Description

Excerpt from List of Catalogues of English Book Sales, 1676-1900, Now in the British Museum In addition to these Special sets the Museum is fairly rich in the earlier catalogues and in those of other firms, though few of these are priced, and fewer still give the purchasers' names. For some twenty years in the middle of the eighteenth century the collection is very weak, but, taken as a whole, it offers to the student of the history of book-collecting an unrivalled mass of material. Partly to preserve this historical interest, but mainly because of the large number of early anonymous sales, and for greater economy in printing, the order of the List itself is chronological, with a full Index of Owners, with the dates of their sales.
