An Enquiry into the Nature of Certain 19th Century Pamphlets. [Second Edition, with an epilogue], Carter, John, and Graham Pollard. Edited by Nicholas Barker and John Collins
3 Carter, John, and Graham Pollard. Edited by Nicholas Barker and John Collins An Enquiry into the Nature of Certain 19th Century Pamphlets. [Second Edition, with an epilogue]
London and Berkeley Scolar Press 1983 0859676374 / 9780859676373 Second Edition Hard Cover Near Fine No Jacket Octavo 
400 pp plus epilogue. This is the 1983 reprint of the 1934 first edition by Carter and Pollard. The 1983 publication included two volumes, the second volume being "A Sequel to an Enquiry..." This is the first volume only. (Just to further confuse matters, this volume comes with a dustjacket, but I'm listing as "no dust jacket" because the dust jacket is actually for the other volume, "A Sequel...") Probably best if you email us (or use the "ask bookseller" button below this listing if you're browsing abebooks) if you're at all interested in this book, and we can sort out whether this is the one you're looking for. Yes. "The book forgery of Thomas James Wise, disclosed in 1934 in John Carter and Graham Pollard's "An Enquiry into the Nature of Certain Nineteenth Century Pamphlets", is perhaps the most notorious literary scandal of this century."

The Boston Edition of the Baskett Bible, Nichols, Charles L.
7 Nichols, Charles L. The Boston Edition of the Baskett Bible
Worcester, Mass. The American Antiquarian Society 1927 First Thus Paperback - Stapled Good Octavo Inscribed by Author
21 pp. Wear to stapled paper covers, including bumps and a torn lower corner. Inked notes on front cover. Staples are just a little rusty. Page corners a little curled, page edges browned. One instance of inked marginalia, a few pencilled passages. Reprinted from the Proceedings of the American Antiquarian Society for April, 1972. Just to be clear, this is not a bible. It is an account by Nichols of his search for the titular bible, which, if it actually existed, would be the earliest bible printed in America. Inscribed by the author on the title page, and accompanied by a two-page ALS, from Nichols to, apparently, a British bookseller, requesting that the bookseller find him a 1752 edition of the Baskett from England to compare with Nichols's 1749 edition. "I am willing to go as high as $25 or $30 for it."
