It deals particularly with material bearing upon the history of the relevant literature, proviaed with detailed collations; with causes for the rarity of, and demand for, related and requested editions; notes on the development of prices, marketing situations, etc. It must be pointed out that prices indicated in the 'Rara' have today, of course, only historical interest. An essay: 'The Historico-Bibliophilie' contains supplements to the 'Rara,' thus forming its thematical completion. Even today, about 40 years after its publication they are "Rara' is indispensable for antiquarian booksellers, librarians, documentalists and bibliophiles in the sphere of scientific works. Bibliography and annotations of the 'Rara' are of exemplary thoroughness and still remain unrivaled among other similar publications. In contemporary reviews the 'Rara' have met with widespread general appreciation." Good. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE-39835
