In presenting our one hundred and thirtieth catalogue of rare books and choice manuscripts we have pleasure in calling the attention of the book-buying world to our fiftieth anniversary as booksellers. Ludwig Rosenthal, who founded his antiquarian bookstore in 1859, is to-day, after fifty years, still at the head of the firm that bears his name. In the last five years we have found it possible to add largely to our business facilities. The entrance of Ludwig Rosenthal's sons into the firm, and the acquisition of additional book-warehouses (for the storage of our stock of over a million books and prints) have enabled us to deal with a greater volume of business. One word as to the present catalogue. There are nine item of which only one complete copy is known, either including or in

addition to our own, and there are sixty-nine items of unique interest. A glance through the catalogue itself will do more to explain it than pages of description." The portrait here given is that of Herr Rosenthal at the present time.
