11 Lobeira, Vasco [translated by Robert Southey]. [SOUTHEY'S & A.E. HOUSMAN'S COPY - WITH CORRECTIONS IN SOUTHEY'S HAND & MARKS IN HOUSMAN'S HAND]. Amadis of Gaul.
London: For T.N. Longman and O. Rees, Pater-Noster-Row, 1803. 
Duodecimo. Four volumes. I: [vi], xxxvi, 288, [viii]pp.; II: [iv], 371, [i], [viii]pp.; III: [iv], 336, [viii]pp.; IV: [iv], 336, [xii]pp. First edition. Without the half-titles. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards. From A.E. Housman's library. With manuscript notes by Southey and Housman. According to the previous owner's notes, purchased from Blackwell's on October 17, 1936. Southey was the translator of this work. Translated from the Spanish version of Garciordonez de Montalvo. Southey's Notes: Volume I: none found; Volume II: p. 1, p. 115, p. 211, p. 229, p. 230, p. 291, p. 339, p. 340; Volume III: p. 17, p. 79; Volume IV: p. 313 (?). There are also notes by Housman. I contacted Blackwell's; they informed me that their archives were deposited at Merton College. To date, I have not heard from Merton College with any additional information. John Sparrow was apparently involved in the transaction that saw the purchase of Housman's books by Blackwell's. The previous owner of the set (this set has been in my collection for well over twenty years) had purchased these books from Blackwell's on October 17, 1936. It has some manuscript notes by Southey (in his very distinctive small hand in red ink) as well as other marks or notes in pencil, which I presume (correctly, I think) are by Housman (William White's article in PMLA, 1943, 'A Note on some Housman marginalia,' indicates how Housman marked his books, and the Amadis is no exception). The set has the small B.H. Blackwell Ltd. Booksellers ticket on the front pastedown of volume one and was marked 25/-; it was crossed over and a new price 21/- added. I do not know if this set was owned by Southey at one time (I did not see it in his sale catalogue) and whether Housman had any notes regarding previous ownership that Blackwell's entered into their files.
