THOS. E. KIRBY, AUCTIONEER.
This being an Executor's sale to close the estate, a cash deposit will be required from every purchaser without exception.
Intending purchasers wishing to avoid the trouble and confusion of making a deposit during the sale, can make arrangements previous to day of sale, with the managers or auctioneer, at their office, 6 East Twenty-third Street.
With the aid of Mr. J. O. Wright as to the library, and Mr. J. M. Falconer as to the engravings and etchings, we have endeavored to make descriptions in this catalogue accurate, but we guarantee neither description nor condition, as two weeks' public exhibition will allow ample time for a careful examination.
AMERICAN ART ASSOCIATION,
Managers. THOMAS E. KIRBY, Auctioneer.
