Narrative
The June 1939 auction of Dunsmuir furnishings from Hatley Park was attended by many Victorians. In stark contrast to the 1909 Craigdarroch auction, the history of many items sold from Hatley Park was remembered by the descendants of buyers. Some of these items are now in Craigdarroch's museum collection and are listed in this auction catalogue, including the set of Chambers Encyclodedias that form part of this accession. 
History of Use
This catalogue was used by the source's father on June 3, 1939 when he attended the auction sale at Hatley Park. He purchased a set of Chamber's Encyclopedias (see 984.064.001) and kept them together with this catalogue at his Victoria residence. The source sold this catalgue and the encyclopedias to The Castle Society in 1984.
