In 1871, Mr. Huth engaged W.C. Hazlitt and F.S. Ellis to catalog his collection, the former cataloging English works, and the latter foreign. The catalog was completed and sent to press in 1876. Every sheet as printed was revised by Mr. Huth. By Dec. 1878, when he died, he had revised only up to sheet 5U, about half the work. After Mr. Huth's death, Mr. Ellis, who had edited the work from the time it was sent to press, carried it on alone. cf Pref. (signed: Alfred H. Huth).
"The ... varied collection was especially rich in voyages, Shakespearean and early English literature and in early Spanish and German works. The Bibles ... included nearly every edition especially prized by collectors, and the manuscripts and prints were among the most beautiful of their kind."--Dict. nat. biog.
