Granger's Biographical History of England



Richard Bull's extra-illustrated copy of James Granger's  "Biographical
History of England" is in the Huntington Library. According to an article
in the Huntington Calendar (Nov 1987) describing major conservation work on
the multi-volume set, Richard Bull was "a veritable virtuoso of
'grangerizing,' the eighteenth and early nineteenth-century hobby of
expanding published books with additional leaves or original graphic
materials related to the texts. . . . His extra-illustrated Granger is a
masterpiece of its type. . ."
