Thousands of items described and priced from the Carl Petersen Faulkner collection. This would become Serendipity Books Catalogue 48. Laid in is a typed letter from the bookseller and proprietor of Serendipity Books, Peter Howard, explaining the genesis of this photocopied typescript catalogue, "The Garnett description I took from the sale catalogue given me by Carl. I am sending you a copy of this cat....By comparing what Carl gave to me; this cat, & what I produced, you can note the chanes [sic] made. The prices in the margins were his rough est of what he was charging me piece by piece, though the figures in this copy may be in my hand. I made several copies of his cat. He made this cat (for me) because his book & supplement did not describe everything he had, & I wanted his opinion on values. Thanks" [unsigned]. Each item has a marginal price notation. Peter Howard has penciled on the first page, "This is Carl Petersen's final catalogue of his collection from which I made my catalogue (in part) Peter Howard". Top half of stab binding device detached but bottom half holding.
