Descripción

First Edition, 4to, iv,459,[1]pp., cont. straight grain red morocco gilt, gilt armorial to both boards (with motto to upper board "Academia Oxoniensis" & to lower board "Sigill. W.W. Baronis Grenville Cancellarii Academie Oxoniensis"), lightly rubbed, a.e.g. a nice copy. Richard Gough (1735-1809), antiquary, bibliographer, topographer, Director of the Society of Antiquaries (1771-97), bequeathed to the Bodleian upwards of 3,700 volumes, many annotated by him and with printed insertions. They are mostly 18th century, but include some of the 16th, 17th and early 19th centuries. Included are his interleaved copies of his British Topography. ".the present Catalogue has been formed as nearly as possible on the plan adopted by Mr. Gough himself in his British Topography. The Books are arranged according to Counties, and, where it was practicable, chronologically. A very full and perfect Index of Names will be found at the end; so that it is hoped the present attempt will possess the advantages both of an alphabetical and a classed Catalogue."—Bulkeley Bandinel, Preface. Gough's books included many volumes from the libraries of Ducarel, Lort, Blomefield, Peter Le Neve, Hutchins, West and others. The miscellaneous part of his library was sold by public auction in 1810. N° de ref. de la librería 26272
