Book Description Press of the Woolly Whale, New York, 1942. The Whale's very handsome edition of one of the most substantial treatments of this famous and elaborate auction hoax. Including bibliographical descriptions of the catalogue, its subsequent printings, and the literature on the affair, it is limited to 200 copies, printed in Centaur types on rag paper, and bears a title-page decoration by Fritz Kredel. The Fortsas hoax is legendary for having fooled many renowned collectors and dealers near the mid-point of the 19th century (1840, to be precise) into travelling to the small town of Biche, Belgium, for an auction of => nonexistent unique books that were bibliographically unknown! 8vo (21 cm; 8.25"). [6], 71, [3] pp. Publisher's quarter off-white cloth and rose-colored paper over boards, with map endpapers. Top edge gilt. Bookseller Inventory # 36339
