Bookseller's catalogue


Frampton, R.S.



A small catalogue (8.5" x 5.5") of thin wove paper and letterpress; 36 pp. Printed on the front page at upper left and right with the series number: 'No. 34' and the date: '1923-24'. The title: 'A CATALOGUE OF / MISCELLANEOUS BOOKS / Many Suitable for Xmas Presents or New Year Gifts / IN ALL CLASSES OF LITERATURE: ... Offered for Ready Money at affixed prices, by / R.S. FRAMPTON / "WALTON HOUSE," 37 FONTHILL ROAD, FINSBURY PARK / LONDON, N.4.'. Valentines are listed under the heading: 'OLD VALENTINES', between pp. 27 and 28. The catalogue is intact, with no lots cut out. However, a pencil inscription written across lot 582: 'WAS SOLD', presumably by Glaisher, indicates that it was bought by another collector.
