His intimate acquaintance with all departments of Literature, his extensive and valuable stock, his staff of well-trained assistants, and his established reputation as a man of business, guarantee prompt and efficient service.

He attends the BOOK-SALES in London and elsewhere personally, and thus has many opportunities of securing literary rarities sought after in vain by collectors.

His Catalogues of valuable and standard English and Foreign books are sent regularly on application to every book


Mr. QUARITCH trusts that his extensive stock will for the future be better known to collectors and literary men, and that many gentlemen who have hitherto denied themselves the pleasure of purchasing good books at moderate prices will avail themselves of the facilities which are offered for the gratification of their taste.

Parcels of moderate size can be despatched by Parcel Post at a very low rate. Large orders are shipped regularly. Enclosures of any value are received and forwarded.

MONEY ORDERS may be obtained at any Money-order Office in India, British China, Australia, America, etc., payable in London.
