Catalogue of the library in Red Cross Street, Cripplegate; founded pursuant to the will of the Reverend Daniel Williams, D. D. who died in the year 1716
Printed and Sold by Richard and John E. Taylor, London 1841 - In two volumes. viii, 420; [2], 438pp. Recent green cloth, lettered in gilt. Extremities a trifle marked. Internally clean and crisp but for light marginal damp-staining and browning to first three gatherings of Vol. II. An inventory of the printed material housed within the theological research library founded in 1729 with proceeds originating from the estate of Presbyterian minister, Daniel Williams (c.1643-1716), a supplement (not present here) was issued in 1870. The collections, which aside from theological holdings include works of philosophy, history, and literature, were greatly enlarged over the years with a plethora of significant donations; Williams's original benefaction of approximately 7600 books now forms only a small part of the modern library. After several moves, the trustees acquired University Hall in Gordon Square, London, where the library opened in 1890 and remains today. The catalogue includes mention of the library's copy of Shakespeare's First Folio, sold at Sotheby's in 2006 for £2.8 million. Size: 8vo [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
