The Eads Collection of H.E. Bates.
Various publishers - 1995 1926 - around 300 items including variants and periodicals, various formats, original bindings, conditions ranging from fine to sound, with many dustjackets a bit worn or chipped, overall good. Peter Eads published 'H.E. Bates, a Bibliographical Study' in 1990. It has been called 'meticulously prepared' and 'invaluable', and was reprinted in 2007 by Oak Knoll Press. Eads enlivens his bibliography with citations from contemporary reviews and Bates' autobiography, and used some of the same material to prepare a biography of Bates published in 1995. The foundation of his bibliographical and biographical studies was his own collection, including a considerable run of 'A' items - both English and American editions, plus paperbacks - and a wide selection of 'B' and 'C' items, anthologies and periodicals with contributions from Bates. Close to 60 of the books are signed by Bates - including a number of limited and special editions - with close to half of these inscribed, including presentation copies to Edward Garnett, Michael Joseph, and their respective families. A more recent online effort (Paul Machlis's 'H.E. Bates Companion') has been able to add to the record only 8 fiction stories not traced by Eads (as well as a larger quantity of periodical nonfiction and book reviews), and the excellence of his bibliography is suitably represented by this well formed collection. A full listing of the collection is available on request.
