When in 1919 I bought the library of Mr. William Loring Andrews I did not put the Americana into stock but left it in storage. It was my idea to put the Americana aside until last summer and during the summer months prepare a special catalogue, but owing to a very busy summer season in addition to the great amount of work entailed in enlarging my store, I was unable to give the time to the Americana Catalogue. Now that I am in the middle of another busy season I do not feel that I will have time to do as I wish about the Americana until next summer. In the meantime I have had many requests for many of Mr. Andrews' books in this line.
For these reasons I have now decided to send you this Collection to be sold at auction, and I should like you to say in the catalogue that every item, including the famous Bradford Map, is to be sold without any reserve whatsoever. If I do any bidding it will be strictly for the accounts of my clients whose names I shall be pleased to furnish on request.
Yours very truly,
us at Drake
