Anyone have this Snippet?

I don't think I've groused recently about how much I hate Google Book Search's snippet view, which for auction records provides just enough information to tantalize but not enough to be able to figure out the specific sale/volume/&c. to actually be able to find the record. Gah.

Anyway, I'm looking for this one; if anyone happens to have any 1972 Parke-Bernet sale catalogs handy, would you mind checking p. 42 and seeing if it contains information relating to an Alexander Hamilton book? If so, I'd be more than delighted to know what the full record says, and what the sale was.

I fully participate in your hatred of Google Books' Snippet View. Usually it's not even the right snippet! *Shaking my fist at Google*
