Catalogue of books, 1832.

n.p. [likely New England]: [1832-50]. Small 8vo, [64]pp. of 16 are filled in, and list better than 375 titles; 4 early leaves have been excised, but the catalogue begins anew with a title-p., as above; contemporary vellum with metal clasp, the word "Catalogue" in ink on upper cover and spine. An American book catalogue listing 164 titles under the heading "Theology," 17 titles under "Classics," 28 titles under "Works of Science," 35 titles under "History & Biography," 91 titles under "General Literature," and 42 titles under "Miscellaneous." A few of the titles have lines drawn through them, as if they had gone missing or were dispersed; most entries in ink, a few later ones in pencil; all titles given in abbreviated form, with no dates, but with the number of volumes, such as Cruden's Concordance (1), or Novum Testamentum Koppianum (2), or Plutarch's Lives (8), or Gilles' Greece (4), or just The Panoplist, or Oliver Twist. Nonetheless, an interesting insight into an American private library, or possibly a circulating library. A penciled note on the title-p. references "B. C. Brooks (?)." Item #26267
