THOMAS JEFFERSON McKEE was born in the City 
of New York, March 9, 1840, the son of Henry and Mary 
Anderson McKee, both natives of that city. He attended the 
old Thirteenth Street School until 1853, going from there to 
the Free Academy (now the College of the City of New York), 
from which institution he graduated in 1858. Choosing the 
legal profession as his life-work, he entered the law office of 
John B. Stevens, and, in a few years, was fairly launched on a 
promising career. In 1863 his services were called for, in 
defense of his country, and he left New York for the front, with 
his regiment, the Twenty-second, N. G., S. N. Y., being away 
some months, and taking part in the battle of Gettysburg. On 
his return, with health somewhat impaired, he applied himself 
assiduously to his law business, and soon attained marked suc- 
cess, particularly in his chosen branch, as a Real Estate and 
Corporation Lawyer. He was counsel for over 25 years for 
one of the New York banks, and Trustee and Executor for a 
number of large estates. In 1896 his health failed, and in a 
short time he was compelled to give up all active pursuits. He 
lingered, in patient endurance, nearly four years, and finally 
entered into rest on July 16, 1899. 

The collection of Books, Manuscripts, Autograph Letters, 
Original Drawings, Engravings, and Play Bills formed by Mr. 
McKee, and now about to be dispersed, cannot be rightly 
estimated, except in connection with the personality and aims 
of the one who gathered it. 

His aims were definite, and he did nothing hap-hazard. 
Every item in his collection was a link in a chain, and possessed 
to him a distinctive interest. 

An early and inherited love for the Drama, together with an 
insatiable desire for knowledge regarding its history and ex- 
ponents, led to the formation of doubtless the most complete 
and comprehensive collection on that subject ever gathered in 
America. 



Recognizing the fact that English Literature could only be 
rightly interpreted when studied "from the foundations up," he 
began to gather such early specimens as came within his reach 
and means, in the days when so many others were captivated 
with showy art works, Dibdiniana, and the like. At that 
time, and with that object in mind, the initial steps were laid 
for the formation of his very choice collection of Old English 
Literature in Prose and Verse which is notable among the fine 
American collections in that line. 

The same reasoning he applied to Early American Liter- 
ature, and covered the ground in the same thorough way, as 
evidenced by the contents of this Catalogue. 

He collected first editions of English and American Authors, 
in the early days, because he found an element in their writings 
presaging immortality. Many were gathered when the authors 
were unknown, or unappreciated. 

His judgment was sound, and he made few mistakes. There 
is in the collection no representation of that class of authors 
who are but "a remembrance," — their works in great demand at 
one period, and unheard of ever after. 

He gathered books omniverously in the earlier years of his 
collectorship, and the library as it now stands with all its wealth 
of material, represents but a portion of all that he accumulated. 
As the years passed, certain lines of literature in which he had 
formerly been interested lost their hold upon him, and he settled 
on the final composition of his library. To allow of a greater 
freedom in purchases, and to make room for later acquisitions, he 
disposed of two choice and extensive collections of books by 
public auction sale. Included were his notable gathering of 
works illustrated by the Cruikshanks, Rowlandson, Leech," Phiz," 
and other English illustrators. Sporting Works, First Editions 
of Dickens and Thackeray, a fine collection of Shakespeariana, 
sets of the best editions of Standard English Authors, works on 
the Fine Arts, etc. This enabled him to concentrate his atten- 
tion on those parts of his collection which were to him of para- 
mount interest. 

His marked success in gathering together such a collection 
cannot be wholly attributed to the qualities generally presumed 
to be requisite for its accomplishment. He possessed zeal, 
knowledge, and perseverance, and made abundant use of them. 



but other, and even more important qualities of mind and dis- 
position supplemented these, and gave him special advantages. 

Brimful of good nature and generous to a degree, in thought 
and deed, he was a true friend to all booksellers, and it was a 
pleasure for them to approach him with their wares. Meanness 
was to him an unknown quantity. Mr. McKee was always 
willing to pay a good price for a good book, and in the lines of 
his collecting he was for many years one of the recipients of the 
valuable benefits' derived by those who have that reputation. 

He possessed, and could depend upon, his intuitions. Some 
of the choice nuggets in the collection came to him at unex- 
pected times, and in unexpected places, when no sources of 
information were at hand, and a quick decision was necessary. 

He was a reader, as well as a lover of his books, and the in- 
formation he acquired was freely imparted to others. Probably 
no private library in New York was so open to those seeking 
data for literary and dramatic work, as is evidenced by the 
numerous acknowledgments contained in books and magazines, 
of help accorded the writers from the use of his material. His 
friend, Edmund Clarence Stedman has characterized him, "The 
most obliging of Bibliophilists." 

Mr. McKee's interest in American Poetry dated from about 
the time of the dispersion of the library of Albert G. Greene, 
in 1869, at which he was a purchaser. Later, at the C. Fiske 
Harris and Brinley sales, he made notable additions to his col- 
lection, and from that time, whenever opportunity presented, he 
was a ready purchaser of American Poetry. 

In the earlier days, there were but few who recognized the 
peculiarly distinctive qualities of this species of literature, — 
Evert A. Duyckinck, whose collection is now a part of the New 
York Public Library (Lenox Branch) was a shining exarnple, — 
and even to-day there are comparatively few who realize the 
possibilities in it. 

Mr. McKee found, on examination, that the real History of 
America was closely interwoven with its Poetry ; that to an ex- 
ceptional degree the poems were filled with local and personal 
allusions, and contained valuable biography unobtainable else- 
where ; that it was largely a reflex of the manners and customs 
of the' American people,— in fact, among the most interestmg 
of the world's poetry, as a study. Besides this, as an enthusi- 



astic American, he delighted to trace the upward growth^ of his 
Country's Literature from the oftentime crude productions of 
its early writers. 

A critical inspection of the books in this portion of the 
library will show that with a few exceptions, every volume 
possesses more or less of the qualities indicated. Mr. McKee 
could not tolerate "glittering generalities" in poetry. There 
must needs be something definite in it to win his interest. He 
purchased Eastern, Western, and Southern poetry, that he 
might study the different types, and obtain a more comprehen- 
sive view. But few of his most intimate friends were aware of 
the wide scope of his knowledge regarding the history, growth, 
and merit of American Literature. While possessing to an ex- 
traordinary degree the so-called collector's instinct, he did not 
rest content with knowledge of author's names, dates of first 
editions, and all the minutiae that pertains to collectorship, in 
all of which he was thoroughly versed, but he was familiar with 
the life history of the different authors, the circumstances under 
which the books were written and brought before the public, 
their relation to the period in which they were produced, and 
the critical estimate placed upon them by contemporary and 
later writers. All this gave zest to his pursuits, and enabled 
him to derive additional pleasure from his possessions. 

Perhaps no better basis for an estimate of the strength of 
this collection in the earlier printed poetical works can be 
obtained than by a reference to some others. Bearing in mind 
the exceptional opportunities possessed by such early collectors 
of American Poetry as Greene, Brinley, Harris, Duyckinck, and 
Anthony, it will be conceded that any item they were collectively 
unable to secure must be very rare, and yet Mr. McKee pos- 
sessed many such. He secured over thirty items printed 
before 1800 that are not included in Kettell's remarkable list 
(1829). 

A remark made by Mr. McKee to the writer, years ago, may 
be quoted as embodying Mr. McKee's ideas on this subject. 
He said : " American collectors cannot afford to ignore two 
species of books, American History and American Literature. 
Those who do are likely to regret it when too late, for not only 
do they possess the highest interest, but the day is comino- when 
they will be sought for with the same avidity that early English 
Literature is now." 



As to the condition of the books forming this collection, it 
can truthfully be stated that it is much above the average. A 
very large proportion of the volumes are in condition calculated 
to please the most fastidious (many of the best known binders 
being represented), while the bulk of the remainder are good, 
sound copies. 

Mr. McKee was particular as to the condition of the books 
he purchased, but not finical. He would not pass by a really 
rare volume because of some ordinary defect, but purchased it, 
and awaited the opportunity of securing another, and a better, 
copy. The copies which satisfied Heber, Corser, Maidment, 
JoUey, Mitford, Perkins, Gaisford, Crawford, Brinley, Griswold, 
and others, were deemed worthy of a place on his shelves. 

The intending purchasers at this sale need have no misgivings. 
The volumes speak for themselves as to condition. An honest 
and intelligent endeavor has been made to discover and describe 
every defect, however slight. All important books have been 
carefully collated.

double of pure white parchment, wide dentelle borders, vellum fly-leaves, with the orii;- 
INAL covers bound IN, ENTIRELY UNCUT, by LoRTic FiLS, enclosed in crushed levant 
morocco pull-off case, blind tooled, signed by the binder in three places. 

This copy remains, AS published, in the original paper wrappers, uncut. It has 
simply been encased in a magnificent costly binding which has enhanced its value 
rather than depreciated it, and in answer to those hyper-critical ones who have imagined 
the contrary, it need only be said that the binding could be easily detached at any time, 
leaving the poem in its pristine form. But three copies are known to be in exist- 
ence, and one of them — that in the British Museum — lacks the covers.

601 POE (EDGAR ALLAN). The Broadway Journal. Edited by 
C. F. Briggs, Edgar A. Poe, and Henry C. Watson. Vols. I. and II. 
(all published). New York: 1845-6. 

2 vols. 4to, half roan, pp. 416-412. 

POE'S OWN COPY. It bears the inscriptions, " To S. H. W. (Sarah Helen Whit- 
man) FROM E. A. P." and " Given to S. H. W. by E. A. P. October 1848," (both 
IN the Poet's handwriting). On the margin of the first number he has written; 
" N.B — It was not until No 10 that I had anything to do with this Journal 
AS Editor." In addition to all the articles in this work bearing his name, he has 

marked in this — his own copy — EVERY UNSIGNED ARTICLE OF HIS COMPOSITION, WITH 
THE LETTER " P." THERE ARE OVER EIGHTY ITEMS SO MARKED, pOCmS, prose articles 

and reviews. Besides this, there are numerous annotations in his handwriting, in 

ONE OF which he NAMES LOWELL AS THE AUTHOR OF A LONG REVIEW. One marginal 

reference mentions the fact of "Ligeia" being suggested to him in a dream, and in 
another, is clearly indicated the origin of the name "Lenore." The Journal 
contained original contributions from many of the best known writers of that period, 
including J. R. Lowell, Maria White (afterwards his wife), Walt Whitman, and 
others. Mrs. Whitman presented the volumes to J. H. Ingram, the Editor of Poe's 
writings. In a few instances, Mr. Ingram cut out the leaves containing certain articles 
for printer's "copy," but they have been replaced. An item of extraordinary liter- 
ary INTEREST.

Manuscript copy, 4to, limp green morocco, pp. 76. 

The Unique Copy of this play by Governor Hunter of New York (assisted 6y 
Chief Justice Lewis Morris) was formerly in the possession of John Philip Kemble, 
at whose sale in 1821 it was purchased by W. B. Rhodes. At the dispersal of the 
Rhodes collection in 1823, it passed into the possession of the Duke of Devonshire, 
in whose library it still reposes. In l88o, the then Duke, in consideration of the pay- 
ment of ten guineas, allowed this single manuscript copy to be made. Its first owner 
was George H. Moore, of the Lenox Library, from whom it was purchased by Mr. 
Charles R. Hildeburn. It passed from his hands to those of Mr. McKee. The 
original check paid for the copy, with the Duke's signature on its back, accompanies 
the play. 

The copy in the Duke's library was printed in New York by William Bradford, 
and CONTAINS corrections that run all through the piece, together with a Key to 
the Characters, which makes it quite certain to have been the Author's copy. All 
these have been incorporated in this Manuscript copy. 

' ' The characters are admirably and sharply drawn, and it abounds in genuine humor. 
The part of ' Tom of Bedlam' is almost as good in his use of words as Mrs. Mala- 
prop. Altogether it cannot be ranked in cleverness by any play of American origin for 
many years, and it is THE FIRST, BOTH written and printed in America." — Paul 
Leicester Ford.

'Y'HE Dramatic portion of the McKee Library necessarily 
extends into three catalogues — with a possible overflow 
into a fourth. It will be borne in mind that the collection of 
American Plays has already been dispersed. The succeeding one 
will contain the remarkably choice lot of Early English Plays, 
together with the collected editions of the Early Dramatists, 
including the Shakespeare Folios. 

The present Catalogue represents, therefore, but a portion 
of Mr. McKee's Dramatic Library, and, moreover, contains 
only such items as pertain strictly to the Drama. The number 
could have been greatly augmented by the introduction of 
works usually classed under the heading of Drama, but which 
relate to its history in only a remote way. As a rule, the Manu- 
scripts, Books of Portraits, Works with Autographic Material, 
and Playbills, will not be found in this Catalogue — though many 
notable exceptions have been made. The items will be easily 
recognized. 

Mr. McKee was an enthusiastic student of the Drama, and 
his knowledge on the subject was all-embracing and exhaustive. 
Particularly was this true as regards its early history, both in 
England and America. While most works on the Drama 
appealed to him as a purchaser, because of his innate desire for 
knowledge not already possessed, and to extend encouragement 
to those who were disposed to contribute to its literature, his 
main endeavor was to secure the "foundation stones," on which 
the whole dramatic superstructure rests. The measure of suc- 
cess he attained is evidenced by the presence in the collection of 
such items as Northbrooke, Gosson, Heywood, Green, Downes, 
etc., in Early English, and the rare works relating to the intro- 
duction of the Drama in New York, Philadelphia, Boston, and 
other American cities. He was constantly in search of material 
that might throw new light on these particular phases of stage 
history. 

Many interesting and important items which should have 
been placed in the preceding and present portions of the Cata- 
logue were discovered when too late for insertion with the rest. 
They will be included in the fifth and final portion.

8vo, half red morocco, gilt top. Frontispiece, containing the only known 
portrait of "Tony" Aston. 

Mr. Lowe states that this is A tract of extreme rarity — and he is undoubtedly- 
correct. The American Dramatic Historians — Dunlap, Seilhamer, Ireland, and 
others have either settled on about 1750 as the date of the introduction of the Drama 
in this country, or have aimed to carry it back to about 1730. The Sketch of Aston's 
Life clearly shows that Theatrical performances were given in New York and 
other American Towns many years before 1730, and indicates him to have been 
the first kn©wn professional who performed on the American Stage. He 
mentions having visited New York, East and West Jersey, Maryland, Virginia, 
North and South Carolina and South Florida.

Small 4to, half calf, pp. 114. Colored scenic engravings, designed and en- 
graved by J. FiNDLAY. 

Mr. Lowe mentions as a curious fact that the title-page of the copy he had seen 
was dated 1826. This bears date of 1821. Apparently the work was intended 
to be complete in twelve issues, and number thirteen was the beginning of a new 
series, which was not completed. The colored plates contain portraitures of 
Macready, John Vandenhoff, Henry Johnstone, Mrs. Egerton and others, 
with a fine colored representation of the interior of the Haymaeket Theatre. 
The work is exceedingly rare.

by Gen. Chas. W. Sandford. It opened July 4, 1825, William Dinneford being- 
Stage Manager. It burned to the ground April 11, 1829. Many of the most prominent 
actors of the period appeared on it's boards. The Equestrian Drama was well 
represented in the performances at this Theatre, James Hunter being Director of the 
Circus. These records show the amounts paid the different performers, and the force 
generally, during the years 1825-7, the names including W. R. Blake, Mrs. Pelby, 
the Stickneys, and others.

Small 4to, half brown levant morocco, gilt top, pp. 48. 

Extremely rare. This work was an emanation from the Anti-Theatrical 
Party who so bitterly opposed the introduction of the Drama into Philadelphia by 
William and Lewis Hallam in 1754. Durang in his "History of the Philadelphia 
Stage " mentions this publication as having been distributed gratis throughout the City; 
but BEING UNABLE TO LOCATE A COPY, he says it likely contained the Burnet and 
TiLLOTSON quotations which had been made use of by another party (A. B.), who had 
contributed to the newspaper controversies — which it does not.

i2rao, original calf, pp. 92. Portrait (by Bell), and frontispiece to the Tales. 

This work differs in title and collation from the copy of ' ' Spiller's Jests " 
belonging to the late George Daniel, and differs also in title from his copy of " The 
Comedian's Tales," which is the page-heading of this volume. It seems to be an 
edition of The Comedian's Tales made up to take advantage of the use of Mr. 
Spiller's name, which at that time {just following his decease^ was potent. Mr. 
Daniel (than whom was no better authority) states that he never was able to trace 

ANY other copy THAN HIS OWN OF EITHER THE " JeSTS " OR " TALES," thoUgh We 

now know that the British Museum possesses one of the former; but this copy 

SEEMS to possess ELEMENTS OF INTEREST THAT EVEN THEY DO NOT, TO SAY 
NOTHING OF ITS UNDOUBTED RARITY.

''T'HE collection of Books described in this Catalogue forms one 
of the more important divisions of the McKee Library, and 
presents for dispersal what is undoubtedly the finest and most 
extensive collection of Early English Plays ever offered at 
public sale in America. 

While it forms a portion — the concluding and most valuable 
portion — of Mr. McKee's Dramatic Library, it possesses ele- 
ments of marked interest that will appeal to many who profess 
to ignore the Drama. 

As in Art, the works of Rubens, Raphael, Michael Angelo, 
and a few others, stand supreme and unrivalled, so the plays 
of Shakespeare, Jonson, Fletcher, Chapman, Massinger, and 
others, are destined to immortality — in fact, have already 
attained it. They, too, are veritable Old Masters. Their works 
have been gathered into sets, edition following edition, until the 
purchaser has a wide range of choice. Most of the important 
writers of the last century have taken the works of these 
master-minds of English literature as subjects of their highest 
eulogiums. Who can read Charles Lamb and James Russell 
Lowell, and ignore the Old English Dramatists ? 

Hardly a notable library has been gathered in the past 
century which has not comprised a fair representation of Old 
English Plays — the originals when procurable, otherwise, in 
collected editions. The greater the library the larger has been 
the representation. 

It is generally admitted that the manners, morals, and 
customs of those times are nowhere more clearly portrayed 
than in the Plays of the Dramatic Poets. They are, truly, 
" Mirrors held up to Nature," and it is because of the faith- 
fulness of the reproduction that the spots and blemishes 
appear. 

The proportion of Poetry included with these Plays is much 
larger than would be imagined by one unfamiliar with their 
contents. The numerous commendatory verses are by such 
poets as Ben Jonson, Cokain, Cowley, Beaumont, Fletcher, 
Dryden, and others of equal rank. 

A collector of Early English Poetry must necessarily be a 
collector of Early English Plays. 



TN the interest of intending purchasers unable to make per- 
sonal inspection of the volumes, extraordinary care has been 
exercised in the descriptions, and they may be absolutely de- 
pended upon. In many cases detailed mention has been made 
of trifling defects which in previous descriptions of the identical 
copies, were not deemed of sufficient importance to notice.

leading poets of the time, including Cokaine, Waller, Lovelace, Habington,

There were no fewer than THREE different editions of this play in 1605. 

In the prologue of this edition, line 5, reads "opposde." On E I verso, will be 
found the quotation, " inough is as good as a Feast." 

In consequence of the reflections upon the Scotch, the three authors were impris- 
oned, by James ist, in the Fleet. They, however, received pardons. The offensive 
parts are omitted in all but a few copies of the first issue. 

From this play Hogarth is supposed to have taken the idea of his set of prints 
called, " The Industrious and Idle Prentices."

" These two plays met with great success when performed; The Prologue to the 
First Part was spoken by Nell Gwyn in a broad-brimm'd hat and waist-belt; one 
Nokes having appeared, in some play, in an enormous hat which pleased the audience 
so much, as to help off a bad play merely by the. effect of it, Dryden caused a hat to be 
made the circumference of a coach wheel, and when Nell Gwynn appeared in that 
strange dress, the house was immediately in convulsions; the King wanted but little of 
being suffocated with laughter." 

The volume also contains a dedication to the Duke of York, eight pages; An Essay 
" of Heroique Playes," ten pages; and at the end of the Second Part is a " Defence 
of the Epilogue, or, an Essay on the Dramatique Poetry of the last Age," sixteen pages.

was published 1671. This Catalogue was printed Alphabetically, as to the names of 
the plays, but promiscuously as to those of the Authors, (Shakspeare, Fletcher, 
Johnson, and some others of the most voluminous Authors excepted) each Authors 
Name being placed over against each Play that he writ, and still repeated with every 
several play, till a new Author came on." — Langbaine. 

The Catalogue records the titles of 806 plays.

These diverting volumes form a collection of various drolls and farces, vi^hich were

comic) borrowed from the plays of Shakespeare, Beaumont and Fletcher, 
Marston, Shirley, &c., and presented by themselves under new titles. The editor 
of this collection was Francis Kirkman, a bookseller, and a great purveyor of 
dramatic writings. The second part is supposed to have been written by Robert 
Cox, the comedian.

"This play is altered from Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice, and in some

Jew is placed at a separate table, and drinks to his Money as his only mistress, is 
a happy thought. The Prologue was written by Bevill Higgons, in which the

8 vols. i2rao, half dark blue calf, blind tooled and gilt backs, sprinkled edges, in 

FINE, CLEAN CONDITION. 

This edition is identical in text with The First Scottish Edition of Shake- 
speare published in 1753, and edited by the celebrated Dr. Hugh Blair. 

This copy was purchased by Mr. McKee from Mr. George Tawze, an intelligent 
and enterprising Scotch bookseller, who came to New York in 1872 with a large 
collection of rare and valuable books, which he exhibited for sale in a store on Broad- 
way, opposite AsTOR Place. 

Mr. Tawze has inserted in Vol. I. an extremely interesting manuscript note, 
giving a circumstantial account of the remarkable providence by which THIS ines- 
timable literary treasure came into his possession. 

The following is an exact transcript of Mr. Tawze's ms. note, including his 
signature. 

"BURNS' OWN SHAKESPEAR." 

" This Edition of the Works of William Shakespear formerly belonged to 
Robert Burns, the Scottish Poet, and bears his manly autograph on the Title- 
page. 

It was presented to the Poet by the Editor, the Rev. Dr Hugh Blair, Professor 
of Belle Lettres in the University of Edinburgh, and was accompanied by a letter 
from Dk Blair, I believe now lost. The Book was presented by M^s Burns, after 
the Poet's death, to Mrs * * x * (the Mother of Mrs James, High Street, Dumfries) 
who was a neighbour of the Poet & his family in the Wee Vennel Dumfries, & a fast 
friend of Mrs Burns until her death. I lodged in the house of Mrs James for some 
months in the end of 1846, and heard her mother's & her own Reminiscences of Scot- 
land's Poet, and through Mrs James, I purchased from the Old Lady (whose name 
I cannot recall to remembrance) this priceless work, in November 1846."

yellow edges. With the excessively rare portrait of the poet, engraved by 
R. Field, which is peculiarly valuable and interesting as the First Portrait 
of Shakespeare engraved in America. 

This copy is, unfortunately, imperfect and incomplete. All the title-pages, except- 
ing those of the first and sixth volumes, have been torn out by some former owner; 
and the eighth volume is wanting. 

It may be safely asserted that a complete and perfect copy of this first American 
edition of Shakespeare is one of the rarest works in the whole range of 
American literature and typography. No more than twelve copies are at 
present known to collectors, and four of these are imperfect. The por-

Satire has always shown among the rest, 

And is the boldest way, if not the best.

To laugh at their vain deeds, and vainer thoughts. 

In satire, too, the wise took diff'rent ways. 

To each deserving it's peculiar praise.

8vo. FIRST AMERICAN EDITION, bound in full olive crushed levant 
morocco, gilt back and top, corner ornaments on sides, inside morocco borders. 
"Essays from the Idler" at end. There are good reasons for supposing that the 
Dublin (first) Edition of this celebrated comedy was not issued before 1781. 
The enterprise of this Scottish-American bookseller in so quickly recognizing it's 
merit, and re-printing it, is noteworthy. He was one of the most interesting 
characters in American Literary Annals, and " Bell Imprints " are surely 
destined to have an increasing demand -among collectors. This is one of the 
rarest issues of his press, a very fine copy. 

The edition printed by Hugh Gaine in New York in 17S6 from a manuscript copy 
furnished by John Henry, the manager of the old John Street Theatre, and 
which he claimed was presented to him by Sheridan himself, has hitherto been sup- 
posed to be the earliest American edition.

'P'HE Volumes selected for description in this portion of the 
McKee collection have been strictly limited to those 
written by Sixteenth and Seventeenth Century Authors, though 
in a few cases the works bear a later date. 

Much that might have been said, bibliographically, in de- 
scribing the books in this catalogue remains unsaid, because 
unnecessary. Any attempt to give such information to those 
who measure up to the purchase of Early English Literature, 
would be like "carrying coals to Newcastle." 

In the interest of intending purchasers unable to make 
personal inspection of the volumes, extraordinary care has been 
exercised in the descriptions of the works now offered for sale. 
In many cases detailed mention has been made of trifling defects 
which in previous descriptions of the identical copies were not 
deemed of sufficient importance to notice. 

It is fitting that a special acknowledgment should be made 
of the valuable aid afforded by the use of the " Catalogue of 
Original and Early Editions of some of the Poetical and Prose 
Works of English Writers from Langland to Wither," issued by 
the Grolier Club. It is a question whether any known work, 
on strictly bibliographical lines, can be more absolutely depended 
upon.

2717 ALEXANDER (WILLIAM, Earl of Stirling). 

Recreations 
With the 

MVSES. 



By William Earle of 
Sterline 



London. 

Printed by Tho. Harper. 
1637. 

Small folio, original calf, gilt ornaments on back and corners, gilt panels on sides, 
with device in centre. Brilliant impression of the excessively rare portrait of 
the Author engraved by William Marshall. Title within engraved border. 
From the Earl of Westmoreland's collection, containing his book label on inside 
cover, together with his written motto on top margin of verso of portrait. (A slight 
tear in the lower margin of the portrait has been neatly repaired.) 

The following extract from the Bibliotheca Anglo Poetica [18 1 5] will attest the 
extraordinary value of such a copy as this : 

"The circumstance which so much enhances the value of the present fine copy of this 
■work, is that it possesses a most brilliant ifnpression of the rare portrait of the Earl of 
Stirling, engraved by Marshall, and UNDOUBTEDLY THAT ARTIST'S MASTERPIECE. It 
is conjectured that it was engraved in order thai the noble author might present a few 
copies to particular friends, and that the copper was then broke up — be it as it may, 
IT IS DOUBTFUL IF THERE ARE SO MANY AS THREE NOW KNOWN." 

For the copy above spoken of fifty pounds was asked in 1815. It is described as 
bound in russia, and as this copy is in the original binding, crisp and clean as on 
THE DAY OF ISSUE, IT IS UNQUESTIONABLY THE BETTER. The portrait has all the 
original margins, and THE impression is rich and velvety.

INTERESTING WORK. Device on title. 

It is the FIRST POETICAL ANTHOLOGY OF ENGLISH LITERATURE, and IS also the 
MOST VALUABLE. This extremely rare Selection from Shakespeare and other Poets 
has enabled Editors to assign to their true authors various pieces not otherwise known. 
It has also preserved numerous verses of the Elizabethan and ante-Elizabethan period 
nowhere else to be met with, and the names of poets who are not otherwise known in 
literary history than by their mention in England's Parnassus. It contains no less 

THAN 79 extracts FROM SHAKESPEARE ALONE.

thirty others). LONDON, Printed by Robert Raworth, for Mathewe 
Walbancke. 1636, 

4to. Bound in half dark brown morocco, gilt edges. Engraved frontispiece 
of the CoTSWOLD Games (early reproduction), mounted. The title has also been neatly 
mounted, and bears the Autographs of Thomas and Richard Ross. (1664). The head- 
lines of a few leaves cut int6, and a small hole in one. Last leaf (K 2) missing. Mr. 
J. Halliwell-Phillipps's copy, with a note in his handwriting. 

Rare. Mr. Dover was eminently a man " of parts.'' He conducted these noted 
games for 40 years, wrote a poem in response to the tributes herein contained, and is 
addressed as "the great Architect and Inginere of the Famous and Admirable Portable 
Fabricke of Dover Castle." The book possesses Shakespearean interest, as the 
Poet speaks of a stout fellow as a Cotswoldman.

Cum Priuilegio ad imprimendum folum. 

Sm. folio. IffilacFt XCttCC, Second edition. Bound in full brown polished calf, 
richly gilt back, sprinkled edges. Name of former owner on title. The margins are, 
with hardly an exception, of AMPLE PROPORTIONS, and the leaves are clean and 
CRISP. The work contains numerous most curious woodcut engravings. 
Exceptionally fine copy. 

The design of this remarkable work (originally written by Sebastian Brandt of Basle, 
about 1494) was to ridicule the prevailing follies and vices of every rank and profes- 
sion, under the allegory of a ship freighted with fools. " Barclay's version is not 
merely a translation, but more of a paraphrase, with considerable additions, gleaned 
from the follies of his own countrymen." — Corser. 

Bearing in mind that the work was written about 1494, the reference to the 
DISCOVERY OF AMERICA, as given on page 131, possesses extraordinary 
interest:

from the Latin of Dominike Mancin, and the five Eclogues translated from the 
Latin of Eneas Silvius. These do not appear in the earlier printed edition 
OF 1509.

The Retrospective Review says: "The conclusion appears to us inevitable that 
Chalkhill was merely a nomme de guerre. Whether Walton himself was the 
author of the poem may admit of more controversy. We are ourselves strongly 
convinced he was, and we think any person who takes the trouble we have 

DONE in investigating THE CIRCUMSTANCES AND IN COMPARING THE ThEALMA WITH 
THE ACKNOWLEDGED PRODUCTIONS OF WALTON WILL COME TO THE SAME CONCLU- 
SION."

page of the Poems also contains an Autograph, " Biron," but apparently in an earlier 
handwriting. The volume contains " The Angler's Ballad," which fills six pages, 
and describes the proper equipment of a jolly fisherman when he goes a-fishing ; also a 
poem " To my dear and most worthy Friend, Mr Isaac Walton."

neatly inlaid, a small portion of border supplied, a few margins and bookworm holes 
skillfully repaired. In other respects a fine copy, with ample margi.vs. 

Rare. On page 215 appears the note signed " W. S. & R. B.," doubtless intended 
for William Shakespeare and Richard Burbage. Davies was an associate of 
Shakespeare. So difficult did Dr. Grosart find it to locate a copy of this first 
edition that he mentions it as "almost unique."

Perhaps the rarest of all this writer's numerous works. Mr. Lilly 
marked a copy with title in MS. £2\, which was the Bibl. Anglo. Poet, copy 
marked .^25, and sold afterwards in the Perry sale at £1%. It came into possession 
of Mr. Park, who wrote on the fly-leaf, ' ' This is the only copy I have ever

fly-leaf. Fine Copy. 

Excessively Rare. One of the most important collections of the early 
poetical writers, and considered to be the most valuable miscellany of the 
DAY. The contributors were Sir Philip Sidney, Edmund Spenser, Sir Walter 
Raleigh, Sir John Davies, Mary Countess of Pembroke, Sir Henry Wotton, 
John Donne, Robert Greene, Thomas Campion, Francis Davison, his Brother 
Walter, and others. The first edition was published in 1602, and of that but one 
copy is known to exist, and that is imperfect, This is the last of the original 
EDITIONS, and considered THE BEST, as the contents were entirely re-arranged. The 
work has been twice re-printed, at the Lee Priory Press (lOo copies), and in two vols. 
London, 1826 (250 copies).

This copy, in the Gordonstoun Sale, was described as of date 1659, the date on 
the Colophon being accepted as correct. As Thomas Berthelet died in 1556, the 
presumption is that the XL of the Colophon date was reversed in printing, and the 
title date of 1549 is the correct one.

Return. | [London.] Printed by R. & W. Leybourn, for William 
Gran- | tham, at the Sign of the Black Bear in St. Pauls \ Church- 
yard neer the little North door; and Thomas Basset, in St. Durftans 
Church- I yard in Fleet-&.re.et. 1661. 

Small 8vo, First Edition, bound in full olive calf, paneled gilt back, with gilt 
edges. Good Copy. 

The six pieces comprising this work are separately titled and paged, bearing the 
date of 1660. Evidently the copy described by Hazlitt lacked the general title, while 
Lowndes is led into the error of describing them as six different works. The 
"errata" on last leaf covers the entire publication.

Small 4to, bound in full brown calf, gilt back, blind tooling on sides, red edges. 
Some leaves shaved close at lower margins, affecting the catch-words. 

Excessively Rare. The only other copy that can be traced is the one in the 
Heber Collection (formerly from the Rawlinson, Hearne, and Reed Collec- 
tions), and that was imperfect at the end. Mr. Hazlitt says, that " No perfect 
copy is known," but the one here described answers to that requirement. 
The poem of "^ Mad Merry Ramble " is most curious.
