Low, Lyman H. AUCTION CATALOGUES, 1904-1905. Twenty-two consecutive auction catalogues, comprising Low’s Sales 85-106, complete for the years 1904 and 1905, bound in one volume. Includes both plates called for in the October 1904 sale of the H.G. Brown collection. All sales neatly hand-priced in red ink. 8vo, contemporary half cloth and mottled boards; spine ruled and lettered in gilt. Binding a bit rubbed, but sound. Near fine. A remarkable volume, bringing together 22 consecutive Low sales, his entire output for 1904 and 1905, including one of his few plated sales. The October 1904 sale of Part I of the H.G. Brown collection is scarce and perhaps Low’s most important sale of American coins. The 1804 dollar was purchased for $1100 by W.F. Dunham, and was subsequently sold in the famous Mehl sale nearly four decades later.
