xvi, 576; x, 664; x, 742 p. Published in 1903/1905/1906. Three volumes (complete). In each volume there is bumping to the corners, Wear to the top and bottom of the spines, and some chipping to the spine. Text is unmarked by underlining or notations. Verso of the title page:"Of this volume two thousand one hundred copies have been printed: the large paper edition in royal quarto. One hundred copies, numbered A.1 to A.100 ... The small paper edition in demy quarto. Two thousand copies, numbered B.1 to B.2,000." This copy is not numbered. A Term Catalogue, German Messkatalog, is a serial publication compiled to inform customers--most importantly book traders from other cities--of the book production as available on the book fairs. The first such catalogue was issued by Georg Willer in Augsburg in 1564. Several projects followed the model including the series of English Term Catalogues issued by John Starkey and Robert Clavell under the title Mercurius Librarius, or, a catalogue of books from 1668 to 1711. "Term" referred to the dates of the fairs that would be held as platforms of the trade.The project of an independent conclusive English catalogue began in 1668 with Starkey's catalogues soon co-edited and then taken over by Robert Clavell. Clavell died on 8 August 1711. His death seems to have terminated the series. The publication had already become unstable in 1708 and 1709. A new catalogue appeared in 1711 under Clavell's mentorship after a gap of more than a year but it remained without a successor.[Wikipedia] This is a very large and heavy 3 volume set.
