IMPORTANT!

This is the ROBERT TEMPLE BIBLIOGRAPHICAL ARCHIVE. It contains descriptions and notes relating to almost 18,000 titles in the fields of British and American literature, being the bulk of the stock that has passed through our hands since 1984, with the addition of a few earlier items of especial interest. Books currently in stock are not included, and it is therefore necessary to supplement your search by looking at our Current Catalogues. For the most part full bibliographical descriptions are given, though for some earlier items, catalogued when computing space was more restricted the details given are quite brief. For an account of the conventions adopted, the abbreviations used, and reference sources consulted, please see our information pages.




Please note:
The arrangement here is the same as that adopted in our current catalogues, and as there our larger files are presented in sections for ease of downloading. At the end of each section you are invited to browse the next.

The later extra numbers of ‘All the Year Round' are difficult to find. The slow disappearance of advertising matter (and the repeated change of agents) over the course of the present series fortells the final collapse of ‘All the Year Round' in March 1895. The 1893 Christmas Number, present here, and patently a family effort of support, may well have been the last. The Christmas Number for 1887 is listed under Wolff, 7687a; the Spring and Easter Number for 1890, under Wolff, 7687d; the rest are not in Wolff.

LITERARY PERIODICAL. [Cover title:] THE AVON BOOKLET, No.22, Vol.III. Issued Monthly. Printed and published by J. Thomson, 10, Craven Gardens, Wimbledon, London, S.W., N.D. [January, 1906]. Apocrypha of Tennyson, Browning, Shelley, Poe. One gathering f'cap 8vo (paged 149 - [168]) on hand-made paper, sewn into large grey hand-made paper wrappers printed in black. A couple of leaves foxed, but a very nice copy.

Four poems by Tennyson, one each by Shelley, Browning, and Poe, with in each case an interesting introduction, giving the reasons for thinking it apocryphal, including for some the name of the actual author. This is the last issue of The Avon Booklets, the series continuing thereafter in the form of quarterly volumes. The series was issued by subscription, and it appears from the Editor's remarks on the inside front wrapper that fewer than 500 copies were printed.

LITERARY PERIODICAL. BELGRAVIA, An Illustrated London Magazine. Vol.XXXIII. July to October 1877. Chatto and Windus, Piccadilly, 1877. Demy 8vo; half-title not called for; sixteen wood-engraved plates with tissue guards; pp.iv+508; publisher's deep sky-blue sand-grain cloth, blocked, lettered, and embossed with lettering, blind on back cover, blocked and lettered gilt, lettered deep sky-blue through gilt, on front cover and spine, ruled gilt on spine; end-papers coated yellow. Slight patchy dulling of gilt on spine; otherwise a brilliantly fine copy.

Edited by M.E. Braddon. Includes chapters IX-XXIV of ‘By Proxy' by James Payn, and chapters XIX-XXX of ‘The World Well Lost' by E. Lynn Linton, as well as complete shorter contributions by D. Christie Murray, Richard Dowling (‘The Ghoul'), T. Adolphus Trollope, Dr. Charles Mackay, Mark Twain, Frederick Boyle (‘A Story of the Transvaal'), etc. Bound up without the extra Summer Number and its four additional plates, or the advertised frontispiece (which seems not to relate to any of the contents): but this is evidently correct. A neat presentation inscription on the back of the front end-paper, dated ‘November 1st/81' suggests that this copy was made up from left over sheets by the publishers, and issued as a volume, rather than being bound up from the numbers in a publisher's case by their first purchaser, whilst the condition of the volume precludes any possibility of plates or text having been lost. The plates listed to face pp.26, 150 (an obvious misprint), 291, 400, and 506 are bound in to face pp.1, 130, 257, 385, and 473. A superb, if ugly, example of decorated period cloth.
