BIBLIOGRAPHICAL AND RETROSPECTIVE MISCELLANY, CONTAINING ...
by Poole, Edward R.
First and only edition. (Lowndes p.1912; Ulrich and Kup p.146; Halkett and Laing p.198 though pagination is stated incorrectly). Lowndes says that "this gentleman issued notices of a translation or Richard de Bury's Philobiblon, a corpus Bibliographicum, and other small works, which never appeared." This periodical contains a 12-page biography of de Bury with numerous references. Wear along hinges with part of the top of the spine missing. Covers detached. Unusual to find a specimen still preserved in the original binding.
