Baker’s library is reconstructed from two auction catalogues of Collins’ books which were sold after his death. Baker attributes these low prices to an agreement amongst established dealers and booksellers to allow the prices to be kept down, a classic ‘ring’ (10).

Bibliography, as a discipline, is traditionally the academic study of books as physical, cultural objects; in this sense, it is also known as bibliology (from Ancient Greek: -λογῐ́ᾱ, romanized: -logíā). Carter and Barker (2010) describe bibliography. Carter and Barker (2010) describe bibliography as a twofold scholarly discipline-the organized listing of books (enumerative bibliography) and the systematic description of books as objects (descriptive bibliography).

Wilkie Collins (William Wilkie Collins), 1824–89, English novelist. Collins's heroines and his female villains are drawn with considerable clarity and sympathy and are usually the strongest characters in his novels

Wilkie Collins (William Wilkie Collins), 1824–89, English novelist. Although trained as a lawyer, he spent most of his life writing. He produced some 30 novels, the best known of which are two mystery stories, The Woman in White (1860) and The Moonstone (1868). Collins's heroines and his female villains are drawn with considerable clarity and sympathy and are usually the strongest characters in his novels. He was a close friend of Dickens, in whose periodical Household Words many of Collins's novels first appeared. Collins also wrote short stories, travel books, essays, and plays.

Wilkie Collins (1824-1889) is a major British Victorian novelist, dramatist, short story writer, and journalist. He is best known today as the author of ^IThe Moonstone,^R which T.S. Eliot called the first and greatest English detective novel. He has been the subject of two recent biographies, and a revival of interest in his works is now under way. In particular, there is growing concern with his intellectual development, as witnessed by the 1999 publication of his collected letters. This reconstruction of his library offers a thorough analysis of the books he owned and his response to them and thus illuminates Collins as a reader and writer.

The book begins with a narrative discussion of the contents of Collins's library and its auction. This introductory essay sheds light on the types of books he owned, his use of those texts in his writings, and the dispersion of his collection in 1890. The bulk of the volume provides annotated entries for each item from his library. Entries include publication and bibliographic information, descriptions from sale catalogs, information about the author of the item, citations of the book or author from Collins's letters, and information on the present location or subsequent history of the item. An appendix catalogs paintings and artwork in Collins's possession at the time of his death.
