HALLIWELL-PHILLIPPS, James Orchard (1820-1889) -- A Catalogue of the Warehouse Library of J.O. Halliwell-Phillipps. London: Privately Printed by J.E. Adlard, 1876.
8o (220 x 137 mm). Modern green buckram.
One of the very few copies printed of the catalogue of the "Warehouse Library" of the Shakespeare scholar, and unappreciated son-in-law of Sir Thomas Phillipps. In the preface he states: "The following pages contain a list of books read, and books collected for reading, during the last few years. It is termed the Warehouse Catalogue, because they are deposited at the Pantechnicon, and this list has been compiled merely to guard myself against the purchase of duplicates. A few extra copies have been printed for private circulation." The most valuable work was no doubt Shakespeare's Poems, 1640. De Ricci, p. 144.
