T HE Library of Mr. William J. Le Moyne, the
well-known comedian, is not a professional collection merely, but rather the works garnered in many years by a many-sided reader and lover of books. Among them are many of highest interest to lovers of the stage, but many others illustrate the cultivated tastes of the owner in widely separated fields of thought and research.
Mr. Le Moyne has evidently cared less for special editions than for the contents of his books; but many interesting items will be found by the collector as well as by the general reader.
The Portraits, Prints and Miscellaneous Collection of Mr. Le Moyne will be separately catalogued and sold later as Part II.
