We would call the attention of Librarians and private buyers to our facilities for the importation of Books, Maps, Prints, Music, Autographs, etc. We have now, as our London Agent, a gentleman of large experience, both in this country and in England, who gives special attention to the collection of Old Rare Works, such Modern Works as are “out of print,” Works on Special Subjects, etc. Orders are carefully and promptly filled at the lowest rates.
Foreign Magazines, Newspapers, Transactions of Societies, and all other periodical publications supplied with promptness and regularity.
Books, etc., for Public Institutions imported free of duty.
LETTERS OF INQUIRY MEET WITH PROMPT ATTENTION.
The Priced Catalogues of the Foreign second-hand Booksellers afford an excellent means of procuring books not usually found in stock in this country, at very reasonable prices. They embrace not only Old, Rare and Curious Books, but the best of Modern Works, desirable editions of Standard Authors, Finely-illustrated Works, etc., mostly purchased at the sales of private libraries, which are constantly taking place.
We receive these Catalogues regularly, and will take pleasure in sending copies to any of our customers who desire them, and import selections made from them. As, however, our orders can not reach the bookseller till about a inonth after the catalogue was issued, some of the books selected may be sold, as in most cases they have only single copies, but we usually obtain about three-fourths of all we order.

DESCRIPTIVE LIST OF ROBERT CLARKE & CO'S
FOR SALE BY
We have at last the pleasure of offering to our patrons our new AMERICANA CATALOGUE, which has been so long delayed.
This one, of course, cancels all former Catalogues as to prices. It represents in a measure the general character and variety of our usual stock in this department. There are a large number of works which we aim to keep constantly on hand, but these necessarily vary somewhat in price, according to their condition, increasing scarcity, etc.
Our stock is constantly changing; many books which pass through our hands are never catalogued, being disposed of as soon as received, or taken to fill standing orders.
While we have in many cases duplicates, yet, of a large number, we have only single copies; to secure these early orders are desirable.
Librarians and private buyers will find it to their advantage to send in, from time to time, their lists of books wanted, as we have special facilities for the collection of rare or out of print works of this class. Letters of inquiry meet with prompt attention.
ROBERT CLARKE & CO. CINCINNATI, September 1, 1886.
