THE HUTH LIBRARY A CATALOGUE OF THE PRINTED BOOKS, MANUSC...
by Huth, Henry, Frederick Startridge Ellis and William Carew...
Five volumes. Reprint of the 1880 first edition, originally published by Ellis and White, London. In 1871, Mr. Huth engaged W.C. Hazlitt and F.S. Ellis to catalog his collection, the former cataloging English works, and the latter foreign. The catalog was completed and sent to press in 1876. After Mr. Huth's death, Mr. Ellis, who had edited the work from the time it was sent to press, carried it on alone. cf Pref. "The ... varied collection was especially rich in voyages, Shakespearean and early English literature and in early Spanish and German works. The Bibles ... included nearly every edition especially prized by collectors, and the manuscripts and prints were among the most beautiful of their kind."--Dict. Nat. Biog. "With the assistance of Ellis and Hazlitt, Huth had started printing a magnificent catalogue of his library, with the full titles of every item and exact collations, both entirely novel features in a library catalogue. The work was completed in five volumes two years after his death and has remained...a corner-stone of British bibliography." De Ricci, p. 151. The original is quite scarce, and sells for $2500 and more.
