We would call the attention of Librarians and private buyers to our facilities for the importation of Books, Maps, Prints, Music, Autographs, etc. We have now, as our London Agent, a gentleman of large experience, both in this country and in England, who gives special attention to the collection of Old Rare Works, such Modern Works as are "out of print," Works on Special Subjects, etc. Orders are carefully and promptly filled at the lowest rates.
Foreign Magazines, Newspapers, Transactions of Societies, and all other periodical publications supplied with promptness and regularity. Books, etc., for Public Institutions imported free of duty.
LETTERS OF INQUIRY MEET WITH PROMPT ATTENTION.
The Priced Catalogues of the Foreign second-hand Booksellers afford an excellent means of procuring books not usually found in stock in this country, at very reasonable prices. They embrace not only Old, Rare and Curious Books, but the best of Modern Works, desirable editions of Standard Authors, Finely-illustrated Works, etc., mostly purchased at the sales of private libraries, which are constantly taking place.
We receive these Catalogues regularly, and will take pleasure in sending copies to any of our customers who desire them, and import selections made from them. As, however, our orders can not reach the bookseller till about a month after the catalogue was issued, some of the books selected may be sold, as in most cases they have only single copies, but we usually obtain about
three-fourths of all we order.
