Catalogue of the Library at Chatsworth
[Compiled by James P. Lacaita]. 27 engraved vignettes of Chatsworth tipped-in. Four vols. Large & thick 8vo, orig. dark green cloth, (a few corners bruised), spines gilt. London: Chiswick Press, 1879. One of 200 sets only on regular paper (of a total edition of 250 copies). This rare catalogue stands as the best record of what is still Britain's finest private library, rich in incunabula, the classics, MSS., English literature, etc. The compiler has provided a history of the house and library which serves as the Preface. Nice set. A.L.s dated 14 July 1889 from Lacaita (1813-95), to Cecil George Savile Foljambe (1846-1907), politician and recipient of this copy (no. 173). Obituaries of Lacaita have been pasted on the front free-end paper of Vol. I. Bookplates of Foljambe, Major J.R. Abbey, and Charles Sebag-Montefiore.
