Book Details

[BROWN (Arthur) CARY (Henry) & HACKMAN (Alfred)]. Catalogus Librorum Impressorum Bibliothecae Bodleianae in Academia Oxoniensi. [With:] Catalogus Impressorum Librorum Quibus Aucta Est Bibliotheca Bodleiana, Annis MDCCCXXXV-MDCCCXLVII.1843

E Typographeo Academico, Oxford. 4 Vols., folio, x,834; [ii],924;[ ii],896; [iv],1024pp., from the library of Professor Birrell, with an attractive vignette on each title-page, later buckram, nice clean set. A monumental and influential catalogue which some thought should be the model for the new British Museum catalogue. This was rejected by Panizzi who had already embarked, and in fact was well underway with his own cataloguing project. Includes the supplementary volume published eight years later.
