Monday, March 3d, 1884, and the following days.

TWO SESSIONS DAILY, AT 2.30 O'CLOCK, AND 7.30 P. M.

GEO. A. LEAVITT & CO., AUCTIONEERS.

NEW YORK, 1884.

Orders to Purchase executed by the Auctioneers, FREE OF CHARGE.

NOTICE

To Librarians, Library Committees, and Bookbuyers.

To better accommodate the clistant buyers to whom we mail Catalogues, and for parties unable to be present, the Auctioneers will execute all ORDERS FREE OF CHARGE. In ordering from our catalogues give the NUMBER OF THE LOT, as well as the FIRST WORD 'OF TITLE, and extreme limit PER VOLUME, or (if engravings or pamphlets), PER PIECE, which will be used only in competition, or exactly as the purchaser would bid for himself. If unlimited orders are given, a proper discretion will be exercised.

Our catalogues are compiled by experts, who endeavor to give buyers, as far as practicable, a fair idea of the condition of every lot offered for sale. We, however, neither guarantee the absolute correctness of any description, nor the perfect condition of any lot.

It should be understood that each lot is sold separately, and by itself, as catalogued, and without reference to any other lot. Orders to purchase sent to us should, therefore, be for each lot on its own merits.

PURCHASES SENT DIRECT TO THE AUCTIONEERS ARE ALWAYS MADE AS MUCH BELOW THE AMOUNT NAMED IN THE ORDER AS CIRCUMSTANCES WARRANT.

Few book buyers, comparatively, are aware of the many advantages of attending our sales, and of the facility with which a good library may be completed. Often at these sales, libraries, which have been selected by persons of judgment, are distributed to all parts of the United States. This enables buyers to profit by the experience of others, and at the same time to make selections of choice editions and valuable books, often at much less price than they could be procured from other sources.

Catalogues mailed gratis, on application.

CONSIGXMENTS OF LARGE OR SMALL COLLECTIONS SOLICITED.
