Titel: Great British Book Collectors and their ...
Verlag: Thoemmes Press, Bristol, 1997.
Facsimile Reprint of the 1900 edition. Hardback. Set ISBN: 1855065274. The "Book Collecting and Bibliomania" series complements that on libraries, relating the history of bibliomania through the ages. Even before the 14th century and the oft-reprinted classic "Philobiblon" by Richard de Bury, book-collecting was a habit to a few who had both education and money. Today, collections range from incunabula and fine bindings to the dust-jackets of modern first editions. This series looks at not only the collecting of books, but also manuscripts, maps, prints, autographs and all paper ephemera. It was Dibdin who gave us the word "bibliomania". This book offers his personal history of book-collecting through the ages. Bibliographical descriptions are complemented and expanded in "The Library Companion". Merryweather, Burton, Elton, Fletcher and Hazlitt relate their own and other collectors' interest, both in Britain and abroad. Together they form a biographical dictionary of pioneers in the accumulation of culture and learning. New. May show some shelfwear. Fine and unread. Buchnummer des Verkäufers A49891
