Descripción

2 Part in one, 8vo (215 x 135 mm), [iv], 107, [1]; [iv], [109]-220pp., first 338 lots priced with buyers names in a cont. hand, orig. half calf, rubbed, hinges cracked, head of spine chipped, 4701 lots. "George Spencer, fifth Duke of Marlborough (1766-1840), better known to book-collectors as the Marquess of Blandford, spent enormous sums of money on his library. In 1819, he was compelled by circumstances to part with his library (7 and 22 June 1819). Although the sale was brilliantly attended and such great collectors as Spencer, Heber and Grenville bought liberally, the result was disappointing. The 'Valdarfer Boccaccio' which Blandford had bought against Lord Spencer for £2,260 in the Roxburghe sale, now bought only £918.15s. and the buyer was Lord Spencer, who had lost nothing by waiting seven years." De Ricci, pp. 77-78. N° de ref. de la librería 22746
