Since the close of last season The Anderson Auction Company has acquired the premises No. 12 East 46th Street as its permanent office and home. The building has been practically reconstructed and specially fitted up with all known facilities for the efficient operation of this business. To the usual offices, sales and exhibition rooms, receiving and shipping department, etc., there have been added attractive sky-lighted Picture Galleries for the exhibition and sale of Paintings and other high class Art Collections.
The opening sale of the season was held on the afternoon and evening of October 19, and one hundred and nine daily sessions have since been announced, with an unusual quantity of uncatalogued material on hand. In the average high quality of the books sold and in the prices received the season has been a record one in the history of American Book Auctions. The sales yet to come will be found not inferior in interest and value.
The Company [with its predecessor, Bangs & Co.] has had an uninterrupted business of seventy-five years' duration and has conducted the bulk of all of the important sales of literary property held in America during that period. With an improved organization and larger facilities, the Company invites a continuation of the patronage of its friends, both buyers and sellers, throughout the country, with the assurance that their interests, as heretofore, will be administered with absolute fidelity.
Executors and Administrators of Estates having Libraries or Art Collections to sell, Librarians, Publishers and Booksellers are invited to correspond with us. Catalogues will be sent on
