Haseltine, John W. AUCTION CATALOGUES. New York and Philadelphia, 1870-84. Seventy-four different auction catalogues, being Adams Nos. 2, 5-7, 9, 11-15, 17, 18, 20-29, 31, 32, 34-54, 56-69 and 71-85. 8vo, all in original printed wraps. Thirteen with partial or complete pricing; one with original printed prices realized list. Generally very good or better, with a couple exceptions. A nearly complete set of 74 Haseltine auction catalogues, including some scarce ones. John W. Adams has written that “Over the years, the Haseltine catalogs have attracted little attention, even from advanced students. Such neglect is difficult to understand, the more so given that the man was the leading authority of his day in at least four branches of U.S. numismatics: colonial paper, Confederate paper, varieties of early silver and mint patterns. The eighty-seven sales are rich in all of these branches.” Copies of Haseltine’s first sale, as well as his famous Chubbuck (Adams 8) and Type Table (Adams 55) sales, are listed elsewhere in this catalogue. See Mason’s sale dated Feb. 16-17, 1871 for another possible Haseltine entry.
