The Books forming this Collection have been selected with great
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.
