CATALOGUE OF BOOKS
1 [ALLOT (Robert)], Englands Parnassus or the choysest Flowers of our Moderne Poets, with their Poeticall comparisons. Descriptions of Bewties, Personages, Castles, Pallaces, Mountaines, Groues, Seas, Springs, Riuers, etc. Whereunto are annexed other various discourses, both pleasaunt and profitable. Imprinted at London for N. L. C. B. and T. H., 1600. Sm. 8vo, fine copy of this excessively rare volume, margins of last leaf and some headlines restored, blue morocco extra, gilt edges, £90.
A famous miscellany of Elizabethan poetry. It contains no less than 95 extracts from Shakespeare, as well as selected passages from the other stars of the poetical firmament of the time Spenser, Marlowe, Lodge, Greene, Gascoigne, Warner, Drayton, Watson, etc.—and has preserved some excellent verses which would otherwise have been lost to us.-See Miss Bartlett's "William Shakespeare," Contemporary Notices, p. 151. The present copy is of exceptional interest, as it possesses two original blank leaves before the title, the first of which bears the signature A, and also the original blank last leaf, thus proving that the book consists entirely of sheets of eight leaves each. These blank leaves are wanting in most of the known copies. It measures 5 x 3 in., and was rebound about 35 years ago from the original calf.
