Hordern House are delighted to offer our new catalogue of the collection of Robert Edwards, a passionate bibliophile and an intrepid collector whose library reflects his discerning taste and broad learning.
This catalogue includes many of the major items from his library, some so rare they are known in only a handful of copies, as well as several interesting manuscripts and pictures. Overall the condition is excellent and it is a pleasure to see so much beautifully preserved nineteenth-century material. He took great pains to acquire books in original cloth and pamphlets in publisher's wrappers. Furthermore, he spared no expense in binding and restoring his beloved treasures and this work was done at the highest level, often by English binders including Sangorski and Sutcliffe, Bayntun and Aquarius.
