Descripción:

OFFERING: The first bibliography on tobacco, limited to 50 examples on British handmade paper printed for private circulation. It was compiled from the first known collection with descriptions of 169 books on tobacco in the published language, English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, etc. Some examples, including this one aren't numbered. The rare specimen is in the original sewn tobacco wrappers and the limitation leaf states "no. _ of 50 copies". It was formerly owned by Robert Lang of Rye, New York, noted for his collection of British historical memorabilia and books and has no bookplate or owner label. Mounted next to some catalog entries are clippings that correct or augment descriptions and mounted on a front endpaper is an early bookseller description and five clippings, regarding the expanded second edition of 1880. RARITY: Very Rare. A worldwide search finds 22 institutional holdings, almost exclusively at major research libraries, including Cambridge, Duke, Harvard, McGill, New York Public Library, Princeton and Yale. The last reported auction sale was at Christie's in 2004 where the book was the featured work in a collection of books on tobacco that sold for 6,573 British pounds. CONDITION: Acceptable. Pages: head of gutter bumped, some top-edge and fore-edge soiling, pages 29-30 with two fore-edge tears. / Wrappers: all-around wear with stains, soiling, fingering, and abrasions, the upper side's bottom corner chipped and turned up with loss. / Binding: substantially weakened, needs to be handled with care, for wrappers with considerable loss at head of spine. PAGINATION: Complete; 46 pages including limitation statement, title page, preface, and annotated catalog illustrated with two woodcut decorations, a headpiece and tailpiece. SIZE: 213 x 173 mm.
