At the first sale of the Cooke library recently, in which Harvard, Yale, Brown and other colleges had each a choice of $5000 worth of books, we are informed that Harvard obtained only about $150 worth, most of which were not very valuable. The college did not bid very liberally and obtained some books, duplicates of which are already in the library. Some of the volumes in the Cooke library are very rare and valuable. There will be two more sales, one next fall and the last one next spring, when Harvard will bid more highly and hopes to be more successful.
