John Ferriar
The princeps copy, clad in blue and gold.
Ferriar quotes
How pure the joy, when first my hands unfold
The small, rare volume, black with tarnished gold!
Torn from their destined page (unworthy meed
Of knightly counsel and heroic deed).

Ferriar John quotes
Now cheaply bought for thrice their weight in gold.
