Philately. Small 4to. paper covered boards. xi pages, 924 columns (250 pages). Reprint of the 1911 first edition, being volume seven of the series of books describing this library. This uncommon bibliography of the literature of stamp-collecting is divided into two parts: (1) authors and titles, (2) periodicals. The collection was part of the famous Bibliotheca Lindesiana. Of the several thousand noble libraries founded in family houses throughout the British Isles in the last three or four hundred years, only a few dozen or so may be said to have achieved a lasting public reputation. Among them the Bibliotheca Lindesiana is distinguished not only because of the remarkable collection formed, but because its dispersal began ninety-five years ago and it no longer exists. In all over 8000 printed items are described.
