(WILDE, Oscar). FINZI, John Charles (compiler). Oscar Wilde and His Literary Circle : A Catalog of Manuscripts and Letters in the William Andrews Clark Memorial Library. Berkeley & Los Angeles : "Published for the Library by the University of California Press", 1957. First Edition. Pp [i]-[xviii],,[1-242],xix-xxxiv. 8vo, wine cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Foreword by Lawrence Clark Powell. "This volume is a detailed, comple hensive catalog of the Wilde Manuscript Collection at the William Andrews Clark Memorial Library in Los Angeles. No other collectrion of Wilde manuscripts and Wildeiana, either private or institutional, rivals the Clark's in quantity or quality.It comprises some three thoudand items, of which approximately four hundre d are by Wilde. Included are manuscripts of poems, plays, and essays, many of them unpublished, and numerous letters by Wilde, members of his family, friends, and literary acquaintances. Of special interest in the collection are the intimate letters Wilde wrote to his friends Robert Ross and More Adey, from the time of his mnprisonment to the day of his death. There are also many letters and documents dealing with Wilde's imprisonment, attemps tohave him legally removed from prison on medical grounds, the legal aspects of his separation from Constance Wilde, his position concerning his childr en, and the complicated procedure for a financial settlement on his leavingprison. In cataloging the collection Mr. Finzi has undertaken much careful investigation to identify correspondents, establish the sequence of events , and date the letters and other materials - no easy task, as may be seen from the fact that, for example, Lady Wilde wrote an illegible hand, never dated her letters, and often used no form of address at all. The listing of items in the collection is alphabetical by author, with the letters arranged by addressee; subgroupings are chronological. To provide guidance to the content of individual items, four indexes have been included. They list: topics and persons referred to in the correspondence; persn to whom letters were written; persons whose letters to Wilde are in the collection; and authors and titles of all manuscript works and fragments of works. This volume will thus be a useful guide to the Clark Library's wealth of source material bearing on Wilde and the literary world of the late nineteenth century." (from the dj). Spine and margins faded, boards scuffed, bookplate, a few smudges, lacking the frontispiece and the two leaves of plates, else good in edgeworn dustjacket.

Richard Broke Freeman (April 1, 1915 – September 1, 1986) was a zoologist, historian of zoology, bibliographer of natural history and book collector. Freeman called The Works of Charles Darwin: An Annotated Bibliographical Handlist his first attempt to list “all the editions and issues [of works by Charles Darwin] which I have seen,or seen reliably recorded” no more than “a list” which is “far from comple te.” That 1965 work contained some 541 items; 12 years later, a second edition numbered 1,805 entries, though it maintained the same title.[Citing another scholar’s assertion that “it would be as hopeless a task to search outall the reprints [of Darwin’s Origin of Species] as it would be to discove r those of its great – and almost as shattering – coeval, The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám”, Freeman wrote: “I have tried to do just that for all of Darwin’s works.” The second revised edition of The Works of Charles Darwin was “virtually a new book”[ and “a required purchase for students of Darwin and of the history of evolutionary biology generally” which “stands second onlyto a facsimile of the first edition of The Origin of Species..” Slight wea r to cloth else very good. 60.00
