Descripción:

The arrangement of Samuel Pepys's library was a matter of great concern to him, from the commissioning of the special glazed book presses in which it is still housed to the positioning of volumes by size, with blocks cut to make t he volumes level. In the early 1690s he arranged for a catalogue to be compiled. This consists of the usual listing in order of shelf-mark to be found in earlier library catalogues, but in addition there is one of the first attemp ts at a comprehensive subject-index, an `Alphabet' of the books, their authors and topics. This is of the greatest interest to historians of libraries and of intellectual attitudes in the late seventeenth century; it can be seen a s an extension of the ideas for classification in the sciences discussed at the Royal Society (of which Pepys was President). Furthermore, additions and emendations made up to Pepys's death in 1703 shed light on Pepys's collecting practices and on a major reshelving of the library carried out in that period.

Descripción D. S. Brewer Ltd, Woodbridge, first edition, 1991, 1991. 2 vols, cloth, gilt cover device, folio, 296 x 208 mm, Part i : xxxvi, approximately 600 pages of facs, + Part ii : 370 pages of facs. This is the 2 volume facsimile set of Pepys' own library catalogue. The first volume contains a fascinating introduction covering the history of Pepys' various catalogues and his ideas on arrangement and cataloguing, followed by facsimiles of his 1700-1703 numerical listing and separate alphabetical listing of the contents of his library. The second volume reproduces in facsimile his "Appendix classica to my books, adjusted to Michaelmas 1700", essentially a subject catalogue and one of the earliest of its kind. Top edge of Part 1 slightly darkened, otherwise a Near Fine set in plain glassine dustwrappers. Nº de ref. de la librería ABE-01689
