This has been a class of curiosity and
interest on the part of all the successive
nationalities which have existed in the world
since the first rise of a spirit of inquiry and
intellectual refinement. Many persons have
accumulated books without reading them ;
and some of our greatest thinkers and
authors never aimed at possessing a library.
The epigram of Hobbes of Malmesbury,
that if he had read as much as some he
should have known as little, is familiar to us
all ; but there were times when the mere
storage of books or their concentration in a
given repository was beneficial, as it tended
to awaken a call for the old or obsolete
literature, and to secure it from destruction.
Till public libraries became more general,
volumes which did not appeal to the current
taste were apt to fall a prey to ignorance or

* Owing to an unfortunate mishap the first portion
of this paper, which has been for some time in type,
and which was announced as to appear in our last
number, was accidentally omitted. In order as far as
possible to rectify the error, the paper is now given
here, as a whole, without division.



indifference ; and had not a few pioneers
directed their researches toward a field out-
side the pale of the ordinary student, and filled
their studies or closets with the neglected pub-
lications of prior centuries, there is no doubt
that the havoc among the now so precious
fruits of our early English and Scotish
presses would have been infinitely greater
even than we have reason to believe it to
have been. The general oblivion which
overtook the printed work of Caxton and
his followers down to the second half of the
eighteenth century is established beyond
doubt by the low prices realizable for
volumes at present estimated far beyond
their weight in sovereigns ; and we see
clearly enough that it was solely through the
unconscious offices of a series of book-
lovers or curiosity-fanciers that articles of
which the market value long remained from
a penny to a shilling, and would now be in
many instances calculable by hundreds, nay,
thousands, of pounds, were not irretrievably
sacrificed. One material point seems to be,
that formerly, before a handful of men in
this country acquired some degree of sym-
pathy with the existing remains of our
ancient literature, and found room for them
on their shelves, there was no conception of
the mnparative scarcity of Old English books,
and items which are regarded by us as price-
less occur in catalogues at the same figures as
others which have descended to us in rela-
tive abundance. It is when we deliberately
contemplate the enormous waste which has
actually taken place that we are apt to grow
more thankful to those who, whatever their
motives were, snatched from the fire, the
pie-dish, and other domestic purposes, the
examples which we hold at this moment of
the literary labours or amusements of our own
forefathers. The dilettante, the virtuoso, the
bookworm, the bibliomaniac, or by whatever
name he may be called, has done his part,
after all ; had it not been for his ardour and
industry, how much would have been lost
for ever to the scholar and the student ! It
is our privilege to-day to have under our eyes
many a record of the past, which has passed
from one affectionate hand to another, until
it has reached ourselves until it is as secure
from loss as anything human can be secure.
The generations of book-collectors, there-
fore, have deserved well of their country and

their species; and it struck the present
writer that this slightly annotated list,
alphabet-wise, of at all events the principal
names in this branch of enterprise might
prove serviceable and interesting.

Here we have a school of men of very
varied culture and attainments, yet with one
uniform aim before them, who have not
merely helped to render possible the collec-
tion of material for a British Bibliography,
but for the study of the progress and deve-
lopment of our literature during a very long
and important period. Now, when a book,
once published, can hardly be lost, it is
difficult to conceive a time when, either
because a volume was very popular or the
reverse, the odds were heavy indeed against
its existence beyond the immediate genera-
tion, even if edition upon edition, and
thousands of copies, had been circulated.

I have ventured to admit into the ensuing
catalogue the names of a few men, such as
Dickens and Thackeray, who were rather
book-recipients than book-collectors.
