Begun by the late Joseph Ames .. considerably augmented by William Herbert .. and now greatly enlarged, with copious notes, and illustrated with appropriate engravings .. by the Rev. Thomas Frognall Dibdin. Four volumes, London, 1810 ,1812, 1819; 4to; each volume c. 400 - 600 pp. many titles or headings printed in red, with 14 mezzotint plates, 23 plates, and numerous facsimiles and illustrations; contemporary speckled calf, spines gilt in compartments,with five raised bands and double labels of a paler brown morocco, marbled edges and end-papers; some slight browning or spotting to the plates, which are on heavier paper, and some offsetting,; there is a chip, with loss, at the head of the spine of Volume II, the rear board of Volume IV is detached, otherwise a few short splits to joints. A very handsome and unusually bound set of this classic, though unfinished, celebration of early British printing and publishing, its authors and its collectors, itself a monument to the finest English printing and book illustration of its period. This set once belonged to the Hamburg publisher, bookseller and auctioneer Ernst Hauswedell (Lot 148 in his sale "Handbuecher eines Sammlers" , 24th November 1976). We do not know its earlier provenance. (This is a heavy item, in four quarto volumes, for which our normal postage terms will need to be varied).
