The Book Collector. 1952 to 1967


"This is a complete set of Book Collector quarterly magazine from Vol 1 No. 1, 1952, to Vol. 16 No. 4, 1967. Ex Westminster Public Libraries, this set is library bound in navy blue buckram-covered boards with blind-stamped crest to front and gilt titles to spine (no jackets). In overall very good condition, Volumes 1 is 5 x 7 inches titled Book Collector (Formerly Book Handbook), and the rest are 6 x 9 inches, with Vols 2 and 3 titled Book Collector (Formerly Book Handbook) and Vols. 4 to 16 titled Book Collector only. In all cases the boards are in very good condition with only minor signs of handling and storage - slight marks and rubbing. Top edges are a little dust-marked. Bindings are tight and appear little used. No annotations or inscriptions throughout. Westminster Public Libraries bookplate to front paste-down in each copy but none of the usual stamps or labels associated with library books. Text and illustrations are clean and clear throughout. Indexes are bound into each copy. We also have a two volume set, in the same binding, of Book Handbook covering the years 1947 to 1951 - these are listed seperately but would make a handsome addition to this set. Please contact us for more information and photographs. These items can be viewed by arrangement. This set weighs nearly 20 kg and our price includes p&p in the UK. For overseas purchasers we will ship by arrangement at cost."
