A Bookman's Catalogue Vol. 1 A-L

The Norman Colbeck Collection of Nineteenth-Century and Edwardian Poetry and Belles Lettres

Edited by T. Bose and Paul Tiessen
UBC Press
The Colbeck collection was formed over half a century ago by the
Bournemouth bookseller Norman Colbeck. Focusing primarily on British
essayists and poets of the nineteenth century from the Romantic
Movement through the Edwardian era, the collection features nearly 500
authors and lists over 13,000 works. Entries are alphabetically
arranged by author with copious notes on the condition and binding of
each copy. Nine appendices provide listings of selected periodicals,
series publications, anthologies, yearbooks, and topical works.
RELATED TOPICS: Fiction, Literature
Essential reading for anyone interested in the highways and biways of literature in the period between 1870 and 1920. Robin Alston, The Library
Libraries with strong collections in this field will find this an interesting complement to the literary biographies and checklists of more major authors and book catalogues. Elizabeth Patterson, ARBA
The catalogue as it stands serves as an impressive permanent record of the Colbeck Collection ... The collaborative efforts of a very knowledgeable bookseller, cataloguers, editors, and the University of British Columbia staff have combined to make available a permanent record of a valuable research collection. Karen Smith, Epilogue
