The late George Pepperdine was an inveterate buyer of the choicest books of the best authors as they were published during the last twentyfive years. His library consists of about nine thousand volumes, and a more engaging collection of readable books in the best editions has rarely been offered for sale. The present catalogue consists chiefly of the larger works, including collected editions of American and English authors, sets of the great New English Dictionary, Encyclopædia Brittanica, The Loeb Classical Library and a large number of important works in single volumes.

With an occasional exception, which is noted in the catalogue, all the volumes are as fresh as when issued.
