Notes: "The books described in this catalogue were collected, several years since, by Mr. Henry Stevens ... as material to be used in the completion of his yet unfinished work upon American bibliography. Having made such use of the books as was necessary for this purpose, he described them, with collations, and prices for sale affixed, in a catalogue printed about four years ago, entitled American nuggets. Only three or four copies of that catalogue were permitted to go out of his hands, and a few of the books have been sold; but, on account of his large accessions of works of the same class, the public circulation of the catalogue was delayed until the preparation of other volumes of the series could be completed. The greatly altered value of many of the books described in the Nuggets ... has induced the conviction that the circulation of that catalogue now, or at any future time, as a means for the sale of its contents, would not be fair either to buyer or seller. Mr. Stevens has therefore determined to submit the entire unsold portion of the Nuggets to unreserved public competition ... . The titles in the following catalogue have been abridged ... ."--p.
