Abstract

Samuel Parr (1747-1825) was an English schoolmaster and minister who, according to the bookseller H.G. Bohn, had an excellent library. Parr modelled himself on Samuel Johnson, although he did not match the Great Cham’s wit and authority. Parr had a simple book label constructed for his library, which was sold in May 1828. There are ten ‘Parr’ books in Special Collections: nine in Shoults, and one once owned by Willi Fels.
