Excerpt from Adventures in American Bookshops, Antique Stores and Auction Rooms

Articles discarded in tenement house dwellings and sold for a few pennies to a ragman are triumphantly brought into the reception room of a patrician man sion, treasured by the new owners, and admired by his friends.

Curious and extraordinary are the fortunes of old objects on their way to a new proprietor with whom they will stay for a while, and their wanderings are eternal.

Old things in New York are sold in magnificent establishments on Fifth Avenue, and they are sold in dungeons on the Bowery. Some people are so poor that they have to buy second-hand things to furnish their homes and clothe their bodies. Others are so rich that they are compelled to buy antiques in order to possess something unique.
