3. The advertisements for this sale in the San Francisco Chronicle also mention “over 100” (or “over 200”, depending on which advertisement one is reading) sketches but the catalog does not list any sketches.
4. Over 50 of the 200-odd painting titles in this catalog also appear in either the catalog for a sale in Victoria, British Columbia on 2 and 3 July 1885 or in the catalog for a sale in Salt Lake City on May 24, 1886. These titles are probably of paintings that failed to sell and were carried over from one auction to the next.
