A New English Dictionary on Historical Principles Founded Mainly on the Materials Collected by the Philological Society. Ed. Sir James A. H. Murray, Henry Bradley, et al. 10 vols. in 12. Oxford: at the Clarendon Press, 1888-1926.
Bookplate in each vol. (inserted by Sotheran); TH’s pencilled lists of ‘Words Omitted’ on rear free-endpaper of each vol.: for details see pamphlet, Thomas Hardy’s Oxford English Dictionary, BL export records, X.950/29564.

As constituting lot 288 in the MG Sale (where it was purchased by J. G. Wilson, chairman of J. & E. Bumpus, the booksellers) the Dictionary appears to have been complete, as described above. Wilson added the supplemental vol. XI (1933), but when the set was auctioned by Sotheby’s (Hodgson’s Rooms), 14 Dec. 1978 (lot 23, illustrated), it lacked vol. X, part ii. Purchased then by Henry Sotheran Ltd, it reappeared (now with bookplates in each vol.) as no. 278 in their cat. 967 of 1979. The set’s next owner, David Holmes, added a copy of vol. X, part 2, in 1989, its lack of provenance being duly registered when the set was again auctioned by Sotheby’s (New York) 14 June 1993.
