The sixth general catalogue of the Mercantile Library of Philadelphia Singerman no.2878. Compared to some earlier productions, the 1850 catalogue is rather sophisticated, combining a classified catalogue of about 4,990 main entries, an index of authors and subjects of biographies, a selective alphabetical list of titles "such as are most popular and more liable to be looked for under the title...," and a selected list of works by subject. Covers worn with both hinges cracked and covers close to becoming loose.
