About This Item

1834 1ed Lowndes Bibliographer's Manual English Literature FAMOUS Bibliography

William Lowndes, a 19th-century English bibliographer, wrote what is considered one of the most important and best systematic bibliographies ever published. 'The Bibliographer's Manual of English Literature' was the first work of its kind and is utterly filled with descriptive and annotative sketches of authors and their works from the earliest printing through the 19th-century. Notably, this work is still referenced today by biographers, researchers, and booksellers.

This fine 1834 first edition is beautifully leather bound with the original boards used on both volumes. An exquisite piece of an important work!
