The Books forming this Collection have been selected with great care as to their condition, and comprise some of the choicest specimens of binding by Bedford, Riviere, Hayday, Matthews, Pawson and Nicholson, and other eminent Binders.

No Books have been admitted from my stock, or from any other source, and with the exception of a few volumes, none have ever been offered by me at private sale.

All are warranted perfect, unless otherwise described, and are offered without any reservation whatever.

The quotations of prices affixed to a large portion of the books, have been taken from priced Catalogues of the most prominent sales that have occurred in this city, and elsewhere, within the past ten years, and apply to copies similar in condition, unless otherwise stated.

The comparison of the fluctuations in the prices of many of the volumes, together with the uniformity of those realized by others, will it is hoped, be of interest to the Collector.


New York, December 28th, 1868.

11 ANDRE. A representation of Major John Andre, Adjutant General to the King's Forces in North America, going from the Vulture Sloop of War to the Shore of Haverstraw Bay in the Hudson's River the night of the 23d of September, 1780, in a Boat which was sent for him (accompanied by a Mr. Smith,) under the Sanction of a Flag of Truce by Major General Arnold, who then commanded the Rebel Forces in that District. Neatly mounted. Small folio, and bound in full crimson "J. A. fec., 1st Oct., 1780."



The above is an exact copy of a drawing, sketched with a pen by
Major Andre on the morning he was to have been executed, with
a desire (it is supposed) of perpetuating a transaction which ter-
minated fatally for him. The drawing was found upon his table,
with other papers, the next day (being that of his decease,) by his
servant, and delivered by him, on his arrival in New York, to
Lieut. Colonel Crosbie, of the 22d Regiment, who caused this on-
graving to be taken, as a mark of his friendship for that unfortu-
nate officer.

There is also inserted, a rare and beautiful Portrait of Major Andre,
engraved by D. Berger, 1783.
