St. Louis, c. 1905-29. 24mo, original printed card covers. Twenty-four catalogues, all in the original printed card covers; lot also includes a copy of a 1930-31 Premium List. A few covers a bit worn and/or loose, with some chipping; text of some issues browned as usual but generally a near fine run. Very scarce. Originally owned by F.E. Ellis, Burdette G. Johnson and D.A. Sutherland purchased the firm in 1907 and Johnson became sole owner the following year. A dealer's dealer, Johnson marketed his extensive stock via auctions (until 1915), the series of price lists offered here, and primarily, through private transactions. The price lists present here are, however, not without highlights. No. 11, for example, featured portions of George Rice's collection, including Indian peace medals and numismatic books. Bourne pages 115-117. Ex Michael Spurlock library.
