OF THE LATE PRINCE LOUIS-LUCIEN BONAPARTE; Being a final collection of all those of which any copies now remain for sale.
MESSRS. H. SOTHERAN & CO. beg to call attention at the end of the JULY Number (just published) of their PRICE CURRENT of LITERATURE to a
LIST OF ALL THE PHILOLOGICAL PUBLICATIONS of the late Prince L.-L. Bonaparte of which any copies now remain for sale.
It would be needless to insist on the unique interest and value of the privately printed philological publications of the late Prince L.-L. Bonaparte. It is enough to say that they were the fruit of the whole devotion of a fortune and a life to the cause of science; while owing to the retiring character of their author they are still most insufficiently known. Perfect sets may be said to scarcely exist save in the Prince's own library (now for sale) and in a few public libraries ; but the following is very little short of complete, and comprises every piece, however small, of which any copies have been discovered to reinain. Of no one of them were more than twO HUNDRED AND FIFTY COPIES printed in all. Each piece has been priced as low as possible to put copies within reach of linguistic students; while to purchasers of the collection as a whole the price would be reduced to 105l.
In addition to this, the present Number of the PRICE CURRENT contains a very good General Collection of STANDARD BOOKS for the LIBRARY at very moderate prices. A copy post free on application. HENRY SOTHERAN & CO.,
