The flattering reception and liberal patronage accorded to our Americana Catalogue of 1876, has induced us to issue this still larger one. It differs from the last in being roughly classified, which will make it more convenient for reference.
This Catalogue represents perhaps the largest and most varied collection of books of this class, in booksellers hands, in this country or Europe. It is a record of our stock at the time the manuscript was completed—three month ago. Some books have, of course, been sold in the intervening time, while many others not in the Catalogue have been added. It exhibits, however, the character and variety of our usual stock.
While we have in many cases duplicates, yet, of a large number we have only single copies ; to secure these early orders are desirable.
Libraries, private buyers, and the trade, will find it to their advantage to send to us their list of books wanted, whether they are in this catalogue or not, as we have especial advantages for the collection of rare books in this class. Letters of inquiry meet with prompt attention.
