E-catalogues

E-catalogue 40: Recent Acquisitions for Early Summer

Welcome to our 40th e-catalogue, comprised of a varied, interesting selection of recent acquisitions priced under $2,000. When putting this selection together, we aimed to include books that covered all of our specialty areas, which in a couple of cases, are combined. This grouping also reflects some of our present buying focus: included here are several movables, one of which is by contemporary French artist Philippe Huger. Press books, as always, are well represented and include two illuminated Roycroft Press books and a fine set of the Nonesuch Blake with good provenance and wearing unrecorded dust wrappers. We hope you enjoy our offering and wish all of our customers a fine, relaxing summer.

E-catalogue 39: Holiday Gifts

A book is a very personal object. Scanning a person's shelves, one can learn a lot about a person's tastes, including idiosyncrasies and unusual interests. As a gift, a special book speaks eloquently and intimately to the recipient. We display a small sign in the shop, reading "Rare Books make Fine Gifts, Fine Books make Rare Gifts." Being squarely in the middle of the holiday season, we offer a selection of Fine and Rare Books that might appeal to yourselves or those on your gift list. Please let us know when checking out if your order is a gift that must arrive before a certain date. As always, we thank you for taking the time to peruse our list, and we wish you the happiest of holiday seasons.

E-catalogue 38: Recent Acquisitions

Ushering in what is always a busy and exciting season here in New England, we have assembled an equally fresh and exciting group of recent acquisitions for your consideration. Among the over twenty items on offer is a wealth of original material from the fertile Arts and Crafts period in England, including artwork for a wedding invitation by Georgie Gaskin and two letters from Charles Ricketts. Highlighting the offerings in illustrated books is a brilliant copy of the Theodore Press's handsome edition of King Lear, with woodcuts by Claire Van Vliet. From several small collections purchased over the summer comes a lovely selection of miniature books, including several from the Amistad and Poole Presses. Fine press books from the Vale and Tiramisu Presses round out the offering. As always, we thank you for reading and hope you find something irresistible.
