Reprint of the very scarce first edition; this reprint is limited to 150 sets. Besterman no.5881. About 3,000 items are carefully described including information on plates. Especially useful when collating periodicals such as "The Sporting Magazine." The cost of this set was kept down by not reproducing the hundreds of full-page plates in the original printing of this reference work.
