2) 2 days of sales (4-5 Dec 1861) at the Liverpool and London Chambers, Exchange, Liverpool

Each page of the catalogue is inserted into the volume, with corresponding page(s) handwritten record of each catalogue number, the amount each item was sold for, and the buyer. Please note: the spine of this volume is very fragile.
