After such an account, what bibliomaniac can enjoy perfect tranquillity of mind unless he possess a Grollier copy of some work or other?

Nothing could be more congenial than every circumstance and object which presented itself. 270

While I take my departure for Mr. But whatever be its origin, certain is that books printed in the black-letterare now coveted with an eagerness unknown to our collectors in the last century.

We turn back upon the world; and the stunning noises of Virgil’s Cyclops put all this fair Elysium to flight. Isti per multos libros vagant legentes assidue: You are as arrant a book-madman as any of those renowned bibliomaniacs whom you celebrated yesterday evening!

I proceed to give evidence of the present passion which prevails, respecting books of the description of which we are now speaking, by extracting a few articles from the library of which such honourable mention was made at p.

And yet it is, perhaps, difficult to discover why a favourite book should not be as proper an object of elegant ornament as the head of a cane, the hilt of a sword, or the latchet of a shoe.
