The Book Collector's Guide free pdf Excerpt from The Book Collector's Guide: A Practical Handbook of British and American Bibliography It is a matter of surprise that, since the days of Lowndes and of Henry Bohn, no serious attempt should have been made to supply British and American book-collectors with a trustworthy and satisfactory guide. For the early sixties, Lowndes's Bibliographers Manual, in Henry Bohn's able recast, was quite a remarkable production. In view of the present requirements, both of bibliographers and bibliophiles, it is desperately antiquated. First of all, we know much more about English and American books than half a century ago. In various fields, the labours of such eminent men as William Blades, Henry Bradshaw, Gordon Duff, Alfred Pollard, William Greg, Thomas J.Wise, and in America, Wilberforce Eames and Luther S. Livingston, have, so to speak, given to English bibliography the status of an exact science. Even Hazlitt's shortcomings should not close our eyes to his painstaking and meritorious efforts. Many elaborate monographs, much detail work of high value by scholars too numerous to be even briefly mentioned, several extensive and accurate catalogues of great collections or important loan exhibitions, lastly the publications of such learned societies as the London Bibliographical Society or the New York Grolier Club, supply the student with a vast quantity of the most valuable material. The present book should - if it really does serve its purpose - prove a useful guide through these great bibliographical storehouses, furnishing the collector with a certain amount of indispensable information and telling him, in almost every case, where he may obtain a more minute knowledge of the same subjects.
