Which are this Day Selling (for Ready Money) by Thomas Egerton, Bookseller, at the Military Library, Whitehall.1796

[London]. [iv],403,[1]pp., title and last leaf a little dog-eared and soiled, inner margin of title-page repaired with slight loss on text, from the reference library of H.P. Kraus, recent cloth-backed boards. "John Egerton... a bookseller of great eminence in Whitehall. To the literati he was a useful man; he knew books well; and his memory, uncommonly retentive, was seldom at a loss through the varieties of dates, prices, and sizes. In the sale-room he was conspicuously clever, and put the excellencies of an article very forcibly to the bidders. In private life his character and conduct were very exemplary; and his zeal and activity in business few have exceeded." — Timperley, Dictionary of Printers and Printing. ESTC records British Library & Bodleian copies only.
