CATALOGUE OF BOOKS,

DEPARTMENTS OF LITERATURE,

RARE, WALUABLE, AND CURIOUS,

“The benefit which is derived from literature will depend, not so much upon the literature
itself, as upon the skill with which it is studied, and the judgment with which it is
selected.”—Buckle's Civilization, i. 1858, p. 247.

PREFACE.

In presenting this Classified Catalogue of my present stock to Book Buyers and to Public Institutions; I beg to remark that the Books are .all in fine Library condition, aud the prices as moderate as valuable and rare Books can now be sold for.

The arrangement is occasionally irregular, as I have been anxious to insert New Purchases belonging to Classes already printed, and this could only be done by adding them to other Classes still in progress.

The Index is nearly perfect; it includes all the divisions and subdivisions of the Catalogue, and a large proportion of the Books.

New Purchases are added to my stock every day;—they are advertised gradually in my Monthly Catalogues, which are sent post-free for three shillings per annum. To eager collectors, I recommend at least a weekly call at my Establishment to secure an early sight of these New purchases.

To Gentlemen forming a Library, I recommend my services to supply all the best Standard Books of English Literature, with an admixture of such Foreign Works as are indispensable in a good English Library.

To Collectors of Rare Books, I offer my assistance in procuring their Desiderata; my extensive connections with Book-sellers and Book-collectors throughout Europe, give me a fair hope of success.

New English and Foreign Books I supply at the usual rate.

Gentlemen residing abroad can have All their London CommisSions carefully attended to.

Finally, I beg that this Catalogue may not be judged severely; being a Bookseller's Catalogue, it has only one object, and that is: to attain the sale of the Books advertised. Every Book has however been honestly described, and Gentlemen favouring me with tbeir Orders can rely upon receiving good copies in good condition.
