Excerpt from Book-Prices Current, Vol. 7: A Record of the Prices at Which Books Have Been Sold at Auction, From December, 1892, to November, 1893
The sales by auction reported in this volume represent nearly lots of property and probably double that number of books. The total... amount realized was 155. 6d., a good but not unusual average. N 0 really first-class library has been dispersed during the current year, but one reported on p. 23, under the title of a portion of the Library of a Gentleman, deceased, would un doubtedly have merited that position had it been larger. Although there were only 418 lots in the catalogue the amount realized was rather more than an average that has only been exceeded a few times during the last three or four years.
