108 East Fourteenth Street, New York.

BOSTON: T. R. MARVIN & SON, NUMISMATIC PRINTERS. 1897.

The Archaeological Collection described in the following pages was formed by a well known Collector, who now, for private reasons, relinquishes the pleasurable pursuit which for so many years engrossed his moments of leisure. Every specimen in the Collection was selected with deliberate discrimination, with the view of exemplifying the best forms of arms and implements conceived and fashioned by the pre historic man of that part of the North American Continent embraced within the present United States. Such objects are of great interest and value to all those interested in this branch of Archaeology, and the opportunity offered of adding perfect specimens, at their own price, to their cabinets, is one seldom occurring.

Among the objects of marked interest will be found a Wampum Treaty Belt; a large number of Ceremonial Pipes, including some very rare forms; various objects in hematite, obsidian, copper, etc.; the rare Idols from Arizona; Incas Temple Vases in beaten silver from the necropolis of Ancona, etc., etc. The arms, foreign and Revolutionary, at the end of Catalogue, will be recognized by all interested in the subject as valuable specimens, worthy to figure in the best Collections.

Every object in this Collection will be sold, with the guarantee, by the Cataloguer, of its absolute authenticity and genuineness, both as regards material and attribution.

Orders faithfully executed by the Auctioneers and Art Dealers generally.
