Cust, Lionel.
Catalogue of the Collection of Fans and Fan-Leaves presented to the trustees of the British Museum by the Lady Charlotte Schrieber.

London Longmans & Co.: 1893.

The noted collector, Lady Charlotte Schrieber, had presented her collection of antique fans to the British Museum in 1891, and had catalogued the collection in two massive, illustrated folio volumes which, even at the time, were quite expensive (and are today quite scarce and several magnitude above "quite expensive" in price). This volume is an un-illustrated summary of that information, with more concise entries. Uncommon.

Hardcover. 6.5"x10", viii + 138 pages. Publisher's black, ruled cloth with gilt spine title. Ex-library with small spine number, 19th century bookplate on the front pastedown, small stamp on the title page. Covers lightly rubbed, else a clean, tight copy.
