Robinson is the author of Ollier's entry in the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, in which he discusses the 'fifty titles' that Ollier and his brother James published between 1817 and 1823, and the others dating from his second stint as publisher between 1846 and 1849. The list is 10pp., 4to. In fair condition, on lightly-aged paper. Subtitle: '(*Indicates that U. of Delaware Library has in original, microform, or photo rpt.)' Robinson has given the date and his details in autograph at the head, and has starred items in 'urgently need' in red ink. In addition to full title, publisher's details and date, many entries contain brief notes regarding printing, publication and dating. For example, Shelley's 1818 'Laon and Cythna' is said to have been published '8 Dec. 1817, according to 1 Dec. 1817 Morn. Chron. ad', and the same poet's 1823 'Poetical Pieces' is said to have been 'Made from remainder sheets of earlier editions; a variant of this edition lacks Hellas'. The list contains 16 Shelley items and two by Keats.
