The Ashley Library [With ALS from Wise to Owner]
London: Printed for Private Circulation, 1922-36. 11 volumes. Quartos. Original publisher's smooth beige buckram cloth, gilt lettering on spine. [Sir] Robert Arundell Hudson's copy [noted British political activist, 1864-1927] with his bookplates, and autograph letter signed from Thomas J. Wise to Hudson dated 2.4.26 laid in. A superb copy, near fine, with only minimal sunning to spines. Engraved plates and facsimilies throughout. Rarely seen in this condition, the eleven volume set of the Ashely LIbrary is based on the unrivaled rare book collection amassed by Wise, one of the greatest scholarly 'book thieves,' ingenious typographical forger, and collector of fine and rare books of our time. Still a useful reference work, the Ashley Library (the collection now resides in the British Museum) especially excels in its descriptions of English nineteenth century literature.
