Due to losses suffered in the Great Depression, William Hearst began to sell off items from the family's collection. This included artworks, furnishings, tapestries, rugs, ceramics, glassware, arms and armor, books, autographs, and manuscripts. This auction catalogue was printed by Gimbel Brothers, New York, in cooperation with Saks Fifth Avenue, under the direction of Hammer Galleries.
