Former Owners

 

 

  • Trace known and legible former owners and make notes in 852 field - information comes from the official file, case numbers penciled into copy, book plates, and autographs 
  • Books with the Warwick Castle Shakespeare Collection were also owned by Halliwell-Phillipps; always note and trace the latter when Warwick Castle is involved. 

7001 Halliwell-Phillipps, J. O.  ǂq  (James Orchard), ǂd 1820-1889, ǂe former owner. ǂ5 DFo

7102 Warwick Castle (Warwick, England). ǂb Shakespeare Library, ǂe former owner. ǂ5 DFo

ǂz Bookplate: Shakespeare Library, Warwick Castle. Half leather binding with marbled paper boards and endpapers. Halliwell-Phillipps copy.

  • Trace binders when stamped or known
  • Richardot: this binder's work is recognizable, although not all of the bindings are signed
    • If the binding is signed, transcribe the stamp and trace
    • Unsigned; spotted marbling; floral tooling and landscape title on spine; 1/4 cloth proportion="Bound by Richardot" and trace
    • Unsigned and three out of the above four characteristics="Probably bound by Richardot" and trace
    • While many books bound by Richardot are from the library of Edward Dowden, do not trace Dowden when the copy is unstamped
  • Duplicates: trace former ownership when duplicate copies are indicated
    • Example: "H.E.H. dup." signifies that copy came from Huntington sale. Either quote or interpret the handwritten note:

7102 Henry E. Huntington Library and Art Gallery, ǂe former owner. ǂ5 DFo

852 ǂz Huntington Library duplicate

OR

7102 Henry E. Huntington Library and Art Gallery, ǂe former owner. ǂ5 DFo

852 ǂz "H.E.H. dup."
