" I am conducting a survey of the first edition (1862) of Christina Rossetti's Goblin Market.
I have already surveyed copies held by every Library and Institution on worldcat or with an online catalogue finding 104 of the 750 copies published so far, and I am now trying to trace privately held copies.
I have placed a request in The Book Collector magazine but would appreciate any help or ideas about how to track down other copies.
I would like to know if the copies contain any ownership information, (inscription, bookplate, library stamp, etc.) found inside the volume, a brief description of the binding and whether the copy contains adverts. My email address is email@example.com.
Many thanks, Elaine Gilboy"
