BIBLIOGRAPHICAL AND DESCRIPTIVE TOUR FROM SCARBOROUGH TO ...
by Cole, John
First edition, limited to 100 copies. Signed by the author on the verso of the dedication page. Dedicated to Francis Wrangham (1769-1842), who assembled a library which contained over 14,000 volumes and was accomplished at finding obscure and interesting titles. John Cole was a bookseller from Scarborough on whom Wrangham had great influence. This book gives a description of 100 selected titles in Wrangham's library, the notes being mainly drawn from Wrangham's private catalogue, then in MS., but destined to be printed two years later. (Michael Sadleir's Archdeacon Francis Wrangham 1769-1842. Oxford Bibl. Soc., 1937). From the library of John William Clay with his bookplate. Original paper wrappers worn along edges and hinges. Paper spine label mostly rubbed away. Unusual to find in original condition.
