Publication Date: 1989

Binding: in slipcase.

Edition: First Edition..


octavo, 80pp. Cloth and quarter leather. Limited to 250 copies printed by Martino Mardersteig.

The introduction describes the events surrounding Dibdin's life in the 1820s and places the notebook in the perspective of Dibdin's career. There is also a current finding-list of the books, manuscripts, and prints Dibdin examined, compiled by David McKitterick. Very fine. Bookseller Inventory # 12266
