and educated at Cheltenham College and Wadham College, Oxford, where he received his B. A. in 1887. He showed an aptitude
for bibliographical work before he was twenty, and while at Oxford developed a plan for describing sixteenth-century books,
started to collect early English books, and entered into correspondence with Henry Bradshaw, J. E. Bailey, and William Blades.
In 1887 he was at work on a pamphlet on early stamped bindings.
