From Publisher

This historical work was originally published in three volumes from 1880 to 1886 by the famed British bookman and publisher, Bernard Quaritch. This catalogue quickly established itself as the premier bibliography in its field. Beautifully illustrated with hundreds of original woodcuts depicting portraits, printers' marks, topographical scenes, and foliated initials graced many of its thousand-plus pages. Unlike many of its unannotated predecessors, Bigmore and Wyman's analytical descriptions gave a unique and strong-willed voice. The original work contained one major drawback; it lacked a comprehensive index. This edition has corrected this oversight, indexing titles, subjects, and authors. Reprint of the 1880/82/86 three-volume edition with a comprehensive index. Co-published with The British Library. Three volumes in one hardcover with a comprehensive index
