This collection is believed to possess an almost exclu-
sive richness in dramatic boohs. Many of them are
positively not to be duplicated. For instance, "The Secret

Library, Pictures and Effects marked at Sale" ; " Bunn's
Stage," filled ivith autograph Letters ; Malibran's and
Kelly's Memoirs ; all of Bunn's librettos, edited by his own
conceited hand; and a variety of Biographies, illustrated
by inserted Plates ; also a collection of books relating to
Shakespeare, which is not so extensive as it is odd. There
are two sets of Shakespeare especially illustrated— one by
the late owner— with inserted Plates. There is a 1 so the music
of Shakespeare' s acting plays. There is the Slvakespeare in
outline drawings. There are dramatic Treatises, and a
arge number of Plays difficult to procure.

This collection is known to be unusually rich in criminal
and sensational Trials, and in volumes scarce and quaint,
illustrative of the History of the Law and of legal occur-
rences within 200 years. What are in effect the original
Trials of Charles I. and Louis XYL. are here. The books
included under the one head of Legal Literature cost their
late owner over $5,000.

Here are the original volumes of Greeley's first news-
paper, " The New Yorker"— germ of the " Tribune" ; the
first volume of the " Herald," an early volume of the
"Sun" and volumes of spasmodic journalism not readily
to be duplicated. The '" Arcturus" Magazine, Duyckinck's
" Literary World" in full,, " Vanity Fair," " Mrs. Grundy,"
" Yankee Doodle," the " Figaro" that preceded " Punch,"



and a set of "London Illustrated News," ' British An-
nual Register" from 1758, Ackerman's " La Belle Assem-
blee," etc., etc.

In local literature is a set of Central Bark Minutes
and Reports, a full set of Valentine Manuals {the two
absent volumes being substantial duplicates of a preced-
ing one, and 1867 being unknown), Laws and Ordinances
and Bamphlets, Sketches and Maps relating to .Yew York
City, and the volumes of Bolton's " History of Westchester
County," noiv very scarce.

There is practically a Library of British and Ameri-
can Poets, handsomely bound, uniformly— say to year 187 3.

Dickens, Thackeray, Bulwer and Hawthorne ; soms of
them with autographs inserted. Also a full uncut copy
