4 Horne, Thomas Hartwell. Introduction to the Study of Bibliography. [Two Volumes, Signed by Publisher]
Dobbs Ferry, NY Glanville Publishers 1981 Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Two volumes, 738 pages, cloth, very good. One thousand copies signed by publisher Philip F. Cohen, this is number 35. "With the exception of the new title page and publisher's foreword, this is a complete photographic reprint of a work first published in London by G. Woodfall in 1814. The trim size of the original hardcover two-volume edition was 5.25 by 8.5 inches." From Wikipedia: "Thomas Hartwell Horne (1780 1862) was an English theologian and librarian. He was born in London and educated at Christ's Hospital until he was 15 when his father died and he had to work. He then became a clerk to a barrister, and used his spare time to write. Horne was initially affiliated with the Wesleyans but later joined the Church of England. He was admitted to holy orders without the usual preliminaries, because of his published work. In 1833 he obtained a benefice in London and a prebend in St Paul's Cathedral. Horne was a librarian in 1814 at the Surrey Institution, which was dissolved in 1823. In 1824 he joined the staff at the British Museum and was senior assistant in the printed books department there until 1860. Horne wrote more than forty works in bibliography, Bible commentaries, and Christian apologetics. One of his best known works is the three-volume Introduction to the Critical Study and Knowledge of the Holy Scriptures that was published in 1818. This work enjoyed widespread circulation in Britain and North America and went through at least eleven editions during the nineteenth century. It was reissued in North America in 1970. Horne also produced a "Tree Full of Bible Lore," a tree-shaped text of statistics on the Bible, in which he counted the number of books, chapters, verses, words, and even letters. He ended this tree with "It [the Bible] contains knowledge, wisdom, holiness and love." He wrote an Introduction to the Study of Bibliography (1814) , and various other works. Over a period of four years he catalogued the Harleian manuscripts then held at the British Museum."

He was the son of Jehial Edward and Caroline (Johnson) Matteson. He died in Cambridge, Massachusetts on October 13, 1949. He graduated from the University of California in 1892. He continued his education at Harvard University Graduate School, majoring in American History. During his 2nd year there, he lost his hearing due to an accident. In spite of his handicap he became eminent in the fields of mapmaking, indexing, and historian. His name on a map guaranteed its accuracy. As an indexer he produced such important works as the Minutes of the City Council of New York. And as a historian he was chosen to research the data for the Sesquicentennial of the birth of George Washington, and was named Historian for the Sesquicentennial of the Constitution of the United States. Among the works compiled by him in Washington was the publication of the Diaries of George Washington. " ; Ex-Library; 203 pages

6 McCrimmon, Barbara Power, Politics, and Print: the Publication of the British Museum Catalogue, 1881-1900
Hamden, CT Linnet Books 1981 0208018743 / 9780208018748 Hardcover Very Good- in Good dust jacket 
186 pages, cloth, publisher's file copy otherwise very good. From the DJ: The path to publication was not a smooth one, despite the new advances in printing brought about by the Industrial Revolution. Personality and practical problems kept pace with the flow of new books into the library. The tale that Barbara McCrimmon unfolds from the archives of the British Museum and Library is one of frustration and contention, of small but steady victories over inertia and tradition, of a final triumph that came too late for celebration by the original proponents of publication. Delineating here for the first time the careers of the librarians most responsible for the project: Edward Augustus Bond and Richard Garnett, McCrimmon also recounts their struggles with government over money, complaints of library employees about poor working conditions, and experiments in publication. ; 186 pages
