A Checklist of Libraries and Collections of Books Catalogued and Sold by Samuel Paterson, 1747-1802
This checklist of book-sale catalogues is the appendix to William Noblett, “Samuel Paterson and the London Auction Market for Second-Hand Book, 1755-1802,” published in the Vol. 108, No. 2 (June) issue of Papers of the Bibliographical Society of America. It contains a preliminary compilation of Paterson’s book-sale catalogues based primarily on an intensive examination of contemporary newspaper advertisements as well as explanatory notes and a census of known extant copies.
