Editiones Principes. It is compiled with the greatest care and industry, and those
who have had occasion to consult its pages, can testify to its accuracy and great
utility. It is the finest private collection in Europe; the catalogue will ever be
regarded as of the first importance to the theologian, the historian, and the critic
and as a perfect model for the bibliographer."- Lowndes.

Jackson Dibdin. London, Printed for the Author, 1821.


3 vols., royal 8vo, boards, uncut.

"This work contains much curious information respecting the Mss. and rare works in public and private libraries abroad. It is printed and embellished in the same style of excellence as the Doctor's other works."-Lowndes.

“A work calculated to have as intoxicating an effect on the imagination of literary antiquaries, as the adventures of the heroes of the Round Table on all true knights, or the tales of the early American voyagers on the ardent spirits of their age. It has not passed, however, without some hostile (though unfounded) remarks from the printers, binders, and librarians of France."- Wrangbam.

From an anecdote recorded at page 394 of this edition, concerning "certain buckskins," in the edition of 1823, and which is omitted in the subsequent ones, that acquired the title of the "Breeches Edition."

"It contains much curious and important bibliographical information not elsewhere to be found, and will at all times be consulted, as a work of reference, by the bibliographer, biographer, and historian."- Lowndes.

In this work the author concluded his tours. It is an essential companion to France

sesses an historical interest.

This edition was undertaken by Mr. Walmsly. It contains a key to the characters, etc., and a supplement, edited by Dr. Dibdin himself. The copies on large paper, imp. 8vo, have title-pages for two volumes.

"The Bibliomania is written in dialogues or conversations, the characters introduced are well-known book collectors of the author's acquaintance. The great value of the work is in the notes, which abound with anecdotes of books and book collectors, and an account of the rare articles in their collections, and the prices at which they were sold, extracted from the sale catalogues. It will be always consulted as an authority."- Lowndes.

The original manuscript in Dickinson's hand writing and in perfect condition. The
title is not in the Ms., and we have chosen a title from Sabin's Dictionary, 20014,
It is difficult to overestimate the interest of this valuable Ms. The work possessed
sufficient interest to make it pass through numerous editions, the last being dated
1811. It contains some items of minor interest which are not in the printed copy,
also a postscript.
