicester gaol, The sentence was deemed vindictive and severe, but he served it 
all but two days. In November 1 795 a disastrous fire broke out in his neighbour' s 
shop, which completely destroyed Phillips' premises and the entire plant of his 
newspaper and printing office, and of course the Permanent Library. Shortly 
after this he removed to London and opened a bookseller's shop in St. Paul's 
Churchyard, and started the Monthly Magazine in July 1796. Becoming success- 
ful he was elected one of the Sheriffs of London, 1807; was knighted by George III. 
in 1 808, and became bankrupt in 1819. He however retrieved his fortunes and for 
a number of years a deluge of elementary class books poured from his publishing 
house under a variety of pseudonyms, which he acknowledged were used to hide 
his own identity as Editor, in a Million of Facts which he published in 1832. 
Long after the copyrights of his school-books had passed out of his hands they 
were known as " Phillips's Educational Works," and were published by Whitaker 
& Co. His Million of Facts was published by Ward & Lock. Sir Richard'.s 
many publications enabled him to retire from business and spend the declining 
years of his life at Brighton, where he died on April 2nd, 1840, at the age of 73, 
leaving a widow, seven children, and a large circle of closely-attached friends to 
mourn his loss. One of his " happiest memories," so he told his friends, was his 
sojourn in Leicester, Anyway, apart from his endeavours there would have been 
no Permanent Library. 

Meanwhile, nothing had been done after the fire and the departure of Phillips 
to revive the Library till October 23, 1800, when Mr. Thomas Combe, bookseller, 
etc., summoned a meeting of all interested in the matter. His efforts were entirely 
successful. The Library was restarted and he was appointed Librarian. In the 
following February a list of the first books added, forming the nucleus of the 
present Library, was advertised, and again at intervals during the first few years 
other additions were announced. Many of these are still on the shelves. To Mr. 
Combe, next to Sir R. Phillips, a debt is due for the energy, public spirit, and 
enlightened zeal which he threw into the work of re-founding the Library, which 
to-day is " one of our most valued institutions." Mr. Combe was at this time 
living in Cheapside, having succeeded to the business of one T. Nixon in 1799. 
Besides the Permanent Library he had a Circulating Library of his own for the 
supply of fiction. This private venture, which continued in existence for many 
years, was in no way associated with the Permanent Library of which T. Combe 
was Librarian and Secretary, followed by his son, also named Thomas. They 
held the office between them for 38 years. 

In 1817 the business of Thomas Combe, together with the Permanent Library., 
was removed to Gallowtree Gate, almost contiguous to the place of its birth. 
Here the Library remained till 1838, when it was separated from Combe's bookshop 
on the establishment of a General News Room and the erection of a building 
which was specially k adapted to accommodate the Library, now fast becoming a 
flourishing institution. The Library was re-opened in its new home on J annal- 
ist, 1839, with 108 shareholders as members, and 3.000 volumes. 

About this time Mr. Combe, junr., relinquished business, went to Oxford, 
and was appointed manager of the Clarendon Press, a post which he filled 
with great ability and financial success, especially at the time when the monopoly 
in Bible printing held by the Press ceased. For his business services to the Uni- 
versity he was made an honorary M.A. Mr. Combe built a chapel to Oxford In- 
firmary, and also a church — St. Barnabas — in the low quarter of the town, and 
supplied part of the funds for the erection of another. He was a great lover of 
art, giving commissions for, and possessing amongst other pictures, Millais' 
" Return of the Dove to the Ark," and Holman Hunt's " Light of the World." 
This last work is now the property of Keble College, through the generosity x>f 
Mrs. Combe. Mr. Combe expired suddenly on Oct. 30, 1872, at the Clarendon 
Press, at the age of 75, having gained the respect and esteem of all who knew him. 

The Permanent Library has always suffered considerable disadvantage from 
never having possessed premises of its own. It remained in part possession of the 
General News Room till Sept. 1895, when, owing to the need for street-widening, 
the building, a very handsome one in the Ionic order of architecture, was about to 









be pulled down. The Library was then removed to much larger premises, within 
3 few yards of its birthplace, and for similar reasons had to be removed again two 
years ago to even larger rooms close to its middle-period home. 

The Library has no literary treasures, and none of the books are older than 
the closing years of the 18th century. It contains, however, an exceedingly 
valuable collection of books, and adds the very latest publications to its shelves 
immediately on issue. It is fully recognised as an important educational insti- 
tution, containing over 20,000 volumes in every department of literature. The 
main object of its original founders is never lost sight of — that it is a " Per- 
manent Library." The Librarian has also under his charge within the same walls 
the Libraries of the Leicester Medical Society, the Church House, the Leicester 
Society of Architects, and other sectional collections. 

One unique fact may be mentioned : the same firm of booksellers have during 
the 1 14 years of the Library's existence supplied practically the whole of the " per- 
manent " books. First, Richard Phillips, and then the business taken over by 
T. Combe in 1799, to which was subsequently added the well-known printing 
office established by his son. These are still carried on by their successors, 
Clarke and Satchell, on the same site since 1817, and they are the official book- 
sellers to the Library. 

The Free Library was established in 1870 in a large room, once the 
Mechanics Institute, acquired by the Corporation for the purpose. It grad- 
ually outgrew its bounds, till at length in May 1905 a very commodious and 
handsome building was opened by Mr. Andrew Carnegie, who had given £12,000 
towards the cost of erection and equipment. The Lending Library is 100 feet 
long and has accommodation for 40,000 volumes, the Reference Library upstairs 
is a spacious and well-lighted room, and will also hold 40,000 volumes. The 
Reading Rooms are lofty and admirably arranged, and in the basement there is a 
Patent Library and a Reading Room and Library for Juveniles. The Lending 
Library contains about 25,000 volumes, and the Reference Library, 19,000. 
There are six branch libraries and Reading Rooms, containing in the aggregate 
about 30,000 volumes. The Garendon Street Branch was the first to be opened. 
It was built and presented to the town by a former Mayor, Sir Israel Hart. 

Leicester is not noted, so far as its modern Libraries are concerned, for the 
possession of special collections or literary treasurer, as is the case with some towns. 
But the Town Museum contains a highly-important and comprehensive collection 
of Scientific Books and Transactions of Learned Societies which are accessible 
to students. The requirements of all readers are however adequately met, 
and so far as the Reference Library is concerned books of a technical character 
suited to the needs of a large manufacturing town are freely supplied. It also 
contains an extensive, valuable, and in many respects rare collection of Leicester- 
shire books, pamphlets, and maps. Altogether, the Municipal Library, since it 
has been in its new home, has materially increased its usefulness, and is doing a 
noble work in the busy town of Leicester. 

The second-hand book trade is represented by Murray's, Limited, Loseby 
Lane. This business was taken over from Mr. Wm. Withers, widely known 
as a connoisseur, some nineteen years ago. who himself had carried it on for a 
number of years previously. It has been managed by Mr. Chas. Feaks since its 
acquisition by Murray's, and is a successful concern. Catalogues are issued 
at regular intervals, the speciality being Leicestershire books. There is a good 
general business, a large catalogue connection, and an extensive export trade. 
Feaks is well known in the trade as Murray's representative. 

At the end of 1903 Mr. H. H. Peach started a business, dealing more particu- 
larly with MSS., Incunabula, early-printed books, and such others as would 
specially appeal to collectors. It was essentially a catalogue trade, and was fast 
becoming established and recognised when, owing to indifferent health, Mr. 
Peach was obliged to relinquish the business. Only quite recently it was purchas- 
ed by Mr. P. M. Barnard, and transferred to Tunbridge Wells. 

One of the recognised authorities in the second-hand book trade is Mr. Ber- 
nard Halliday, who for some years carried on business in Silver Street. The 
business was started by the late Mr. Thomas, but Mr. Halliday worked up an 
extensive and rapidly-growing catalogue trad^, which led him, within the last 
two years, to dispose of his shop and the bulk of his general stock, so as to devote 
his whole time to his wide-spread connection. He now carries on business from 
nib residence in Svkefield Avenue. 



COLLOQUIALISMS 

Swinburne's death is announced ; the greatest loss to English literature 
since the passing of Tennyson. I came into personal contact with him more 
than once. When I was a youngster of 20 my inductor into the art and mystery 
of bookselling, Mr. David White, who, happily, still survives at the age of 86, was 
on intimate terms with Mr. P. S. Ellis, the well-known bookseller of Bond Street, 
and, later, editor of the Kelmscott Chaucer. Just then Swinburne had written 
his pamphlet Under the Microscope, in answer to Robert Buchanan's Fleshly School 
<>/ Poetry, and Mr. Ellis had been asked, probably by Rossetti, of whose poems he 
was the publisher, to issue the pamphlet for Swinburne. After it had been printed 
Mr. Ellis, for some reason unknown to me, but probably because of the criticism 
of Tennyson afterwards to be referred to, did not wish to publish it, and he asked 
Mr. White to allow his name to appear on the title as the publisher. The request 
was acceded to, and when it was decided to cancel the offending leaf it fell to 
my duty to remove the cancels and replace them with the substituted leaf. I 
little thought at the time that a small page in the history of English literature was 
passing through my hands. One evening in particular recurs to memory. In 
1877 or 1878, when I was a bookseller myself, occupying the premises formerly 
Mr. White's, Swinburne came in with a catalogue of mine in his hand — for he 
confessed in a letter to Mr. Wise, to being " a bit of a bibliomaniac " — to buy some 
plays of the Elizabethan period ; plays then worth as many shillings as they are 
now worth pounds. He sat down at my table, and made me sit opposite him, and 
there he remained for two hours, talking divinely the whole time. Of course he 
talked " over my head," but nevertheless it was talk that I could appreciate, 
almost entirely about books. The fact that he should have honoured me by 
sparing two whole hours in which to talk about English literature is one of the 
remembrances of life worth dwelling on. More than thirty years have passed 
since that evening, but I can well remember his wonderful flow of diction, without 
a moment's cessation from first to last. What struck me most forcibly respecting 
his personality was the extraordinary excitability of his temperament, and his 
marvellous physical energy. During the two hours that he talked he never ceased 
to drum his fingers on the table, or to nervously handle and open the books which 
he was selecting, and there was absolutely no repose from the moment he sat 
down till he rose to go. 

* * * 

One characteristic anecdote that he related upon that occasion I remember 
distinctly, and there seems no harm in repeating it. A certain distinguished lady 
had asked him to go to her house one evening and read his poems to her. He 
did so, and, having made himself quite comfortable on a couch, he read, and read, 
and read. Presently his hostess became fidgety, but still he read and read. 
And he remained on that couch till dawn, reading poem after poem, and the lady 
was kept up all night. " She never again asked me to read my poems to her," 
he concluded. There seems something almost impish in such an act, which one 
cannot explain, and I can only give it just as he related it. 

* * * 

The following passage is from Mr. T. J. Wise's privately-printed Bibliographi- 
cal List of the Scarcer Works and Uncollected Writings of Algernon Charles Swin- 
burne, of which only 50 copies were printed, in 1897 ; 

Upon examining any copy of Under the Microscope it will be observed that 

D 5 (pp. 41-42) is a cancel-leaf. The original leaf was wisely suppressed, 

as certain of the expressions used in relation to the characters of Tennyson's 

Idylls of the King were unduly harsh. The following passage, describing 

" the courteous and loyal Gawain of the old romancers " as " the very vilest 

figure in all that cycle of strumpets and scoundrels, broken by, here and there, 

an imbecile, which Mr. Tennyson has set revolving round the figure of his 

central wittol " is unjust as well as severe. It is believed that only three 

copies of this cancelled leaf were preserved. 

I am permitted to add that Mr. Wise is preparing a Complete Bibliography of 

Swinburne, uniform with his incomparable Bibliography of Tennyson, of which 

atter I was one of the privileged recipients.

PRINTED IN SWINBURNE'S ' POEMS AND BALLADS,' 1866. 



The following note, also, is from Mr. Wise's Bibliography of Swinburne, and 
should be of use : 

" It is by no means unusual for second-hand booksellers to catalogue the 

first edition of the first series of Poems and Ballads with Moxon's title-page 

as " containing poems suppressed in later issues." ' 
This is apparently done in ignorance of the fact that in The Athenaeum, March 10, 
1877, there was printed a letter by Swinburne in which he stated that " . . not one 
syllable in any one copy ever printed of that book has ever been changed or 
cancelled since the day of publication." 

* * * 

It will be remembered that Infelicia, a volume of poems by Adah Isaacs 
Menken, has often been attributed to the authorship of Swinburne, but incor- 
rectly. It was published by John Camden Hotten, and in Mr. Wise's Bibliography 
there appears the following scathing paragraph from a letter written by Swinburne 
to him : 

" . . . . The moral character of the worthy Mr. Hotten was — I was about, 
very inaccurately, to say — ambiguous. He was a serviceable sort of fellow 
in. his way, but decidedly what Dr. Johnson would have called ' a shady lot ' 
and Lord Chesterfield 'a rum customer.' When I heard that he had died of 
a surfeit of pork-chops I observed that this was a serious argument against 
my friend Sir Richard Burton's views of cannibalism as a wholesome and 
natural method of diet." 

* * * 

By the bye, who, I wonder, is the ingenious gentleman who has, apparently 
not long since, reprinted the said cancel-leaf to Under the Microscope ? Anyhow, 
I had the entire bundle of cancels in my care for some months and then destroyed 
them, and doubtless Mr. Wise is correct in his surmise that only three copies of the 
pamphlet got out with the leaf in them. I know that it was just as the little 
brochure was being issued that Mr. Ellis became alarmed and took legal advice, 
with the result that has been stated. 

* * * 

Through the kindness of Mr. Wise I am able to give a facsimile of the Original 
MS. of A Song before Death, which appeared in Swinburne's Poems and Ballads, 1866 
and which is in Mr. Wise's possession. The portrait of Swinburne is from a 
photograph byMessrs. Elliott & Fry.

While Part I. of this year's volume of B.A.R. was passing through the press, 
a communication, signed by Mr. W. Roberts, appeared in The Athenaeum, January 
9th, respecting the Tennyson volume, Poems by Two Brothers. The article 
seemed to be of sufficient importance to warrant it being re-printed, and it was 
reproduced in B.A.R. An examination, at leisure, however, of Mr. Wise's Biblio- 
graphy of Tennyson makes it clear that the only absolute and undeniable authority 
upon the question of the authorship of the respective contents of Poems by Two 
Brothers is the original manuscript of the volume, which was sold at Sotheby's on 
Dec. 23rd, 1892. That manuscript was entirely in the handwriting of Alfred and 
Charles Tennyson.

The Story of Libraries and Book-Collecting, by Ernest A. Savage, will appeal 
to many bookmen. It is crowded with detail, and has an Appendix of the names 
of librarians and collectors, together with an Index. It is published at 2/6 by 

Routledge.

The Library for the Jaruary-March quarter, 1909, contains an account of the 
bibliography of Milton, by Mr. A. W. Pollard. Full details are given of the 
various " states " of the first edition of Paradise Lost, and The Athenaeum states 
that the article is " the most complete bibliography of Milton's first editions yet 
compiled." The article should be in every antiquarian bookseller's reference 
li brary. 



In future all editions of the New Testament, in whatever language, will be 
classed together in B.A.R., under the heading " New," being another step in 
the direction of simplicity of system.

If any of my subscribers would like to know how to save 70 % in their 
electric-light bills, I shall be happy to tell them how to do it. The saving is ao 
great as to make one sceptical at first, but my informant (whose name is well- 
known to you), has made electricity one of his hobbies, and thoroughly understands 
all the technical points, and speaks from his own experience of the saving effected. 
To those who use much electric light the reduction in expense is revolutionary, the 
superior illuminant being much cheaper than gas in its newest forms. The fol- 
lowing figures clearly illustrate the position. In one case the bills for Sept. and 
Dec. 1907 were £38 5s. Od. Under the new system, the bills for Sept. and Dec. 
1908 were £11 9s. Od. As my house is lighted by electricity from basement to 
roof the subject was of importance to me, and especially as waste in any form is 
one of my detestations, so I at once ordered the new system to be installed, and 
now pass on the information to my subscribers. My informant tells me that 
he not only lights his house with electricity, but that he also boils kettles with it, 
and uses heat radiators instead of fires, and finds both cheaper, as well as infi- 

nitelv more cleanlv, than gas or coal.

Thi> is the kind of letter that makes work enjoyable. It comes from Mr. 
Albert Britnell, the well-known antiquarian bookseller, of Toronto, Canada. 

" March 8, 1909. — Dear Mr. Karslake, I do not know that ' Notes from 
Sotheby's ' will be of any practical service to me, but as a small apprecia- 
tion of what you have done for the profession at large, I think the least 
that one can do is to enter their subscription for a copy of this book. 
Send it along. With all good wishes, Yours sincerely," 
I have never seen Mr. Britnell, and his letter is a convincing proof of the brotherly 
feeling that is spreading among the followers of our calling, and is adding so much 
to what Matthew Arnold termed " the agreeableness of life." Don't you think 
that, after this, if ever Mr. Britnell wanted my services on this side, in however 
small a way, I shoxild put my back, with the utmost delight, into the pleasant task 
of being usefid to him ? * „, * 

The same mail that brought Mr. Britnell's letter brought also the following 

from a New York subscriber : — 

" March 9, 1909 — Dear Mr. Karslake, The new number of that most useful 
of all publications, B.A . R. just to hand. I want to pay in advance for the 
vol. I am going to give myself the pleasure of calling on you this sum- 
mer. By the way, I want to join the International Association of 
Booksellers. May I ? " 

The italicised words were the writer's, not mine. It is the receipt of such letters 

as these that makes the daily post eagerly looked for, and a stimulation to the 

daily task. * * * 

Two minutes after the above paragraphs were written came a letter from a 
I,ondon bookseller from which the following is culled : — 

" The volume (' Notes from Sotheby's ') covers the period of " Dark Days " 

i.e. before the arrival of B.A.R. Very best wishes and many editions 

for the ' Notes.' " * * * 

A large sum is still due for unpaid subscriptions. In some cases, as all know, 
subscriptions are payable for the whole year in advance. This is not so with 
B.A.R. You are asked to pay only after receiving each part, and, payment ought 
to be made. In one case a man had received four volumes without remitting a 
single penny, and when, knowing that life was somewhat of a struggle with him, 
I suggested that he should regularly pay one shilling per week or return the 
volumes, he did neither ! So I had to send for them. In another case a man 
wrote that he could not pay but that he " did not want to return the volumes^ 
as they were so useful ! " However, 

There's a good time coming ; wait a little longer ! 

Ev'ry day that passes by B.A.R. grows stronger ! 

When it happens folk will say, " Well now ! Did you ever ! " 

And my sole response will be, " Well, really ! No ! / never ! "

liographically and Biographically, a Catalogue of a very Extensive Collec- 
tion of First and Early Editions of Old English Plays. This important and 
extremely interesting catalogue is far too extensive to quote any of its con- 
tents. It is worth possessing if only for the "Foreword " by Mr. Thomas 
Chatto, in which he declares that the assemblage of plays does not consist of 
a library bought en bloc but is the result of assiduous search and collection 
during a period extending over at least fifteen years. The " Foreword " is

all the care and completeness of an enthusiast, and the authors range from 
Addison to Zouche. The " Shakespereana " alone occupies 94 pages, and

Catalogue of Early Scotch History and Literature, and Old Science, mostly 
of the 16th and 17th centuries. Mr. Barnard's catalogues are worthy of 
ranking with those of the late Mr. F. S. Ellis, both as regards their method 
and the admirable taste with which they are produced, and the success of 
this comparatively new business proves that a love for the calling for its 
own sake is at least of as much importance as a long training for it.

items of Books, Atlases, Maps, Engravings, and Pamphlets respecting Asia, 
Africa, America, and Australia, from the Fifteenth to the Nineteenth 
Century ; handsomely printed in large type, with a Table of Contents. A 
list is also given of 16 other Catalogues of importance, of Manuscripts, 
Incunabula. Portraits. Autoeranhs. Genealogical Works. &c. &c. 






Naples, Italy. — Francesco Perrella, Museol 8.— Catalogue No. 68, Bibliotheque P 
A. Casella, containing 1353 items of the 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, 
Occult Literature, Bibles, Art Books, Classics, Philosophy, History, Phil- 
osophy, Spiritualism, &c. 

NewlYork City, U.S.A. The Anderson Auction Company, 12 East 46th Street.— 
Catalogue of the Library of Henry W. Poor, Parts 4 and 5, containing 
Masterpieces of Printing, Illuminated and other MSS., English Literature 
of the Elizabethan and later periods, a Rare Collection of the English 
Authors of the 18th and 19th Centuries, Illustrated and Extra-Illustrated 
Books, Association Books, and Artistic Bookbindings ; Americana and 
Private Book-Club Publications, with numerous plates, being reproductions 
of bindings, title-pages, &c. Parts 1-2-3 of this extraordinarily-interesting 
Sale were noticed in the previous No. of B.A.R., and there is nothing 
to add to the fact that it is one of the finest book-sales that have ever yet 
taken place in the United States. The complete catalogue should be valu- 
able. Also, a Catalogue of Rare Books, MSS., and Letters, including the 
Pine Collection of William Herrmann, with reproductions of rare titles and 
fine bindings. This, again, is a collection that demands the purses of 
millionaires to compete, for every volume appears to be a gem. For in- 
stance, there is a matchless copy of the first edition of Shelley's Queen Mab, 
a presentation copy,with the author's inscription, in the original boards, in 
pristine condition ; the Tennysons, the Cruikshanks, the extra-illustrated 
books, the choice bindings — including some of the Guild of Women-Binders, 
with whose work I am proud to have been personally associated, although 
it was not commercially successful — and other volumes that space will not 
allow reference to. Both are fine sales, and beautiful catalogues, worthy 
of the repute of the Anderson Auction Company. The " Poor " catalogue 
is so superlative that I shall give my copy the only dress it deserves — the 
choicest red morocco. • • •

TO PUBLIC LIBRARIANS, and others. FOR SALE: 

he Library of Literary Criticism 
of English and . American Authors 

Edited by CHARLES WELLS MOULTON 

Assisted by a Corps of Able Contributors, 8 vols., super imp., 8vo., strongly 
bound in cloth, top edges gilt, New York, 1901-1905. Price £8. 

The notice of Public Librarians is particularly directed to this work. It con- 
sists of eight volumes, of 800 pages each, together with 250 portraits. The plan of 
the work is as follows : — 

VOLUME I. Period 680-1638 VOLUME V. Period 1825-1854 

VOLUME II. Period 1639-1729 VOLUME VI. Period 1855-1874 

VOLUME III. Period 1730-1784 VOLUME VII. Period 1875 1890 

VOLUME IV. Period 1785-1824 VOLUME VIII. Period 1891 '904 
Indexes to authors and to critics — 200 pages — in Volume VIII. 

Nearly a quarter of a century has been devoted by Mr. Moulton and his co- 
labourers to the building of this work. 

It presents, in chronological order, scholarly studies of the lives and works of 
all authors who have made significant contribution to English literature, from the 
beginning in the seventh century up to nineteen hundred and four. 

All worthy criticism of the works of these authors through the successive 
centuries, together with interesting facts illustrative of the" lives and times, gar- 
nered from over 30,000 volumes, form the material of which these studies are com- 
posed, space being allotted in each case in accordance with the author's importance 
in general, and the particidar importance of each work. 

The original text is adhered to in all cases, and the source from which it corner 
is accurately given — the assembled data and criticisms forming, practically, the 
verdict on each author's works, by a jury of his peers. 

The most complete and most a\ithentic history of the literature of the English 
language. 

An unrivalled compendium of literary criticism and literary bibliography, and 
the only exponent of the evolution of the art of literary criticism. 

A most valuable time-saver to the literary worker, librarian, teacher, student, 
and man of letters generally, presenting in collected and readily-available form, 
material of fundamental value that can otherwise be obtained only through long 
and laborious research. 

These estimates, by the great masters of expression, are themselves literature 
©f a very high order. 

It does not duplicate any other work. 

The following Public Libraries in Great Britain already possess " The Library 
of Literary Criticism " : — 

Birmingham Free Library, Brighton Public Library. Chelsea Public 
Library, Croydon Public Library, St. David's College Library, Lampeter, 
Leeds Public Library, British Museum, Manchester Public Library, 
Newcastle-on-Tyne, Sheffield Public Library, Swansea Public Library, 
Edinburgh University, and Mitchell library at Glasgow. 
Also an immense number of Public Libraries in the United States have sub- 
scribed for it. The Philadelphia Public Library for instance, has the work at 
every one of its branches, and the New York Public Library has the work at more 
than twenty-five branches. It should, in fact, be in every Public Library in the 
World. Every Librarian, every editor, and every journalist would find the work 
invaluable, and we do not hesitate to say that a set ought to be in the editorial 
office of every publishing house.

NOTES FROM SOTHEBY'S 

Being a compilation of 2,032 Notes from Catalogues of Book- 
Sales which have taken place in the rooms of Messrs. Sotheby, 
Wilkinson & Hodge, between the years 1885-1909 Edited 
by Frank Karslake. Square 8vo., handsomely printed on 
thick paper, with large margins, and having a frontispiece 
of the Amherst Sale, drawn on the spot, with key-plate of 
names. £1 5s net. (£1 Is. to Booksellers). 

' Notes from Sotheby's will go to Booksellers and Public Librarians 
throughout the world. The wonderful amount of interesting information 
which it contains will make it as valuable as a work of reference fifty years 
hence as it is to-day, and it will consequently be preserved and be constantly 
referred to. The ' Notes ' are arranged in a single alphabet, thus avoiding 
the necessity for an Index, and allowing of instantaneous reterence. Jn the 
course of some criticisms upon the methods of cataloguing, published in 
volume 3 of ' Book- Auction Records,' there appeared the following 
paragraph : — 

" In some respects the work of the compilers of auction-catalogues is 
admirable. I mean in the matter of notes, the patience, industry, and 
research in the compilation of which are of invaluable service to the bib- 
liographer, the bibliophile, and the bookseller." 

It can only be repeated that the statement is fully justified by the result 
of selection, and that the volume should be in the hands of every person 
interested in literature. The following are the opinions of purcnasers 
and journals : — 
From a Purchaser. " My hearty congratulations on your ' Notes.' " 

„ „ " I am very pleased with ' Notes from Sotheby's.' It 

is a book which one can pick up at any moment 

and procure an immense amount of bibliographical 

information." 

„ „ " Enclosed please find cheque for ' Notes from 

Sotheby's. A very useful compilation." 
„ „ " It is a remarkable production, and as I know by ex- 

perience that any work of yours, editing or origi- 
nal, is always accurate, will you kinuiy let me 
have another copy, and the bill." 
„ „ " Enclosed I have pleasure in sending cheque for the 

book, and I hope it will meet with as much success 
as your labours over it deserve." 
From The Clique, Mar. 20, 1909. — " A very interesting compilation, and one 
which is sufficiently attractive to a bibliophile to be read Irom the first 
page to the last ... a work which will appeal to all lovers of books and 
bibliography, a work which in more senses than one will be found pro- 
fitable by all our readers." 
From The Bookseller, March 19th, 1909. — " Mr. Karslake has done the edi- 
torial work with his usual skill and judgment." 
From The Westminster Gazette, April 2u, 1909. — " A book of considerable 
value to book-collectors, booksellers, and bookmen generally. Mr. 
Karslake, who is, of course, an expert in this class of work, nas evi- 
dently expended considerable care on his task, and the result is in 
every way satisfactory." 
From The Daily News, April 16, 1909. — " The volume is, in many ways, a 

convenience." 
From The Morning Post, March 13, 1909. — " This volume ought to be of 
great service to the student of bibliography and to the connoiseur. It 
contains interesting information about rare editions of old books. For 
instance, we discover the title of the first book which mentions Queen 
Mary by name, and find many volumes not mentioned in Lowndes. 
Mr. Frank Karslake, the compiler, is well-known as the editor ot 
Book-Auction Records and as a careful bibliographer."

Literature and Libraries in Liverpool 

By S. WILLIAM MAY 
of the Liverpool Public Library 



CS^HIS short history can have no earlier beginning than the dawn of the 
^^ eighteenth century, for in the year 1700, 250 years after the birth of 
typography, no trace appears of the existence of a printing press in the 
town. There were neither printing press, bookseller, nor newspaper in existence. 
It is on record that in 1647 two dictionaries were ordered for the Parish School, 
and that they were to be chained to the desk or wall, so that the scarcity of books 
at this period may be well imagined. 

The first Liverpool printer we have any knowledge of is Samuel Terry, who', 
shortly after 1700, set up a small printing establishment in Dale Street, and we 
know that later he was in possession of a fount of Greek type. Terry was enter- 
prising enough to commence Liverpool's newspaper history in The Liverpoole 
Courant, issued in 1712. Only one number has been seen in recent years, and 
even this could not be traced for inclusion in the Sept-Centenary Exhibition of two 
years ago. The paper only existed a few months, and was probably killed by the 
introduction at this time of the first newspaper stamp duties. Terry has also the 
credit of printing the first Liverpool book in 1712, Hymns Sacred to the Lord's 
Table by Charles Owen. The title reads " printed by S. Terry for Daniel Birchall," 
and so we have Liverpool's first bookseller and publisher in conjunction with 
first printer. But it is only fair to state, that there is a strong possibility that 
one Joseph Eaton was a bookseller in the town, prior to Birchall, Eaton's name 
being found as such on the title of a London published pamphlet, dated 1710. 
By the year 1719 we had a book printed by Terry " for the booksellers in 
Liverpool," so that we may claim printing, bookselling, and publishing 
at this date had made a reasonable start. Adam and John Sadler are the 
next printers of importance to appear on the scene, followed by Peter Whitfield in 
1748 with a sm. 4to. work on Hebrew Vowel Points, thus early introducing a fount 
of Hebrew type into the town. Adam and John Sadler were father and son, the 
father, Adam, an old soldier from the wars of Marlborough, who settled down in 
Liverpool with his printing press. Perhaps their best books are The Muses Delight 
and Apollo's Cabinet, Collections of Songs with music, engraved almost throughout, 
his son John having learned the art of engraving. John Sadler earlier (1152), 
with a partner Guy Green, invented the art of printing on pottery, and opened up 
what in those days must have been an extensive business. 

It is to R. Williamson, however, that printing in the town in a large sense is 
<lue. On the 28th May, 1756, that is 42 years after the demise of The Courant, a 
gap in the newspaper literature of Liverpool very difficult to understand, appeared 
Williamson' s Liverpool Advertiser and Mercantile Register, a paper which under 
changed titles practically ran to the 1st March, 1856. In 1757 John Sadler had a 
venture The Liverpool Chronicle, with R. Fleetwood for publisher. It only lasted 
twelve months. Another Chronicle, of which nos. are very scarce, was issued by 
the printer T. Cowburne in 1768. Another printer and publisher about this time 
came into action and became the most serious rival to Williamson. This was 
John Gore, founder of the Liverpool Directory in 1766. In 1765, he commenced 
The Liverpool Advertiser, and employed the press of W. Nevett & Co. for the print- 
ing. This paper had the lengthy existence of 107 years, its last issue being Dec. 
187L There were many ephemeral issues of newspapers up to 1808, which year 
saw the first number of the Liverpool Courier, a paper still enjoying vitality, and 
1811 saw the issue of The Mercury, amalgamated with The Daily Post in 1904, 
and still flourishing. 



So far, this survey of printing, publishing, and bookselling in the town has r 
by the very material to be dealt with, been largely the history of local jour- 
nalism in the 18th century. Yet at the end of the century, printers whose work 
was fit for the best company were to be found here. The provinces contain 
records of few printers who have attained national or noteworthy importance 
such as Foulis of Glasgow, or Baskerville of Birmingham. But one who narrowly 
escaped such dignity must surely be named in James McCreery of Liverpool. The 
city should feel in a literary sense very much more proud than she does of McCree 
ry, (1768-1832), who was both printer and poet of no mean order. His poem 
" The Press," 4to., 1803, was published as a specimen of typography, and the 
type used is generally believed to have been secured from the sale of Baskerville's 
effects. It is a beautiful specimen of the printer's art and the woodcuts in it, the 
work of Henry Hole, a Liverpool lad, who went to Newcastle to learn the use of 
the graver from the Bewicks. McCreery was afterwards tempted to London, 
where he produced many beautiful works, being favourite printer for T. Frognall 
Dibdin. London had taken full toll from Liverpool during these times. Joseph 
Johnson, the publisher and bookseller of St. Paul's Churchyard, was born in 
Liverpool in 1738. He went to London and served his time with George Keith of 
Gracechurch Street, and eventually became most prominent amongst the pub- 
lishers of London, publishing the work of the poet Cowper, Home Tooke, Mrs. 
Barbauld and others. He identified himself largely with the founding of the 
Liverpool Directory, by John Gore in 1766, a work which has had continuous pub- 
lication to this day. The original issue in 1766 is most scarce, only two copies 
known to be in existence, though several times reprinted. John Almon was also 
printer and bookseller in Liverpool until 1758, when he made a journey on the 
continent, and in returning settled in London, where his abilities as a pamphleteer 
were quickly recognised. He became the firm friend of John Wilkes, a friendship 
which in some ways cost him not a little trouble at the hands of the authorities ; 
though perhaps his sale of the famous letters of Junius, brought him into greater 
trouble. However backward in its inception in the city of the business of book- 
selling and publishing, the names of Troughton, Adam Holden, Gilbert Walmsley, 
Edward Howell, senr., David Marples, and others are all honoured names here, 
and we have names yet in Henry Young & Sons, the Howells, W. M. Murphy, 
Jaggard, and others, that worthily uphold the best traditions of the bookselling 
trade 

Before printers and publishers in a provincial city can make very much mark 
in their world they must have about them those who with the pen can call atten- 
tion to the fact that they have something to say of more than ordinary importance, 
and it has almost become a fashion to belittle any claims Liverpool may set forth 
to have or likely to have, in taking a prominent part in the literature of the 
country. Yet we find produced here, among poets, Mrs. Hemans, William Roscoe, 
Arthur Hugh Clough, William Watson and Richard Le Gallienne. Among 
romancists we may claim only in recent years, Col. Meadows Taylor, Mrs. D. M. 
Craik, followed later by Hall Caine, Egerton Castle, Mrs. W. K. Clifford, " John 
Garrett Leigh," William Tirebuck and the work of Ian Maclaren (the late Rev. 
John Watson ),was produced mid the atmosphere of this great city. William 
Ewart Gladstone was surely a worthy figure in the nation's literature, as well as in 
its statesmanship. The late Bishop Lightfoot was also a man whose literary 
work will outlast much that is produced now. Both worthy sons of our busy sea- 
port. And these names might easily be added to, all showing that if Liverpool 
men axe busy with their shipping and their merchandise there is space still for 
the literary spirit. 

Regarding the libraries of the city, it would require more space than is pos- 
sible here to deal with them adequately. The first we have record of is that 
formed in St. Peter's Church, in 1715. " John Fell of Liverpool, mariner, be- 
queathed £30 towards the formation of a library of edifying books for the general 
use of the parishioners." They constituted a chained library originally, but were 
brightened up and placed under glass early in last century. 

The Liverpool Library proper, senior by date of origin, and in its titular 
nomenclature is more generally spoken of as the Lyceum, being housed in con- 
junction with the Lyceum News- Room at the foot of Bold street, dates from 1756, 
though it was not formally constituted until 1758. It is a proprietary circulating 
library, and its early established date has led to the claim that it is the oldest of 
its class in the country. 



li. 



The Athenaeum, in Church Street, was established in 1797, opened in 1799, 
and in its frequenters is quite the aristocratic library of the city, and was the first 
library having a systematic supply of the principal newspapers of the day. The 
institution was the outcome of a movement of William Roscoe and his friends. 
The Library contains a valuable collection of local literature, consisting of portraits 
of celebrities of Liverpool, early newspapers and periodicals, directories, etc., 
but its most valuable possessions are certain Roscoe MSS. and portion of Dr. 
Currie's former possessions of Robert Burns' MSS. 

So far as these two libraries were concerned in the early years of the nineteenth 
century they served a very useful purpose in emphasising the great disadvantages 
the working classes were under in respect of reading facilities and study compared 
with their wealthier townsmen. In 1821 Mr. Egerton Smith commenced an 
agitation for the provision of a lending library for his poorer brethren, In 1823 
he appeared at a meeting of the Liverpool (Lyceum) Library Committee, and his 
appeal was so eloquent that they made a grant of duplicates they possessed, and 
these, along with other donations, allowed of the opening of a library for mechanics 
and apprentices, in Lord Street, in July 1823. Thus Liverpool's first free library, 
though there seems to be no evidence of any support being granted to the project 
by the Town Council then 

The Public Library of the city was opened in a temporary building in Duke 
Street, in October 1852 The pressing necessity of providing increased accommo- 
dation was the incentive which led Sir William Brown to offer to defray the whole 
cost of erecting a new and palatial building on the street then called Shaw's 
Brow, afterwards in honour of the benefactor altered to William Brown street. 
This was the beginning of that beautiful range of buildings, libraries, museum, 
art gallery and technical schools that has occupied the whole length of the street. 
Accommodation was still further needed as the city grew and increased use took 
place of the Library, and so the Picton Reading Room was built and opened in 
1879. This is a circular room of 100 feet in diameter, and is often called the 
British Museum of the North of England, being purely a Reference Library on 
much the same lines as the British Museum. The building was not the gift of Sir 
J ames Picton, but a graceful compliment paid to him in naming the room after him, 
in consideration of his great services as chairman of the Committee for so many 
years. The Reference Library is one of the finest in the provinces, specially rich in 
architectural books, decorative art, natural history, early printed bibles, scientific 
works and long sets of serials. As only to be expected, it also possesses the best 
collection of Liverpool literature, a wonderful catalogue of which, in 374 4to. pages, 
double columns, has only recently been issued. There are 153,000 vols, in thi3 
Reference Library, and with 1 52,000 deposited in branch libraries freely distributed 
in the crowded districts of the city, give a total of over 300,000 vols, for Liverpool's 
Chief Librarian to have guardianship over. 

The Hugh Frederick Hornby Library is a separate building annexed to the 
Picton Reading Room, and it is only through the latter that the building may 
be entered. As you enter, a bold plate tells of " this library and its contents of 
books, prints and autographs were the munificent gift of Hugh Frederick Hornby, 
a merchant of Liverpool." This last phrase is a proud title, particularly when you 
examine what manner of collector can this merchant have been. The collection is 
contained in a single room 64 feet long by 37 feet broad, built of Bath stone, in a 
style severely classical, eight Ionic columns carrying a barrel- vaulted ceiling. The 
collection consists of 8,000 vols., largely, if not entirely, devoted to the illustration 
of the graphic arts and book-illustration generally from early times to the end of 
the 19th century. Beautiful editions, rarest of issues, in most tasteful bindings 
constitute it an ideal collection. Then there are the prints, the autographs, and 
so many other rarities, that one has to live in the collection before realising 
what a treasure Liverpool is possessed of in its Hornby library. 

Probably the next library of importance in the city is that of the University. 
It contains upwards of 40,000 volumes and is housed in a most appropriate buil- 
ding, with timbered roof, and snug alcoves and recesses for the students. It was 
the gift of Sir Henry Tate, whose bust is to be seen on entering the library. 
Considering the few years it has had an existence the University Library is fast 
making progress to distinction. Then there is the Church House Library, Church 
House, South John Street, almost on the site of Egerton Smith's Library for 
mechanics, mentioned above. This is a valuable collection of 8,000 vols., mostly 
theological literature, and open to members of the House. 



lii. 

There is also the Law Library in Cook Street for legal studies and reference, 
which may be said to be supplemented by that in the law courts of the great St. 
George's Hall. 

The Medical Society's Library, in the Medical Institution, Hope Street, is a 
special library of many years standing, which has recently been furbished up and 
brought to date. The libraries of various societies like that of the Historic Society 
of Lancashire and Cheshire, the Literary and Philosophical Society, and others, 
are among the smaller but useful libraries abounding in Liverpool, and of which 
particulars would be out of place in this brief account. 

COLLOQUIALISMS 

In the previous part we had matter respecting Swinburne. Since then an 
extremely-interesting unpublished letter by Tennyson has come to light. It 
appears that in the year 1869 Mr. D. Barron Brightwell, then living at 5 Gower 
Street, London, made a Concordance of the Works of the Laureate, and sent a 
copy to Tennyson. Instead of Mr. Brightwell receiving a complimentary ack- 
nowledgment the poet wrote in a towering rage, from Blackdown, Haslemere, on 
Oct. 12th, 1869, stating that it was published altogether without his sanction or 
knowledge, and that Mr. Brightwell had done, presumably at the dictation of 
another, something thoroughly illegal. He complains that the Concordance had 
been made from certain little songs of his, privately-printed, and that in this act 
he sees rather the act of his ex-publisher (Moxon) than of the compiler. The final 
sentence is the most pungent of all, for he declares the facsimile portrait of himself 
to be a " fac-dissimile " and a caricature, equally disgraceful to publisher and 
engraver, and as being as little like him as he is " to — ancient Pistol." It seems 
that the original portrait from which the frontispiece was reproduced was made by 
a Mr. Jeffrey, whom Tennyson styles his " good honest friend," and he was doubt- 
less a photographer. A description of the Concordance will be found in Mr. Wise's 
Bibliography of Tennyson, vol. 2, page 60. The stamped envelope, addressed to 
Mr. Brightwell, accompanies the letter. A facsimile of page 3 of the letter will 
be found opposite this page. This characteristic epistle recently appeared in the 
catalogue of that well-known antiquarian bookseller, Mr. William Downing, of 
The Chaucer's Head, Birmingham, from whom I purchased it, and Mr. Downing 
gives these interesting particulars : — 

" I knew Brightwell. He was on The Daily and Weekly Post. I bought 

his books after he died. He was a good fellow. I remember when Brightwell 

came to Birmingham before I knew his name, we were chatting at my old shop 

in New Street and a copy of his Concordance to Tennyson lay on the table. I 

picked it up and said, Look here. What a fool a man must be to index the works 

of a living author Tennyson mill write hundreds of poems before he dies ; at least 

we all hope so. My good friend B. laughed, and said " Yes, you are right. I 

am the fool." 

The charm of Tennyson's letter is that there is no posing in it, no writing for effect 

or with an eye to publication at some future date, but is just a natural human 

document, written at a white heat in a moment of indignation. 

* * * 

Mr. Davis, of Davis & Moughton, Ltd., Birmingham, writes, with reference 
to the catalogue statement that Ben Jonson's Works, 1640 (vide B.A.R., Vol. 6, 
Part 2, page 216), does not want the partrait. He says, " There was no portrait 
published in 1616, It first appeared in 1640. I also think it wrong to call it 
Vol. 1, as it was all that was published until 1640, when two vols, appeared, of 
which Vol. 1 corresponded with the 1616 edition." Mr. Davis further writes. 
" See also page 157, last entry under Latin Bibles. 1585 is given as the date of 
the first Latin Bible published in England. The first was 1580, printed by 
Henry Middleton." We aTe all indebted to any subscriber who will send such 
items of information as these.

Confusion sometimes arises through loose statements as to the plate of 
" The Last Song " in Dickens's " Memoirs of Grimaldi " being in the " first state." 
It is often not stated what that " last state " is. It is well, therefore that it 
should be clearly understood that the " first state " is when it is the same as all 
the other plates in the volumes, viz. without a border, and bound in light pink 
cloth. Later on " Alfred Crowquill " (i. e. A. H. Forrester) added a grotesque 
border, and copies containing it were issued in dark brown and in black cloth.

Messrs. Charles L. Bowman & Co., Publishers and Booksellers, 225 Fifth 
Avenue, New York, would like to receive catalogues of scarce books. Business is 
almost sure to result to those who have anything at all worth offering for sale. 

* * * 

The following is the name of a buyer taken from my list of American book- 
collectors : — 

R. C. Auld, Esq., 1, Madison Avenue, New York. 
This is one out of 1 50 names on the list, and althoxigh only £2 is charged for the 
list it is really worth far more. I know of a number of large orders received by 
those few who were " cute " enough to purchase the list ; orders varying from 
£10 to £50. But the unenterprising dealer looks at the £2 and forgets the possible 
£50. * * « 

On page 273 of the first edition of vol 1 of B. A.R. there is the following entry : 
7364. Goya y Lucientes (F. de) Treinta y tres estampas que representans 
diferentes suertes y actitudes del arte de lidiar los Toros, 33 pits., fo., hf. 
mor., s. d. Ellis, £112 

The same entry also occurs on page 673 of the new edition. In the interests of 
accuracy this should be noted as a misprint, which escaped the notice of the 
editor of the first edition. The price was really £12, and the correction should 
be made with the pen. Since B.A.R. has been under my editorship the greatest 
care is taken to prevent any such misprints, but if any ever should occur they 
will be announced as soon as discovered in order that the continuance of mis- 
leading information may be avoided. 

* * * 

The " Books Wanted " section will, apparently, not " catch on." This is 
exactly what I expected. It was a suggestion made by a subscriber, and I believe 
in giving every new idea a trial. If it proves to be guilty of defeat one can but 
record the verdict. Anyhow, I am so well satisfied with the result of my own 
advertisement that it will remain en permanence. If such things as pills and 
ointment will sell by sheer force of bold advertisement I don't see why advertising 
for books you want to buy — if done persistently — should not meet with equal 
success. There is much virtue in Abraham Lincftln's advice to " keep pegging 
away." * * * 

The tremendous difference which can be made in a sentence by the omission 
or the addition of merely two words was never brought home to me more clearly 
than recently. The Athenaeum printed a review of Notes from Sotheby's which 
was considered by many subscribers to be a " very good notice." But the review- 
er appeared to suppose that the volume purported to be a collection of the whole 
of the notes from the catalogues of Sotheby's during the past quarter of a century, 
and he pointed out that it was only a selection, and that there were many omis- 
sions of importance, I thereupon sent a reply which included the folkrwing 
sentence : " It " (the review) " appears likely to convey an idea to outsiders that 
I had merely made a selection of notes from the whole of Messrs. Sotheby's cata- 
logues, and, in justice to myself, I should wish it to be known that this is not so." 
A note was appended to my answer to the effect that I contradicted myself, con- 
tinuing " He says, first, that his notes are not a ' selection ' from Messrs. Sotheby's 
catalogues, and then admits that he had to depend on every spare catalogue 
which he could get," &c. What I did say in the reply printed immediately above 
this note was that the " Notes " were not a selection from the whole of Messrs. 
Sotheby's catalogues, and those two words — " the whole " — show that I did not, 
as The Athenaeum states, contradict myself. I did not care to ask The Athenaeum 
to print any further rejoinder, but I note the circumstance here as a proof of the 
need for literal accuracy in all matters affecting criticism. I am still contented in 
the belief that I was right, and that the reviewer in question was wrong, and 
there let the matter be. Anyhow, Notes from Sotheby's has been a great success. 
The verdict of those who have bought and paid for a work affords a far better cri- 
terion of merit than that of any critic. If buyers are more than satisfied with 

their guinea's worth that is all the justification required.

There are some subscribers who would like to have a complete set of B.A.R. 
but do not care to spend £6 6s. Od. at once. To meet such cases sets, or parts 
of sets can be acquired on the instalment system. The volumes w T ill be delivered 
at once, carriage free, and payment will be accepted at the rate of 1 /9 per month 



liv. 

for each volume, commencing one month after delivery. The payment of 1/9 
will not be felt, but during each month many times that amount should be 
made through possessing the volume. A complete set will thus cost only 10/6 
per month, spread over one year. All that is stipulated for is regularity of pay- 
ment, in order not to give trouble. The volumes are of course all bound in red 
cloth, ready for immediate use. We know of no such valuable investment that a 
bookseller could made. No extra charge is made for accommodation.

There are so few persons who do anything that produces monetary results 
from disinterested motives that it is an especial pleasure to give credit to their 
actions when possible. Thus, Mr. G. S. Snowden (of "Sotheby's") has once 
again, at great personal trouble, organised a dramatic entertainment on behalf of 
the Booksellers' Provident Institution. The play was " What the Butler Saw," 
performed at the Court Theatre on May 5th by the members of Mr. Snowden's 
" West Kent Amateur Dramatic Company," and one can only say that much of 
the acting in this diverting piece would not have done discredit to a London pro- 
fessional company. We all spent a very pleasant evening, and the funds of the 
B.P.I, benefited to the extent of £ 12 10s., for which fact the thanks of all book- 
sellers are due to Mr. Snowden and his clever company of actors and musicians. 
The London members of the antiquarian book-trade attended in considerable 
force, but it is to be regretted that the members of the " new " book- trade present 
were not nearly so large as should have been. 

* * * 

Special Notice : — Part 4, with Index, will be published early in September, 
completing vol. 6, and bound copies of the entire volume will be ready about ten 
days later. Subscribers who wish to have the volume instead of Part 4 should 
notify us immediately. The cost, delivered free, will be 7/8 provided that Parts 
1,2, and 3 are returned per Parcel Post (not by Sutton's) with the remittance, after 
receipt of the volume. Subscribers will find this f arjnore convenient and expedi- 
tious than binding the vol. themselves, as they receive the complete volume before 
returning any of the used parts. Those subscribers who have already adopted 
this plan need not write. They will receive the volume in due course. 

* * * 

The mention of binding reminds me that if ever you want any wholesale cloth 
binding done I can most strongly recommend Mr. Francis Knight, 168 St. John 
Street, E.C. He bound " Notes from Sotheby's " and Vol. 5 of B.A.R. He is 
obliging to a degree, conscientious, and reasonable. When I suggested knocking 
off a halfpenny per copy in the charges for one volume his reply was " Certainly. 
It is a pleasure to work for you, and has been from the first." These are the little 
things that oil the wheels of business and make life worth living. Mr. Knight 
was recommended to me by Mr. Francis E. Murray, at a time when I had very good 
reasons for desiring to make a change, and the recommendation has been more 
than justified. * * * 

The decision of " ' The Times ' Book Club " to establish branch libraries with 
the leading drapers in country towns is much to be regretted. It will doubtless 
be the opinion of most " new " booksellers that such competition is — well, let us 
say " unfortunate." The latter are being ground between the millstones of dis- 
counts and capitalism. All the more reason for cultivating knowledge of anti- 
quarian bookselling, which no monopolist can ever play havoc with, because years 
of experience are required, and, most important factor of all, personal attention. 
I know of more than one case during the past twelvemonth in which " new " 
booksellers have woke up to the fact that they can't live on afprofit of twopence 
in the shilling, and they have wisely equipped themselves with every available 
book of reference and have set to work to learn something about a calling in 
which, given intelligence and enterprise, one can make a living. 

* * * 

It's a risky thing for a subordinate to imagine himself indispensable. I knew 
a case, a year or two ago, in which a man did consider himself such, and he did 
not fail to let his firm know that he thought so. At length his employers got 
tired of his airs and the head of the firm said, "Well, Jones, what would happen 
if you were dead ? " " Oh, well," said Jones, " you'd have to do without me 
then." " Very well," replied the head, "We'll suppose you're dead. Takeamonth's 
notice ! " And a month later Jones was looking for a new post, and was a sadder 
and a wiser man.

NOTES FROM SOTHEBY'S 



Subscribers who purchased Notes front Sotheby's need not read this page. It 
is addressed to those who didn't purchase it, and it gives the opinions of those 
who did. 

Mr. William Downing, of Birmingham, says " I am delighted with Notes from 
Sotheby's. I spent all last evening in reading the volume, and shall not rest until 
I have gone quite through it." Another says, " It is an admirable work, and does 
you great credit ; of that there is no possible manner of doubt whatever." Anoth- 
er says, " We have received Notes from Sotheby's and we will keep it. I have 
looked through it with nuich pleasure. It contains a large amount of very 
interesting information which must have taken a great deal of getting together." 
Others say, " My hearty congratulations on your ' Notes.' " " I am very pleased 
with Notes from Sotheby's. It is a book which one can pick up at any moment and 
procure an immense amount of bibliographical information." " Enclosed please 
find cheque for Notes from Sotheby's. A very useful compilation." " It is a 
remarkable production, and as I know by experience that any work of yours, 
editing or original, is always accurate, will you kindly let me have another copy, 
and the bill." " Enclosed I have pleasure in sending cheque for the book, and I 
hope it will meet with as much success as your labours over it deserve." 

The Athenaeum, May 15, 1909, says, " Mr. Karslake's compilation is full of 
variety, covering almost every phase of book-collecting. Messrs. Sotheby's cata- 
logues are compiled with care and special knowledge, and no bibliography of rare 
books can be approximately complete without an examination of them. It is, 
however, the peculiar fate of catalogues to disappear, and in a few years they 
become exceedingly difficult to obtain. Rooms in modern houses are not adapted 
for large libraries, and sale catalogues rapidly outgrow their allotted space. We 
are glad, therefore, that Mr. Karslake has rescued so much bibliographical matter 
from oblivion ; his volume will form a most handy appendix to Book- Prices 
Current,' in the earlier volumes of which very few notes were reprinted. We are 
glad that Mr. Karslake has gone to the fountain-head for his inspiration, and not 
contented himself with getting it second-hand." 

The Clique, Mar. 20, 1909, says, " A very interesting compilation, and one 
which is sufficiently attractive to a bibliophile to be read from the first page to the 
last ... a work which will appeal to all lovers of books and bibliography, a work 
which in more senses than one will be found profitable by all our readers." 

The Bookseller, March 19th, 1909, says, " Mr. Karslake has done the editorial 
work with his usual skill and judgment." 

The Westminster Gazette, April 20, 1909, says, " A book of considerable value 
to book- collectors, booksellers, and bookmen generally. Mr. Karslake, who is, 
of course, an expert in this class of work, has evidently expended considerable care 
on his task, and the result is in every way satisfactory." 

The Daily News, April 16, 1909, says, " The volume, is, in many ways, a 
convenience." 

The Morning Post, March 13, 1909, says, " This volume ought to be of great 
service to the student of bibliography and to the connoiseur. It contains inter- 
esting information about rare editions of old books. For instance, we discover 
the title of the first book which mentions Queen Mary by name, and find many 
volumes not mentioned in Lowndes. Mr. Frank Karslake, the compiler, is well- 
known as the editor of Book-Auction Records and as a careful bibliographer." 

Notes from Sotheby's is a compilation of 2,032 Notes from Catalogues of Book- 
Sales which have taken place in the rooms of Messrs. Sotheby, Wilkinson, and 
Hodge, between the years 1885-1909, Edited by Frank Karslake. Square 8vo., 
handsomely printed on thick paper, with large margins, and having a frontispiece 
of the Amherst Sale, drawn on the spot, with key-plate of names. £1 5s. net. 
(£1 Is. to Booksellers). 

It is a volume which no bookseller who cares for his business should be without*.

THK JOJTV RYTANDS LIBRARY, MAXCHKSTFR 



Manchester Libraries and Booksellers 

By C. W. SUTTON, M.A. 



BEFORE the foundation of the Chetham Library there had been several gifts 
and bequests of books to the Collegiate Church, the only organized cor- 
porate body in the town. Thus, Cardinal Langley in 1436 left a copy of 
the Flores Bemardi to the College of Manchester. In 1533, Henry Turton, a 
Chaplain of the Church, bequeathed a number of printed books. Henry Bury, 
who died in 1634 — note the interval of a hundred years between each recorded 
bequest — left £10 to buy books, " to be paid when they shall have a convenient 
place of their own, furnished with books for the common use of the parish to the 
worth of a hundred pounds, a tiling that may in my opinion soon be done in that 
great, rich and religious town." Though Lord Strange made a grant of the Derby 
Chapel within the Church, for the use of a library, and certain new books were ac- 
quired, it does not appear that the conditions of the legacy were fulfilled. Pro- 
bably the outbreak of the Civil Wars a few years later had its influence in divert- 
ing the parishioners' thoughts elsewhere However, between 1653 and 1655 the 
Rev. John Prestwich gave books to the town, and the Jesus Chapel was thought a 
fit place for them or any other books that might be given. The chapel was then 
roofless and greatly in need of repair, and a rate was levied on the inhabitants for 
its restoration. About the same time Humphrey Chetham's trustees carried out 
that benevolent founder's directions in placing a small library of chained books in 
the same Chapel. Interesting details are printed in Mr. R. C. Christie's "Old 
Church and School Libraries of Lancashire " with regard to the selection of the 
volumes for this and the other " Church Libraries " founded by Chetham and to 
their conveyance to and reception at Manchester. The books were almost entirely 
theological, and in course of time became neglected and many of them dilapidated, 
aud finally, to the discredit of the Warden and Fellows of the Collegiate Church, 
they were turned out and sold in 1829 and 1830. 

Since the Church became the Cathedral of the Diocese of Manchester a library 
has been formed, mainly if not entirely by gifts, for the use of the capitular body. 

Humphre}* Chetham, dying in 1653, instructed his feoffees to come to terms if 
possible for the purchase of the buildings called the College, formerly the Manor 
house of Manchester, and to convert it to the purposes of his intended Hospital (i. e. 
residence and school for poor boys), and public library After some delay the 
property was acqxiired and fitted up, and on August 5, 1656, the building was dedi- 
cated, Richard Hollinworth, chief assistant to Warden Heyrick at the Collegiate 
Church, and the earliest historian of the town, delivering a speech, an outline of 
which has been preserved. He " shewed that the house had formerly been the 
hall or manor house of the Grelles or Grelleys, Lords of Manchester, and was then 
called Baron's Court, or Baron's Yard. And afterwards it was built fin 1422] 
collegewise for the cohabitation of the Warden and Fellows of the Collegiate Church 
at Manchester, and called the College, and about one hundred years ago [1547] 
was alienated to the Earl of Derby .... He shewed also that from henceforth the 
said house could fitly and justly be named by no other name than by the name of 
Mr. Chetham's Hospital." 

The choice of books was left to Richard Johnson, who had been ejected from 
his Fellowship in the Collegiate Church by the Parliament and afterwards became 
Master of the Temple ; John Tilsley, the puritan Vicar of Deane, near Bolton ; 
and Richard Hollinworth. The books were bought in London and sent down in 
casks, and their arrangement was left to Henry Newcome and John Wickens, 
and others. The former was a greatly respected minister of the Collegiate Church, 
who declined to conform at the Restoration, and the latter was Master of the 
Grammar School. The shelving and bookcases which form such a striking feature 
of the Library were apparently modelled after the alcoves or " classes " at 
Merton College, Oxford. From the first the library has been open freely to all 
and has for many generations proved a great value to the literati of the district, 



lxvi. 

though it is by no means so extensively used as in former days when it was without 
the rivals that now exist in the city. Still, its sixty or seventy thousand volumes 
include many treasures not to be found elsewhere, besides a large number of 
manuscripts of great importance. 

The first librarian was Richard Johnson, beforenamed, but the actual work 
was performed by his deputies until his death in 1575. The list of subsequent 
librarians includes the Rev. Nathaniel Banne, Rev. Francis Hooper, Robert Thyer, 
who published Samuel Butler's " Remains," Rev. John Radcliffe, compiler of the 
first printed Catalogue of the Library, Rev. S. H. Hindley, an Oriental scholar, 
Rev. John Taylor Allen, and Thomas Jones, B.A., who was librarian from 1845 to 
1875, and who did more than any of his predecessors for the enrichment of the 
Library. The Library was afterwards under the control for a number of years of 
the late Mr. James Crossley, President of the Chetham Society, and of Sir H. H. 
Howorth, as honorary librarians. 

The latter part of the 18th century, and the early years of the 19th, saw 
the foundation of several libraries of interest, but it will be convenient to deal first 
with the greater libraries at present in operation. These are, in point of time,the 
Public Free Libraries, the University Library and the John Rylands Library. 

The Manchester Public Free Libraries originated shortly after the passing of 
the Libraries Act of 1850, and to Sir John Potter, Mayor of the town, must be 
attributed their establishment. He was instrumental in starting a large subscrip- 
tion for this object. The first librarian was Mr. Edward Edwards, the chief 
author of public library legislation, and the library itself and the details of its 
management have proved models on which most subsequent free libraries have 
been formed The library was equipped and ready for work before the Act was 
adopted by the ratepayers, a few days before it was opened on September 1 , 1852. 
On that day there was such a gathering of distinguished men as has rarely been 
seen on such an occasion, among them being Thackeray, Dickens, Lytton, and 
others hardly less famous. The Library began with two divisions, the Reference 
Department with 16,013 volumes, and the Lending Department with 5,305 
volumes. In a few years branch libraries were opened, and these were gradually 
increased in number until there are now twenty-one branches scattered over the 
city. These branches contain in the aggregate about 230,000 volumes, while the 
Reference Library has 180,000 volumes. 

The Reference Library is one of the most efficient in the kingdom, and con- 
tains a number of interesting special collections, the most important being one of 
books relating to bibliography, printing, binding and other subjects connected with 
the production and preservation of books. This collection was formed and pre- 
sented by the late Mr. Thomas Greenwood, who at his death in 1908 left a sum of 
money for its augmentation. 

The jubilee of the Manchester Public Libraries was celebrated with con- 
spicuous success in April, 1903, by meetings held at the University and in the 
Free Trade Hall, when speeches were delivered in honour of the occasion by Lord 
Avebury, Bishop Moorhouse, and other eminent men. The following is a list of 
the successive librarians : Edward Edwards, 1851-57 ; R. W. Smiles, 1857-64 ; Dr. 
A. Crestadoro, 1864-79 ; C. W. Sutton, 1879- 

The University Library, which now contains considerably more than 100,000 
volumes, was begun in 1851 by a donation of 1,200 from Mr. James Hey wood, 
F.R.S. The beautiful building in which it is housed was the gift of the late Mr. 
Richard Copley Christie, who also bequeathed his own choice and valuable collec- 
tion of books, rich in editions of Horace, and in original editions of the works of 
the "Humanists" of the 16th century. The University is fortunate in being 
the custodian of several other remarkable memorial libraries and of collections 
formed by scholars in various subjects. Among these are the library of Dr. J. 
Prince Lee, first Bishop of Manchester (7,000 vols., history, art, etc.) ; that of 
Professor E. A. Freeman (6,000 vols., historical) ; the Hager Memorial Library 
(Greek law and Teutonic philology) ; the Robinson and Theodores Collections of 
Oriental literature ; Canon Hicks' collection of books on Greek inscriptions ; the 
Manchester Goethe Society's library relating to Goethe ; the Angus Smith Memor- 
ial Library (chemistry, physics, etc.) ; the Milnes Marshall Memorial Library 
(Zoology) ; and the Boyd Dawkins Collection of geological books. Among the

book rarities is a copy of the first folio Shakespeare, presented by Sir E. Donner. 
The librarian is Mr. Charles Leigh. 

The John Rylands Library is but young in years but it is great in importance 
and well worth a pilgrimage to see. It is impossible in a brief sketch to attempt to 
describe the beauties of the building or the wonders of its contents. It was opened 
on October 6th. 1899, and is a memorial to the late Mr. JoluvRylands, a Manchester 
merchant, by whose widow it was created with loving care and lavish though 
judicious expenditure of money. Her original idea seems to have been to found 
a theological library, and she began about 1889 to make large purchases of books 
in that department of literature. Soon afterwards she broadened her scheme and 
acquired some thousands of costly and important books in other departments of 
learning. The collection had then already made considerable progress when, in 
1892, she secured for Manchester and for England the famous Althorp Library, 
which now forms one of the central features of the John Rylands Library. The 
other outstanding feature of the Library is the magnificent collection of Manu- 
scripts which Mrs. Rylands purchased in 1902 from the Earl of Crawford. These 
collections have elevated the John Rylands Library to a prominent position among 
the greatest libraries of the world, although in numbers it does not yet exceed, 
perhaps, 130,000 volumes. The number of specimens of books printed before the 
year 1500 is upwards of two thousand, most of them in the finest possible condition. 
There are more than fifty Caxtons, the first four folio Shakespeares, and original 
editions of many famous books, while the collection of bibles is one of the finest 
ever brought together. Such rarities, to describe which would take up many 
pages, form, however, but a comparatively small portion of the entire library, 
which embraces an abundant supply of " working tools " and other books needed 
by students of theology, philosophy, history, topography, archaeology, philology, 
and literature. For the augmentation of the Library and for its general mainten- 
ance Mrs. Rylands made very liberal provision during her lifetime, and at her 
death in 1908 she considerably increased her endowment. The library is con- 
trolled by a Council of Governors, and the librarian is Mr. Henry Guppy, M.A., by 
whom a number of scholarly special handbooks and bulletins has been compiled. 
Three large volumes of Catalogues of certain departments of the Collection of 
Oriental Manuscripts have recently been published, which will still further extend 
the reputation of this great library. 

There are other libraries which deserve extended notice, but they must here be 
summarily dealt with. The Salford Public Libraries were established in 1850 
under the Museums Act of 1844, and owe their origin to Mr. E. R. Langworthy, 
Mayor, and Mr. Joseph Brotherton, M.P. The System consists of a reference and 
a lending library at Peel Park, and five branch libraries, with a total of about 
90,000 volumes. Mr. B. H. Mullen, M.A. is the chief librarian. The literary 
and Philosophical Society, founded in 1781, has a large library rich in transactions 
of Scientific societies. The Portico Library, 40,000 volumes, was founded in 1804, 
as a proprietary library, and has a good collection of county histories, and a large 
number of 18th century pamphlets. Librarian, Mr. Ernest Marriott. The 
Manchester Medical Society, founded in 1834, has the largest medical library in 
the provinces, librarian, Mr. E. C. A. Clayton. The Law Library is another 
valuable professional collection. The Athenaeum, founded 1838, has a good 
general library, and there are about twenty other libraries connected with scientific 
societies, theological colleges, and other institutions. 

Two large subscription libraries flourished for many years but are now no 
more. The first was the Manchester Subscription Library, instituted about 1757, 
which had a collection of about 30,000 volumes. Its last home was in Newall's 
Buildings, Market Street, demolished in 1867 to make way for the new Royal 
Exchange. As the committee could not find suitable accommodation elsewhere 
the collection was dispersed by public auction in March that year. The second 
library was founded in 1792, and was long known as the Exchange Subscription 
Library from the circumstance that for a series of years it occupied rooms in the 
Old Exchange building. After leaving these premises it rested in several places — 
King'Street, Blackfriars Street, and King Street West — and was finally dissolved 
in'the early years of this century — its life being about the same as its elder brother, 
110 years. The Manchester Foreign Library was in existence from 1830~to 1903, 
when it was absorbed in the Public Library.

It now remains to give some account of traders in hooks. We know that 
there were owners of private libraries in Manchester and neighbourhood in early 
times, but the first bookseller or stationer of whom we have any record was John 
Browne, who died in 1612. The next was William Shelmerdine, who died in 
February 1653-4, and is the only Manchester bookseller mentioned in Arber's 
" Index to the Term Catalogues." He was followed by Thomas Smith, who came 
from Barnstaple and stocked his shop in Manchester " with all sorts of Latin and 
English books." His name appears on the title pages of about a dozen books 
printed between 1643 and 1653. The name of Ralph Shelmerdine, " bookseller in 
Manchester," probably the son of William, is found as the publisher of books 
printed from 1656 to 1673 or later. The following three Manchester booksellers 
do not appear to have published anything. They were Nathaniel Heathcote, 
Abraham Holland and Robert Hilton. The name of Mordecai Moxon, who was in 
business during the years 1679 to 1692, is given on the title page of some copies 
of the first edition of Chetham's " Angler's Vade-Mecum," 1681, a very rare and 
interesting local book. Ephraim Johnson carried on a large business towards the 
end of the 17th century. John Dunton in his " Life and Errors," 1705, says that 
he thought it " necessary to be a knave, and as a consequence of it to walk off." 
Eight or nine books were printed for him between 1694 and 1699, including two 
by Zachary Taylor on the " Surey Demoniack," and several controversial writings 
by Thomas Gipps, rector of Bury. Zachary Whitworth, probably a Leeds man, 
published Chorlton's funeral sermon on Henry Newcome, and two replies to 
Thomas Gipps by James Owen. The next publisher was a woman, Ann Unsworth. 
She published two small volumes by Henry Pendlebury. Newcome considered 
her a meddlesome woman. Another Shelmerdine, John, son of Ralph, published 
two books in 1698 and 1699. 

There were several booksellers in active business in the early years of the 
eighteenth century. One of them was William Clayton, a member of the old Man- 
chester family, who learnt his business as an apprentice to Ephraim Johnson. He 
published two sermons in 1711-12 by Henry Newcome, rector of Middleton, and 
in 1719 brought out a small book which is memorable as the earliest product of a 
Manchester press. This was entitled " Mathematical Lectures ; being the first and 
second that were read to a Mathematical Society at Manchester, by the late in- 
genious Mathematician John Jackson." It was printed by Roger Adams, who also, 
in the same year, printed the first Manchester newspaper, entitled " The Man- 
chester Weekly Journal." He afterwards removed to Chester, and in 1730 com- 
menced the " Weekly Courant," which has been continued to the present day. 
Another of Clayton's publications was " An Introduction to the Skill of Music," 
by Betts, organist of Manchester Collegiate Church, 1724. This bookseller died in 
1725 aged 46, leaving two sons, William, who followed him in business and publish- 
ed Tilliemont's " Ecclesiastical Memoirs," a folio, edited by Deacon ; and John, 
who attained eminence as an Oxford Methodist in association with John Wesley, 
and as a leading " Jacobite Clergyman " at Manchester. 

John Whitworth, who died in 1727, aged 64, published sermons by Aldred, 
Mottershead, and Jones, Presbyterian Preachers, between 1716 and 1720, and 
was succeeded by his son Robert, who became the most prolific printer and pub- 
lisher the town had seen. He was the Whig bookseller, and his shop " The Three 
Bibles," opposite the Exchange, was resorted to by the Presbyterians and adher- 
ents of the Low Church Party, though he was not shunned by others, as is shown 
by John Byrom, the Jacobite poet, being a customer of his in 1737. He published 
a newspaper, the " Manchester Magazine," which was the journal of the Whigs, 
and occasioned more than one good humoured epigram from Byrom's pen. Whit- 
worth, besides printing a number of sermons and tracts, issued Smethurst's 
" Tables of Time," 1732, two astronomical treatises by Robert Wright, 1732-4, 
" Poems on several occasions," 1733, Gore's " Vulgar Arithmetic," 1733, Saxton's 
" Merchant's Companion," 1737, " A Complete History of the Bible," 1738, " The 
Imitation of Christ," 1740, and an interesting volume of " Essays against Popery, 
Slavery, and Arbitrary Power, published during the late unnatural Rebellion, in 
the years 1745 and 1746." The first edition of Tim Bobbin's " Lancashire 
Dialect," circa. 1746, is said to have been published by him. He did not prosper 
greatly in business, for his name got into the Gazette in 1759. He died in 1772 
aged 65. 



lxix. 

John Hodges was a bookseller whose name is attached to books published 
from 1728 to 1746. John Berry was connected with the " Manchester Journal," 
a local newspaper for a few years beginning in 1736, and in 1741, in conjunction 
with Russell Casson, he published a very valuable map of Manchester. Joseph 
Harrop is one of the best known of Manchester booksellers and printers of the 
latter half of the 18th century. He was born in 1727, and in 1752 produced the 
first number of his newspaper " Harrop's Mercury," which ran for 77 years. He 
printed many books, large and small. His long life of usefulness and prosperity 
was ended in 1804. 

Contemporary with Harrop were at least a dozen booksellers, some of whom, 
however, flourished only a short time. Abraham Clarke, " bookseller, stationer 
and bookbinder, at the Bible and Crown," founded a business that was continued 
by his nephews Isaac, William, and Joseph, until well on in the 19th century. 

Thomas Anderton, of the Shakespeare's Head, near the Market Cross, was in 
business in 1756, and in 1762 began a newspaper called " The Manchester Chroni- 
cle, or Anderton' s Universal Advertiser, " and in 1763 a periodical which he 
styled " The Lancashire Magazine or Manchester Museum." 

John Haslingden was already a bookseller when he married in 1760. He 
published an edition of Tim Bobbin's Works in 1775 and others in 1793 and 1803. 
The last named edition may have been issued by James Haslingden, probably 
a son of John. In 1736, Alfred Schofield printed the " Manchester Journal," but 
it is uncertain when it stopped. His brother, James or John, in partnership with 
M. Turnbull, revived the paper and the name in 1754. This had a career perhaps 
as short as its predecessor. They appear to have had a bookshop. " A General 
History of Apparitions " came out with their imprint in 1754. 

Thomas Newton, and afterwards his brother William, had a good connection 
as booksellers. The former died in 1758, and the latter in 1794. William had the 
good fortune to marry, in 1762, Sarah Parren, " an agreeable young lady with a 
handsome fortune." He issued an edition of Defoe's New Family Instructor in 
1750. 

Still another " Manchester Journal " was brought out in 1771. The publisher 
was John Prescott, printer and bookseller, Old Millgate. It ceased long before 
his death, which took place in 181 1, at the age of 79. 

Charles Wheeler, born in 1756, began as a printer when he was only 
twenty-one, when he published an edition of Law's " Call to Professors." 
In 1781 he issued the first number of "Wheeler's Manchester Chronicle," 
a journal which had a great success and was continued under his own 
editorship until his death in 1827, and afterwards under that of his son John. A 
number of miscellaneous books comes from this press. It does not appear that 
the family were ever regular booksellers. One member of it wrote a useful " His- 
tory of Manchester." Another was a serjeant-at-law. Benjamin Wheeler began 
as a bookseller about 1823, but he may not have been one of this stock. B. 
Wheeler's firm is still in existence, chiefly as newsagents, and is by far the oldest 
house of the kind in Manchester. 

In 1785 a printer named Imison was at work at Manchester, where he pro- 
duced one or two books which are now rare. He was an ingenious mechanician, 
who not only cast his own type, but engraved the cuts that " embellished " his 
books. He died in 1791. 

Matthew Palkner, bookseller, stationer, and lettercase maker, son of another 
bookseller of his own name, published in 1792 the " Manchester Herald," a 
newspaper of such radical tendencies that it excited the ire of the Church and 
King mob, and led them to wreck his premises. He is said to have fled to America 
whence he returned some years later. He died at Burnley in 1824 at the age of 
85. 

Other printers whose publications are sometimes met with were John 
Radford, whose edition of Head's " English Rogue " is dated 1786, and Thomas 
Harper. 

Nearer the end of the century came William Cowdroy. In partnership with 
T. Boden, he started the " Manchester Gazette," in 1794, of which he was editor 
from that date until his death in 1814. He was a man of ability and wit, and 
his paper was one of the most readable in the country. He published many separ- 
ate books. His sons were also printers and newspaper men. 



ixx. 

George Swindells, who died at the age of 36 in 1796, was a well-known printer 
of chap-books and ballads. He also published in numbers an edition of the Holy 
Bible, folio. The business was continued by bis son John Swindells, who died 
in 1853, and A. Swindells, perhaps a brother of George. 

The last name reminds us of another publisher of small books of quite a differ- 
ent kind ; this was George Nicholson, a Yorkshireman, a man of originality and 
literary taste and ability. He published a series of well-printed poetical and prose 
selections and reprints, which were afterwards re-issued under the title of the 
" Literary Miscellany." After leaving Manchester, he settled at Ludlow, where 
he continued these books, and others of which he was the author or compiler. He 
died at Stourport in 1825. 

One must not forget Mrs. Raffald, who, although a cook, confectioner, and 
landlady of an inn, was also a publisher and brought out the first Manchester 
Directory that was ever published. The Directory is dated 1772 and was so 
successful that a new edition was published the following year. She was the 
author also of one of the best cookery books of her time — " The Experienced 
English Housekeeper." 

Another Directory compiler was James Pigot, who began business an an en- 
graver and copper-plate printer, but made his mark as the publisher of directories 
not only for Manchester but for other parts of the country. He was succeeded 
by his apprentice, Isaac Slater, who for a long series of years devoted himself 
to similar publications. He died at a very advanced age in 1883, after which the 
business was continued by his son, but has now been amalgamated with the firm 
of Kelly's Limited. 

The Manchester booksellers and publishers of the nineteenth century have 
been so numerous that it is only possible to name the more prominent, even if 
we do not go beyond those that were in business prior to 1860. 

One noteworthy publisher was Joseph Aston, author of an excellent " Man- 
chester Guide " dated 1804, the precursor of a long series of similar handbooks 
He also wrote and published :' The Metrical Records of Manchester," and many 
other books ; but bis chief venture was a newspaper " The Manchester Exchange 
Herald." 

During the first quarter of the century there were several second-hand book- 
sellers in a large way of business who issued important catalogues, some of which 
are still prized by collectors ; these booksellers were James Thomson, Ebenezer 
Thomson, Robinson and Ellis, and especially William Ford. The last named had 
an unrivalled bibliographical knowledge and had customers among the greatest 
collectors in that great day of collectors. 

Omitting many names of more or less interest we may proceed to that of John 
Gray Bell, a native of Newcastle-on-Tyne, who settled in Manchester in the fifties 
as a second-hand bookseller, He paid special attention to topographical books 
and prints and issued many interesting catalogues, some of which contained 
literary supplements by himself and customers. While at Manchester, where he 
died in 1866, he published a folio volume entitled " Genealogical Account of the 
Descendents of John of Gaunt." One of his contemporaries was Thomas Hayes, 
who for some years was one of the principal provincial booksellers. On bis re- 
tirement, he sold his large stock to Henry Sotheran & Co., of London, by whom the 
business was carried on under the management of Mr. W. N. Pitcher, who sub- 
sequently acquired the business in his own right. 

In 1848 Thomas Sutton began business as a second-hand bookseller in Shude- 
hill, and he obtained in the trade a considerable reputation for his wide knowledge 
of books. His third son, the late Richard H. Sutton, started on his own account 
in 1876, and before his early death in 1889 occupied a leading position among local 
booksellers. Thomas Sutton took into partnership in 1879 his youngest son, Albert 
Sutton, who, since his father's death in 1883, has carried on the business in his 
own name. 

The late James Edward Cornish came to Manchester in 1854 and soon after 
began his practice, which was speedily followed by many other booksellers, of 
allowing a discount of 2d. in the shilling off new books. He long held the first 
place among the new booksellers in Manchester. It was chiefly as a new 




JOHN DAY 

This early and very eminent English printer, who flourished towards the 
middle of the sixteenth century, was born in St, Peter's parish, Dunwich, 
in the county of Suffolk. He is thought to have learnt the art of printing 
from Gibson, one of whose devices he frequently used. He begin the 
printing business in conjunction with William Seres, a little above Holborn 
conduit, about the year 1544. In 1549 he removed to the neighbourhood 
of St. Anne's church, Aldersgate-street, where he built a printing office. 
He had shops however in other parts of the town for the sale of his books. 
It is conjectured that he forbore printing during the reign of Queen Mary ; 
but it is evident, from his subsequent publications, that he must in that 
interval have applied himself to the improvement of his art. He was the 
first in England who printed in the Saxon letter, and he contributed to 
bring the Greek, Italic, and other characters to great perfection. He was 
considered by Archbishop Parker, by whom he was frequently employed, 
as excelling his contemporaries in his art. When the Stationers' Company 
obtained their charter from Philip and Mary he was the first person 
admitted to their livery He was chosen warden in the years 1564, 1566, 
1571, and 1575, and served the office of master in 1580. In 1583 he trans- 
ferred to the company his right to certain books and copies, for the benefit 
and relief of their poor. He died, July 23, 1584, having carried on the 
business of a printer with great reputation and success for 40 years He 
was buried in the parish church of Bradley Parva, in Suffolk. A monument 
has been raised to his n emory, on which aie inlaid the effigies of himself, 
his wife, and family : there is also upon it an inscription in the old English 
letter, recording his services in the cause of the reformation, by his various 
publications, particularly by Fox's Acts and Monuments, and intimating 
that he had two wives, and numerous children by each. Day printed 
several editions of the Bible, besides the works of the Martyrs, of Archam, 
and other standard writers of that age. 



(The name of John Day occurs so frequently among the " Records " that 
it is thought probable that this reproduction of a portrait of him, engraved 
about 1800 and accompanied by the above brief biography, may be of 
interest. — Ed.)

bookseller and publisher that he was known, but about twenty-five years ago he 
had bequeathed to him the wonderful stock of old books formed by Thomas 
Kerslake of Bristol, and for a number of years he issued interesting catalogues of 
portions of this stock. Mr. Cornish died in December, 1903. 

The large publishing, bookselling, printing, and newsagency firms of Abel 
Heywood and John Heywood have been in existence for more than two generations. 
Abel and John were brothers, but were not in business together. The former in 
his earlier years was identified with the circulation of Chartist tracts and other 
publications of Cleave, Hetherington, and other advanced publishers, and engaged 
in the battle against " taxes on knowledge." He cultivated a wholesale trade 
among the booksellers in the towns and villages throughout Lancashire, and in 
this direction was eminently successful. In the course of his career he published a 
large number of books ; he engaged strenuously in public life, and was a member of 
the Manchester Corporation from its beginning in 1838. He was twice Mayor of 
Manchester and was the principal figure at the opening of the Town Hall in 1876. 
He died in 1893, when the management of the business was assumed by his son 
Abel Heywood, junior, who had been in partnership with his father for many 
years. It is carried on at the original premises in Oldham Street. 

John Hey wood's business was on similar lines to that of his brother, with 
the exception that he did not make a speciality of the " advanced " publications 
above alluded to. He began in Deansgate, not far from the present huge premises. 
For a short time he was a member of the Manchester Corporation, but evidently 
had not a strong tendency towards public life. He died at the age of 60 in 1864, 
when John Heywood the second succeeded him as sole owner of the concern. 
Under his hands the branches of the business became widely extended ; type- 
founding, making of school furniture, and other departments being added to the 
operations of the house. In his turn he died comparatively early, when John 
Heywood the third entered into possession, but unfortunately his life was not 
spared for more than a year or two. Since then the firm has been formed into a 
limited company for the benefit of the surviving relatives of its last two heads.

A new bibliographical publication, entitled The Irish Book Lover has just 
appeared. The " Foreword " to No. 1 best explains its purpose : — 

" The aim and scope of this little venture will be apparent from a 
perusal of this, our first number. We hope to form a connecting link 
between all lovers of Irish books and books relating to Ireland, where- 
ever published ; to indicate where these latter may be procured, and to 
assist readers in securing them. We shall deal with Irish Typography, 
Bibliography, and kindred subjects, whilst noticing briefly or at length, 
all new works, the product of the pens of Irish men and women. We have 
been promised the co-operation and assistance of many well-known in the 
world of letters, and we shall spare no pains to make ' The Irish Book Lover ' 
interesting and useful." 

Then follows an account of John Power, who issued The Irish Literary 
Enquirer, and articles on the Beaufoy Sale, the private press at Duncairn, Belfast, 
and on Honours for Irish Scholars ; also Reviews, Gossip ; Notes from the North, 
notices of booksellers' catalogues, and a list of " Wants." There will be twelve 
monthly Nos. for a subscription of 2/ -, and it is published by Messrs. Whyte and 
Salmond, The Manor House, Kensal Green, London, N.W. Dr. J. S. Crone, J. P., 
is the editor. Subscribers have the privilege of advertising three lines of " Wants, 
Sale, or Exchange" without charge. It is a venture warmly to be commended to 

all interested in Irish literature.

I can strongly recomneiid The Book of Trade Set rets, issued by Messrs. Haslam

Mr. Samuel Hales, of 2 Brownlow Hill, Liverpool, has taken premises at 
No. 4 Newman's Row, Lincoln's Inn Fields, W.C., on the identical spot where for 
so many years was the late Mr. James Sage's shop. It is an ideal location for a 
bookseller's, as it has no wheeled traffic, yet is only a few steps from the busy 
hum of Holborn, and is a place where buyers can loiter and turn over books. The 
Liverpool business will still be carried on, but Mr. Hales himself will reside in 
London. Everybody who knows Mr. Hales will wish him prosperity and content 
in his new departure.

Mr. Lionel W. Jones, of 56 High Street, Folkestone, has issued the first No. 
of a new contribution to bibliographical journalism. It is entitled The Book 
Exchange, and is a meritorious attempt to supply what is felt to be a " want." 
What is meant in future to be the principal feature is " Exchanges, Sales, and 
Wants," by members of " The Book Exchange," and this is supplemented by 
Editorial Articles, Reviews, Correspondence, and " Boreings " by the Book- Worm. 
The first No. is naturally of modest dimensions, but we all have to be babes before 
attaining to the " grown-up " stage, and we may at least give a hearty welcome to 
the little stranger in the interesting land of bibliography.

The abominable plan of wire-stitching should never be resorted to in the case 
of catalogues. I know of a recent instance in which a collector, in smoothing out 
a page to read, tore his finger with the wire, and vowed he woidd never open 
another catalogue from that firm. In another case an American binder punctured 
his hand while " stripping " a volume; and, the wire being rusty, he died from 
blood-poisoning. Wire-stitching is cheap, and also nasty, and if it loses custom- 
ers it is the dearest possible method.

Members of the Association are asked to remember that the whole of the 
profits upon the sale of " Attic Salt " belong to that body. It sells at 3/6 net., 
and costs 2/6 net., and every copy sold produces about 1 Id. for the Association. 
It is not a book for one season but for all time, and will sell year after year. 
Finally, it is supplied, carriage free, on sale, so there is no responsibility and no 
expense incurred through having it.

In vol. 4 (page xliv), a list was given of subjects for illustration which would 
be included in B.A.R. These, having been promised, will of course appear in 
time. The only reason they have not already done so is that they have been 
shunted through the interest shown in the series of articles on the libraries, 
printers, and booksellers of the more important centres of population.

May one plead for the more general use of the typewriter ? Of course there 
is more sentiment, and some indication of character, in handwriting, and personal- 
ly I prefer it. But when it comes to matters of business the purpose of a letter is 
before all, that it should be understood, and this is impossible, or well-nigh so, in 
some cases. Many booksellers are writing letters, or matter for the printers, all 
day long, and it is to their interest that their communications should be beyond 
doubt. I speak with feeling on the subject as wretched scrawls sometimes reach 
me, requiring much time to puzzle out. Good second-hand machines can now be 
purchased very cheaply,. and their use can be learnt in a week. The saving of 
time in catalogue-work is tremendous, to say nothing of making everything as 
clear as daylight for the much-maligned printer, who often suffers for the sins of 
others. It was, I believe, Horace Greeley who wrote such a wretched hand that 
one line of a poem which he intended to be something as follows 

" The maiden clasped her hands and prayed " 
was set up as 

" The moon climbed up the hill and brayed." 
But that was before the days of typewriters.

In July died Mr. Alexander Anderson, Chief Librarian of Edinburgh Univer- 
sity, not one of the least-remarkable of Scotland's self-made men. We learn from 
the pages of The Clique that in boyhood he was employed in a stone quarry, and 
was afterwards a surfaceman on a railway. He learnt French, German, Italian 
and Spanish in order to be able to read the works of the master-minds of those 
languages in the original ; published several volumes of poems ; and was eventual- 
ly appointed to the post in which he died. The Clique concludes by quoting the 
following verse from one of his poems, a verse which, to any who have had the su- 
preme fortune to be happily-wed, causes that curious feeling known as " cold 
water ruuning down your back," and I make no apology for reproducing it here : 

The years they come, the years they go, 

And as they go still stealing 
They take away the early glow 

And all the finer feeling ; 
But still I feel against my cheek 

That touch of hair so golden ; 
There are no pleasures that can speak 

Like pleasures that are olden. 

It reminds you of the time when you used to roam the fields 

" With an indolent arm round a darling waist" 

as Mortimer Collins sings in his "Summer Song." And although you see all the 
worst side of life in the Daily Paper it must be remembered that by far the larger 
proportion of marriages are happy, and in many cases very happy ones.

The Civil List recently provided for the unmarried female descendants of a 
famous novelist. Whereat some pained surprise was expressed. There need be 
no surprise at all, for it by no means argues that because a man emerges out of 
the ruck of the common people and becomes the most famous literary giant of the 
time that, therefore, his descendants will continue the tradition of supreme 
capability. It is, in fact, generally the reverse, and there are not often two 
William Pitts. Genius exhausts itself in a generation by its own volcanic energy. 
The type reverts to its original status, and the great men's sons are nobodies. 
That is perhaps the last word that can be said upon the subject. 

* * * 

In a letter by Lord Beaconsficld, sold at Sotheby's this year, there is an amus- 
ing sentence : — 

" They tell me that Lockhart has been abusing me in Fraser. I should 
like to see it. Why anyone should take the trouble of abusing me I cannot 
make out, as I am not aware that I have been particularly successful lately." 
Now isn't it a curious fact that directly a man succeeds all the nincompoops set to 
work to show what a fool he is ? But it was Beaconsfield who invented that 
immortal phrase, " The critics are those who have failed in literature and art." 
The incapable ones are every ready to tell you how much better they would have 
done your work if they had only had half a chance. Beaconsfield's mots are always 
arriding. They " touch the spot " so completely. 



The word " respectfully " should never be used by a bookseller, since it 
smacks of the want of the best of all qualities — se//-respect. Leave it to butchers 
and bakers and such folk to make use of because they know no better. 
The formal phrase " Your obedient servant " is infinitely better, because it is 
known to be only formal, and would be used by a Rothschild or any other million- 
aire in his business communications. But " respectfully " — never. It savours too 
much of the servants' hall for booksellers to write. No gentleman would ever 
say he was "respectfully" anybody's, and booksellers, of all traders, should try 
to be worthy of the term. I am reminded of the subject by the receipt of a 
circular by a firm which " respectfully " asks for orders for its goods, and naturally 
the last thing possible is to respect the firm for the way in which it puts its 
request. The firm in question was of course not in the world of bookselling.

Among the amusing things one sees in print is such a sentence as " when taken 
out of the water he was quite dead." The writer invariably fails to explain how 
any person can be other than either altogether dead or alive. He cannot be 
partly so, but merely one or the other. And this is what looseness of expression 
brings a man to ! 

* * * 

Sir Theodore Martin, part-author with Prof. Aytoun of the delightful Bon 
Gaultier Ballads, died the other day, aged 92. A couple of years ago I saw him one 
day at Sotheby's, and it was difficult to realize that so sprightly and vigorous a 
man could be in his nineteenth lustrum. When asked one day what was the 
secret of his youth he replied, " Work ! Work ! Work ! " He was never indiscreet 
enough to " retire " from work, a step which, to a man of affairs, means rust and 
death. If one must retire the only chance of prolongation of life is to take up a 
hobby, and to work as hard at that as formerly at business. 

* * * 

If any man ever has, by any chance whatever, influence over his fellows it is 
surely his duty to use it if and when he considers he may do so to their advantage. 
The following is an excerpt from a review in a London " Daily " of Mr. David 
Grayson's " Adventures in Contentment." 

' I have come back," he says, " with the feelings that human nature, at 
bottom, is sound and sweet." And the secret of it all is — Work.' 
The next extract from the book is 

' I will not sell it you. I will give it you outright. The best things are always 
given.' 
And the final paragraph of the review is as follows : — 

' There, I think, is the spirit of Mr. Grayson's content in a nutshell. " The 
best things are always given," and they are given only to those who know 
how to hold out humble hands for the gift. Seeking for happiness upon the 
highway, tearing along in its pursuit in a cloud of dust with the noise of many 
thunders up hill and down, day and night, man wears out body and soul, 
and drives his engine over the cliff at last, to vanish in irretrievable ruin. 
" The best things are always given," and given to those who learn to labour 
and to wait : 

Not here, nor there, but in a self forgot, 
Content is found of those who seek her not.' 
These three extracts furnish tons of philosophy for the over-wearied business-man 
if [he will but give heed. The happiest person I have ever known is a woman, 
and she is so because she has never sought contentment and, therefore, it always 
comes to her. 

* * * 

The short-sightedness of not adding to one's library of reference is illustrated 
by the fact that a London bookseller gave me a guinea for Notes from Sotheby's on 
the off-chance of some day finding a note in it that would be serviceable. He 
has just told me that within three minutes of receiving his copy he saw on the 
eighth page a note respecting a book which the day before he had priced £10 10s. 
The note was so interesting that he printed it, and raised the price of the book to 
£13 13s., and, what is more, the book was one of the first ordered from the next 
catalogue. So he at once paid for the cost of Notes from Sotheby's and made £2 2s. 
into the bargain, and has his copy of Notes to use indefinitely. Now, I am more 
than satisfied with the sale of Notes from Sotheby's so am not growling about it, 
but will it be believed that one or two dealers in old and scarce books 
returned their copies, and said they could do without them ? The bookseller to 
whom I have referred is a general dealer, and old and scarce books are not the rule 
but the exception in his stock, but, he has enterprise, and does not hesitate to 
cast a guinea on the waters when his judgment tells him there is a fair chance of it 
being some day returned with interest. In the present case he got what enterprise 
deserves, viz. immediate results. But when a bookseller tells me he can do with- 
out books of reference I feel inclined to reply it is about time he put the shutters 
up and did without a place of business.

BOOK- AUCTION R ECORDS 

This publication is now complete from the commencement in 
1902 to the present date. 

Volume 1, Part 1, contains 14,013 Records for the Season 1902-3, in one 
alphabet (thus avoiding the necessity for an Index). It contains also 
a view of John Keats' house at Hainpstead; a plate of the Mulberry-

of the memorial-bust of Keats, subscribed for in America, and placed

published Portrait of Thackeray, drawn by the late Sir Henry Thomp- 
son in 1857. It is believed to be the only portrait of Thackeray in 
profile, and was made without his knowledge. Sir Henry Thompson 
was Thackeray's surgeon, and was also a skilled portrait-painter. 

Volume 2 contains 15,751 Records for the Season 1904-5, and four plates, 
viz. : Puttick & Simpson's Auction Room, the Bodleian Copy of the 
First Folio Shakespeare (recently re-purchased for £3,000), a Sale at

Hodgsons' Auction Room ; a Portrait of Mr. Edwin Parsons ; a Coloured

Reference Library, Birmingham; the Central Library, Bristol; St. 
John's College Library, Cambridge ; and Trinity College Library, 
Dublin ; also a Coloured Portrait of Lord Beaconsfield, reproduced 
from a rare caricature of 1840 ; and four Vignettes of the house where 
" Oliver Twist " was written, the Statue of Dickens at Philadelphia, 
King's College Chapel, Cambridge, and the Bust of Goldsmith at 
Dublin. 

Volume 5 contains 15,019 Records for the Season 1907-8; four plates of the 
Signet Library, Edinburgh ; the Public Library, Exeter; the Mitchell 
Library, Glasgow ; and the Public Library, Hereford ; also two addi- 
tional plates, and four vignette illustrations of Edinburgh University ; 
the Devon and Exeter Institution ; the Old College, Glasgow ; and the 
Chained Library, Hereford Cathedral. 

Volume 6 contains 15,035 Records for the Season 1908-9; a portrait of A. C. 
Swinburne and facsimile of a poem by him ; facsimile of part of a 
letter by Tennyson; a portrait of John Day, printer, ob. 1584 ; plates

When desired, sets are supplied on the instalment system, payment being 
at the rate of 1/9 per month for each volume. A complete set of this 
invaluable publication can therefore be acquired by the expenditure of

Subscribers who purchased Notes from Sotheby's 

NEED NOT READ THIS PAGE. It IS ADDRESSED TO THOSE 
WHO didrit PURCHASE IT, AND IT GIVES THE OPINIONS OF 

those who did. 

Mr. William Downing, of Birmingham, says " I am delighted with Notes from 
Sotheby's. I spent all last evening in reading the volume, and shall not rest until 
I have gone quite through it." Another says, " It is an admirable work, and does 
you great credit ; of that there is no possible manner of doubt whatever." Anoth- 
er says, " We have received Notes from Sotheby's and we will keep it. I have 
looked through it with much pleasure. It contains a large amount of very 
interesting information which must have taken a great deal of getting together." 
Others say, " My hearty congratulations on your ' Notes.' " " I am very pleased 
with Notes from Sotheby's. It is a book which one can pick up at any moment and 
procure an immense amount of bibliographical information." " Enclosed please 
find cheque for Notes from Sotheby's. A very useful compilation." " It is a 
remarkable production, and as I know by experience that any work of yours, 
editing or original, is always accurate, will you kindly let me have another copy, 
and the bill." " Enclosed I have pleasure in sending cheque for the book, and I 
hope it will meet with as much success as your labours over it deserve." 

The Athenaeum, May 15, 1909, says, " Mr. Karslake's compilation is full of 
variety, covering almost every phase of book- collecting. Messrs. Sotheby's cata- 
logues are compiled with care and special knowledge, and no bibliography of rare 
books can be approximately complete without an examination of them. It is, 
however, the peculiar fate of catalogues to disappear, and in a few years they 
become exceedingly difficult to obtain. Rooms in modern houses are not adapted 
for large libraries, and sale catalogues rapidly outgrow their allotted space. We 
are glad, therefore, that Mr. Karslake has rescued so much bibliographical matter 
from oblivion ; his volume will form a most handy appendix to ' Book-Prices 
Current,' in the earlier volumes of which very few notes were reprinted. We are 
glad that Mr. Karslake has gone to the fountain-head for his inspiration, and not 
contented himself with getting it second-hand." 

The Clique, Mar. 20, 1909, says, " A very interesting compilation, and one 
which is sufficiently attractive to a bibliophile to be read from the first page to the 
test ... a work which will appeal to all lovers of books and bibliography, a work 
which in more senses than one will be found profitable by all our readers." 

The Bookseller, March 19th, 1909, says, " Mr. Karslake has done the editorial 
work with his usual skill and judgment." 

The Westminster Gazette, April 20, 1909, says, " A book of considerable value 
to book-collectors, booksellers, and bookmen generally. Mr. Karslake, who is, 
of course, an expert in this class of work, has evidently expended considerable care 
on his task, and the result is in every way satisfactory." 

The Daily News, April 16, 1909, says, " The volume, is, in many ways, a 
convenience." 

The Morning Post, March 13, 1909, says, " This volume ought to be of great 
service to the student of bibliography and to the connoiseur. It contains inter- 
esting information about rare editions of old books. For instance, we discover 
the title of the first book which mentions Queen Mary by name, and find many 
volumes not mentioned in Lowndes. Mr. Frank Karslake, the compiler, is well- 
known as the editor of Book-Auction Records and as a careful bibliographer." 

Notes from Sotheby's is a compilation of 2,032 Notes from Catalogues of Book- 
Sales which ha.ve taken place in the rooms of Messrs. Sotheby, Wilkinson, and 
Hodge, between the years 1885-1909, Edited by Frank Karslake. Square 8vo., 
handsomely printed on thick paper, with large margins, and having a frontispiece 
of the Amherst Sale, drawn on the spot, with key-plate of names. £1 5s. net. 
(£1 Is. to Booksellers). 

7/ is a volume which no bookseller who cares for his business should be without.

More than Pleased" 



Mr. FRANK KARSLAKE 

Editor of M Book-Auction Records" 

writes as follows : 

" Many thanks for advance copy 
of B.A.R I am more than pleased 
with it as now produced, and it does 
you very great credit in every way/' 



We are proud to receive such a letter, more so 
especially from the fact that there are few, if 
any, greater critics of typography than Mr. 
Frank Karslake. 

Now, rightly or wrongly, we feel convinced that, 
whilst keeping up the quality in every respect, we 
can save you money in the real economic sense ; 
that is to say plainly : we can produce your cata- 
logues for less than you are at present paying. 

We may be wrong, but we should like to be 
proved so. It need cost you nothing (we will 
refund the stamp for postage). Will you, there- 
fore, kindly send us a copy of your last catalogue, 
telling us the quantity you send out, when a 
quotation will be sent you immediately.

Where no sizes are given the books are 8vo. et infra. Where no 
binding is stated it is understood to be the original cloth or paper covers, as 
published. The following is a key to the abbreviations : — 

1st = first. 

bnd. =: bound 

6. I. = Black Letter 

ca. := circa (about) 

cf. = calf 

cl. = cloth 

cold. = coloured 

cont. = contemporary 

dup. = duplicate 

e. = edges 

ed. = edited 

Edinb. = Edinburgh 

edn. = edition 

engs. " = engravings 

ex. =: extra 

fo. = folio 

front. = frontispiece 

g- = gilt 

ft. 1. = Gothic Letter 

hf. = half 

g. t. = gilt tops ; same as 

top edges gilt 
w. a. f. ■=■ 

When, for example, a binding is stated to be mor. ex. t. e. g., the term 
^•fcfc- %• — K e - t°P e ^ges gilt — implies that the other edges are uncut. When 
the other edges are cut the fact is stated. In some exceptional cases — such, 
for instance, as a first edition of " Waverley " or a Keats' " Endymion " — 
when the condition of " original boards, uncut " exists, and accounts for an 
abnormal price, the description is given in full without abbreviation. 
| • In some instances autographs are stated in the sale-catalogues to be on 
the titles, or elsewhere in the books. When such autographs are not 
mentioned in B.A.R. it is only becaxise they are of no known persons, and 
have no bearing whatever on the prices realized. 

Titles are abbreviated only in the case of books in Lowndes and Brunet, 
and when not in those works the titles are given verbatim from the sale-' 
catalogue. 

The names of the auctioneers, w-ith the date of sale and the number of 
the lot, are given within brackets, immediately before the price, thus : — 
(S. Dec. 16 ; 516.) This would represent Sotheby's, December 16, 1908 ; 
lot 516., while any month from January to August refers of course to the 
year 1909. The auctioneers represented are : 

C. = Christie, Manson, & Woods P. ==; Puttick & Simpson 

H. = Hodgson & Co. S. = Sotheby, Wilkinson, & Hodge 

St. == Stevens. 
All magazines are sold not subject to return on any account. The 
term " w. a. f." (with all faults), is therefore not appended to such lots. 
^- • Composite lots — i.e. lots containing two or more works — are not re- 
corded except in very rare instances, when the value of one work over- 
shadows the others, and the lot is bought for it alone. Composite lots 
mostly afford no criterion whatever of values. 

;•; The names of binders, when of importance, are given in B.A.R. When 
not stated, although printed in the sale catalogues, the reason is obvious. 

The spelling of B.A.R. is always that of the original titles, and apparent 
errors are not misprints. The same applies to some accents in foreign 
languages of which the type does not invariably permit ; and, also, to old 
and erroneous punctuation.

* Unique Issue of this Poem. It is identical with the first published edition 
of 1765 except for the date and in not having the word " Mr." after " Rev." on 
the title. The dedication on 2 11. is the same as the 1765 issue. There was an 
earlier privately printed impression in 1764, but in this the dedication to his 
brother consisted of only 18 words in 7 lines on the recto of leaf following title, 
while the title itself was totally different, and without the author's name. Only 
two copies of this earliest issue are known, the Van- Antwerp copy and another in 
private hands. The collation of the three issues are as follows, viz. : 

1764a (Antwerp), title 1 1., Dedication 1 1., Text pp. 1-22. 

1764b (the above copy), title 1 1., Dedication 2 11., Text pp. 1-22.

This copy is further interesting as having probably been in the possession of 
John Bunyan. The " Martha Wethered " engraved on the silver oval placques 
on the binding was the daughter of Mr. G. W. Wethered of Bedford, who helped 
the Bunyan Family while John was in prison. It is said to have been used by 
Bunyan and given to Martha Wethered by Bunyan's second wife, Elizabeth.
