"It has been usual to preface the Sale Catalogues of important Libraries with a note calling attention to the most interesting books in them. In the case of the Huth Library, however, it has not been thought necessary to do this, owing to the widespread fame of the collection and to the fact that students and collectors have now been familiar with it more than a generation, through the catalogue published in 1880. This catalogue we have used as the basis of the present sale catalogue, revising and amplifying it throughout, in order to include in it, so far as possible, all the latest results of bibliographical research.
