WORKING LIBRARY OF MUSIC: MR PAUL HIRSCH.
Muir, Percy H.
An offprint from The Times Literary Supplement, Saturday April 15, 1939 which discusses the collection of Paul Hirsch. He is best known as a collector of music, with a fine collection of bindings, Goethes, Heines and Schillers in the original state, along with specimens of typography of all periods. His wife also has an amazing collection of book-binders' papers all arranged chronologically. Slightly yellowed with age.

CATALOGUE OF THE FIRST (TO FOURTH) PORTION OF THE BECKFOR...
Complete set of this massive sale. William Beckford (1760-1844) was a novelist and art and book collector who rivaled the most important collectors of his day. The collection was kept intact by the family and sold many years after his death. The first four parts are completely priced in pen in the margin with the buyer's name written in pen in the opposite margin. Some soiling of covers with a crack along the bottom of the front hinge. Library bookplate is the only library marking.
