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.The first item is Andrew Langa#39;s aquot;Pen and Ink, aquot; a poem of 32 lines; the 44 page essay, aquot;Two Latter-Day Lyrists, aquot; is on ... and the Herodotus book: aquot;The frontispiece, however, was not intended by the Artist or myself to have any allegorical sense.
