HUTH (Henry). Catalogue of the Famous library of Printed Books, Illuminated Manuscripts, Autograph Letters and Engravings Collected by Henry Huth.... which will be Sold by Auction by Sotheby, Wilkinson & Hodge.1911

London: Dryden Press, 9 Vols., 4to (255 X 185 mm), limited issue, printed on fine paper, with extra coloured plates and prices and buyers' names, numerous plates many of which are folding including a number of chromolithograph plates, bound in uniform red quarter morocco, t.e.g. A very nice set. The auction catalogue of the celebrated library formed by Henry Huth and his son. This set is without the final 10th portion which consisted of the books returned as imperfect and the unsold books. It is therefore complete for the books and manuscripts, but is without the catalogues of autograph letters and engravings. All these 9 volumes are the limited numbered issue on fine paper with additional colour plates and the price lists. '...the dispersal, by Messrs. Sotheby, of the Huth collections (1911-1920) was one of the most striking events in the history of the English salerooms'.—De Ricci. Provenance: From the library W. A. Foyle of Beeleigh Abbey with his red morocco gilt bookplate on the front pastedown of each volume. De Ricci pp. 149-153.
