CHAMBERS'S CYCLOPEDIA OF ENGLISH LITERATURE. A History, Critical and Biographical, of British Author (Used)
by Chambers, R, Editor.
Book ID: 10865, 10865
Boston: Gould & Lincoln 1853, two volumes, large heavy 8vo, pub's cloth, 671+703pp, woodcuts and plates throughout. This earlier edition (15th thousands") has steel engravings not seen in many later editions. A good copy, strong and sturdy but the spine ends have a few chips (one about half-an-inch square), and the back cover of the second volume is warped and stained from heavy damp exposure. On the front fly is the signature of the famous American book collector Arnold Green, and in his hand "from his mother" and dated 1854. This must have been one of his early books as his collection (dubbed at the time as "the best that this country has seen" by the NYT) was put on the market by Bangs & Brothers, with a catalog written by Green, in 1901. His collection was focused on the transcendentalists and it was massive. To this day his books can be found in used and rare book shops, always with his signature or bookplate.
