Sinopsis: A fine copy. First edition. Cloth. Sm. 4to. xxiv, 83 pp. Illus. with 8 b/w plates. John Morris (1580-1658) was a wealthy dilettante, ranked among the second wealthiest groups of inhabitants of London. " But despite his dilettantism and sterility of his scholarship, Morris was a first rate bookman. Although his library [consisting of 1500 volumes] contains few incunables, he had a lively interest in typography and in the dissemenation of printing. Even more important was his thorough knowledge of the London book-trade."

Descripción British Museum Publications for the British Library, London, firstedition, 1976, 1976. Cloth, 4to, xxiv, 83 pp,  leaves of plates. Contents include: Foreword; Preface; Introduction; Notes; I The Catalogue: Manuscripts Owned by John Morris Among the Royal Mss in the British Museum; Books Owned by John Morris Not Listed in Orc and Not in the British Museum. Index of Owners. Concordance of Shelfmarks. From Howard M. Nixon's preface: For many years the initials I.M. at the foot of the spine of a considerable number of books bound by Samuel Mearne in the standard Charles II red turkey leather bindings of the Old Royal Library have puzzled both staff and readers alike. It was clear that the initials (added as a pressmark when the books reached the Museum with the rest of the Old Royal Library in 1757) stood for John Morris, since he signed his name in almost every book in a version—such as Giovanni Maurizio—adapted to the language of the book. But beyond his name nothing seemed to be known about him. . We are very grateful to Professor Birrell for discovering who John Morris was, for showing him to be one of the most interesting of the Library's benefactors, and for the great care and skill with which he has edited this catalogue of his library." From the introduction: "After the Restoration of Charles II the first major accession to the Old Royal Library at St James's was tine Dbrary of John Morris, acquired from his widow at Isleworth by ThomasRoss, the Royal Librarian. John Morris was a wealthy dilettante. .In 1640 John Morris was ranked among the second wealthiest group of inhabitants of London. He had two houses, one at London Bridge, by the waterworks, and one at Isleworth, Middlesex, with an extensive herb-garden, where in his later years he principally resided.There are two main sources for our knowledge of John Morris: his library itself and the collection of his letters, now in the University Library at Utrecht, to the Dutch scholar Johannes de Laet."
