……PREFA CE.
I WISH to state that I am only responsible for the Introduction to this
volume a volume which has grown far beyond its original limits,
though I believe it to be in its present form a vast improvement on the
plan which was first proposed. I should like also to acknowledge the
asistance I have received from Mrs, Edwin Edwards and Mr. Henry Keene.
Mr. Chesson desires to acknowledge particularly the kindness of Mrs.
Edwards, Mr. J. P. Hescltine, and Mr. Henry Keene in according him
the privilege of examining their collections of Keene's drawings and etchings.
For assistance, given or intended, thanks are also due from him to Messrs.
Bradbury, Agnew, & Co., Mesrs. Chatto and Windus, Mr. H. M. Cundall,
Mr. Joseph W. Darton, Mr. Joseph Day, Mr. W. Dent (The Book-Finder),
Mr. Edmund Evans, Mr. W. Faux, Mr. Birket Foster, Mesrs. Foulshamn
& Co., Mr. J. Garmeson, Sir Alfred Baring Garrod, and his son, Dr. Archibald
Garrod, Mr. H. Garside, Mr. Horace Harral, Mr. A. J. Hipkins, F.S.A.,
and his son, Mr. John Hipkins, Mis Nora Hopper, Mr. Mason Jackson,
Mr. W. MacKenzie (Editor of Black and W'hise), Mr. H. S. Marks, R.A.,
Mr. Edward Marston, Mr. David Mathewson, Mr. G. H. May, Mr. J. H.
Murray, Mr. Claude Phillips, Messrs. Routledge & Sons, Mr. Henry Silver,
Mr. R. F. Sketchley, Mesrs. Smith, Elder & Co, Mr. M. H. Spielmann,
Mr. Edward F. Strange, Mr. Gleeson White, and the Editor of "Zadkiel's
Almanac." Separate and grateful acknowledgment must be made to
Mr. George Somes Layard for his courtesy in reading Mr. Cheson's proof
with a view to contributing to its accuracy and fulness, a courtesy which
is the more remarkable, since it is understood to be that gentleman's
intention to publish at some future time another bibliography of the works
of Charles Keene.
