No. 210. A SELECTION OF VALUABLE BOOKS, Part I., A to H.
No. 214. PRESENTATION COPIES and Books from the Libraries of Andrew Lang, Leigh Hunt, and other famous persons.
Nos. I., II., III., IV. AUTOGRAPH LETTERS, MANUSCRIPTS, and HISTORICAL DOCUMENTS.
Privately Printed Books.
HAVE a collection of no less than Fourteen Hundred Books
I printed for private circulation, which I now offer for sale, en
bloc. About nine hundred of these books are fully described in my Catalogue of Books printed for Private Circulation, with annotations upon them, and many extracts. To a prospective purchaser I will gladly send a copy of my Catalogue, indicating about nine hundred of the books which are now offered in this lot. The remaining five hundred books have not been catalogued by me, and are for the most part unknown to bibliographers, as they are not described in any books of reference.
Although printed for private circulation only, and in very limited numbers, these books are by no means devoid of interest. The collection would be of great value to the Genealogist Family Historian, and Topographer.
I offer the lot for the very moderate sum of
Two Hundred and Twenty Pounds.
