Notes Towards a Bibliography of the Books That Used to be in the Private Case of the British (Museum) Library

Berkeley: Ian Jackson, 2016. First Edition Thus. Wrappers with green card covers with French flaps. Octavo. Limited to 250 copies. 148 pp. A near fine copy.

This volume supplements Patrick Kearney’s earlier work from 1981. The introduction is followed by a list of nearly 2000 items thought to have once been in this curious, off-limits case in the British Museum Library. The case was for books that were considered too obscene to be among the general shelves. With 2000 items, It must have been a large case.
