New York and London: New York University Press; Oxford University Press, 1953. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. A Very Good or better copy of the first edition, first printing, of this Bibliography of Oliver Wendell Holmes by Thomas Franklin Currier, Edited by Eleanor M. Tilton, for the Bibliographical Society of America; in the Publisher's original rose cloth (light sunning to the spine panel and light shelf wear to the board bottoms, tiny marginal hole to one leaf -- lacking the dust jacket), having a REMARKABLE PROVENANCE, being a presentation copy from the its editor, Eleanor M. Tilton and bearing a presentation from her to Jacob Blanck on the front free endpaper reading as follows: "For Jacob Blanck // with many thanks // Eleanor M. Tilton". The Addenda to the Bibliography [itself titled "Literary Bantlings:" Addenda to the Holmes Bibliography [issued in 1957 - approximately four years after the Bibliography's first publication] also is inscribed by Tilton (to Blank without naming him) as follows: "For the professional // from the amateur // bibliographer // Eleanor M. Tilton". Loosely laid in are two manuscript letters signed from Tilton to Blanck, the first in its original envelope postmarked July 6, 1953 and addressed to Blanck at Harvard's Widener Library, advising Blanck that she had sent the Bibliography to Blanck at "Boston-Cambridge" along with Holmes papers and correspondence that Blank had provided to her and asking that Blanck, if he writes a notice of the Bibliography anywhere, to please call attention to an error on page 326, noting that finding the error "gives me chills", and that two other errors that she found were merely typographical and did not create "confusion". The second letter, handwritten by Tilton to Blanck is on Barnyard College / Columbia University stationary and is dated July 25, 1957, conveying the Addenda to Blanck. In the letter, Tilton makes reference to Note 10 on page 5 of the Addenda. Blanck has underlined both a portion of the statement in Tilton's letter and a portion of such Note 10 in red ink. He also has written (in red ink) a pair of notes to the conveying letter's verso. This remarkable set of materials would make, in our opinion, a COLLECTION-DISTINGUISHING ADDITION TO ANY COLLECTION OF LITERATURE AND ESPECIALLY TO ANY COLLECTION OF OLIVER WENDELL HOLMES MATERIALS. Near fine. Item #938
