The Countryman. "You know how much, for some time past, the editions of the Elzevirs have been in demand. The fancy for them has even penetrated into the country. I am acquainted with a man there who denies himself necessaries, for the sake of collecting into a library (where other books are scarce enough) as many little Elzevirs as he can lay his hands upon. He is dying of hunger, and his consolation is to be able to say, 'I have all the poets whom the Elzevirs printed. I have ten examples of each of them, all with red letters, and all of the right date.' This, no doubt, is a craze, for, good as the books are, if he kept them to read them, one example of each would be enough." The Parisian. "If he had wanted to read them, I would not have advised him to buy Elzevirs. The editions of minor authors which these booksellers published, even editions 'of the right date,' as you say, are not too correct. Nothing is good in the books but the type and the paper. Your friend would have done better to use the editions of Gryphius or Estienne." This fragment of a literary dialogue I translate from 'Entretiens sur les Contes de Fees,' a book which contains more of old talk about books and booksellers than about fairies and folk-lore. The 'Entretiens' were published in 1699, about sixteen years after the Elzevirs ceased to be publishers. The fragment is valuable: first, because it shows us how early the taste for collecting Elzevirs was fully developed, and, secondly, because it contains very sound criticism of the mania. Already, in the seventeenth century, lovers of the tiny Elzevirian books waxed pathetic over dates, already they knew that a 'Caesar' of 1635 was the right 'Caesar,' already they were fond of the red-lettered passages, as in the first edition of the 'Virgil' of 1636. As early as 1699, too, the Parisian critic knew that the editions were not very correct, and that the paper, type, ornaments, and FORMAT were their main attractions. To these we must now add the rarity of really good Elzevirs.

The essays in this volume have, for the most part, already appeared in an American edition (Combes, New York, 1886). The Essays on 'Old French Title-Pages' and 'Lady Book-Lovers' take the place of 'Book Binding' and 'Bookmen at Rome;' 'Elzevirs' and 'Some Japanese Bogie-Books' are reprinted, with permission of Messrs. Cassell, from the Magazine of Art; 'Curiosities of Parish Registers' from the Guardian; 'Literary Forgeries' from the Contemporary Review; 'Lady Book-Lovers' from the Fortnightly Review; 'A Bookman's Purgatory' and two of the pieces of verse from Longman's Magazine-with the courteous permission of the various editors. All the chapters have been revised, and I have to thank Mr. H. Tedder for his kind care in reading the proof sheets, and Mr. Charles Elton, M.P., for a similar service to the Essay on 'Parish Registers.'

Excerpt from Book-Verse: An Anthology of Poems of Books and Bookmen From the Earliest Times to Recent Years Was first written or printed. A few miscellaneous pieces are included together at the end of the volume. 50 many various readings exist of several of the poems quoted herein, that sometimes it has been no easy matter to decide which to select. Where, as in the case of Chaucer, the quaint old spelling adds a piquancy or expression to the lines, the text has not been interfered with; in a few cases, however, the orthography has been slightly modernised.

Excerpt from Book-Song: An Anthology of Poems of Books and Bookmen From Modern Authors To Richard Le Gallienne. Five years ago a promise lightly made Is claimed herein as with a doubting pen I dedicate this sheaf of verse which then You bade nu gather. But, half afraid, Dallied, and loitered, and long while delayed; Now Time has brought new idols to our ken, Anthologies no longer charm as when A lustrum since this garnering you bade. The English rose of song is not less sweet; The petals borne from England oversea Delight us still; but pulses slower beat To books than Life; that volume which to me, Though torn and dog-eared, sadly incomplete, Holds one bright chapter headed "Memory."
