1934 An Enquiry into the Nature of Certain Nineteenth Century Pamphlets
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper
Written by John Carter and Graham Pollard, the work is noted as uncovering the vast amounts of forged privately printed and "pre-first" books and pamphlets that were held in the then-reputable library of Thomas J. Wise, including works by Dickens, Tennyson and the Brownings. A fascinating volume, the work is considerably involved, and brought about revisions in bibliographies the world over. Direct from the library of the late Hugh Selbourne MD (1906-1973), a noted book collector and diarist. Complete with original price-clipped dustwrapper.
In cloth binding with gilt detailing and original price-clipped dustwrapper. Externally very smart, with minor shelfwear only. Internally, firmly bound. Pages bright and clean throughout. Dustwrapper extremely smart with minor chipping and sunning to backstrip.
