Vancouver: University of British Columbia Press, 1987. Two volumes. Large, thick octavo. Gilt cloth. Frontispieces. A fine set without dust jackets, as issued. First edition of this invaluable descriptive catalogue, rich in association copies, ephemera and bibliographic detail about the major and the obscure publications of the era. The holdings of Irish writers are particularly strong, and the annotations herein, based on Colbeck's many years as bookseller and collector, contain information often not found elsewhere. Edited by Tirthankar Bose, with an introduction by William E. Fredeman. The lack of an index is to be regretted, but at over one thousand pages of double column text, it is no small accomplishment. Essential. (Inventory #: WRCLIT31491)
Atlases & Maps, Americana of all periods and areas, English,American & Continental literature, Natural History, Travel, Voyages
