A dictionary of quotations from the British poets. In three parts. Part the first. Shakespeare. [Second. Blank verse.] [Third. Rhyme.] By the author of The peerage & baronetage charts
G. & W. B. Whittaker, London, 1824. First edition, 3 vols., 8vo, pp. xix, [1], 276, [24]; 12 (ads for Longman, Rees [et al.] dated Oct., 1826), xv, [1], 431, [1]; 12 (ads, as above), xv, [1], 355, [1]; original paper-covered boards, paper labels on spines; some rubbing and cracking, label on vol. II chipped with a little loss, but the bindings, while fragile, are firm. According to the preface, each of the volumes was separately published, and consequently this may account for the paucity of complete copies. OCLC lists only the copies at Glasgow University and Univ. of Hong Kong; and RLIN notes only the copy at Folger. Jaggard, p. 564, but citing only the first volume. Kingdom is also the author of the well-known America and the British colonies: an abstract of all the most useful information relative to the United States, Canada, the Cape of Good Hope, New South Wales, and Van Diemen's Island (1820); and Suggestions for improving the value of railway property and for the eventual liquidation of the national debt (1850). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
