Bibliographical Notes on One Hundred Books Famous in English Literature (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Bibliographical Notes on One Hundred Books Famous in English Literature The relations of author with printer or publisher, the success or failure of the books, matters of illustration, and marked peculiarities of editions, issues or volumes all these things are referred to at greater or less length. In some cases, the facts have been given with fullness; but in others, like that of the Shakespeare First Folio, about which so much has been written, it was thought unnecessary to enter into details. Many of the books in the list having been already the subjects of whole bibliographies, or, having been carefully collated in other works, full collations have not been thought desirable here. It should be noted, in this connection, that the collations of books printed before the eighteenth century are given by signatures, while of books published after 1700, the paginations are given. Works of more'than two volumes have not been collated in detail. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
