This catalogue was printed for Mr. Hoe before his death and in it are given the most minute descriptions, collations and variations of all the great and small productions of the English authors who lived before 1700. Subsequent catalogues did not contain any collations, hence are of very little consequence. The present volumes comprise one of the most useful and valuable bibliographies on the subject.

Parisiis, apud S. Colinoum 1539
A beautiful book, bound in the Boyer style, but, judging from the admixture of pointillé work, by the hand of Du Seuil about 1710. The full lining or doublure is a feature of great rarity in books bound at that time, being only found on volumes which were esteemed to be of the highest value and worthy of the decorator's best effort.
