Catalogue 134 contains a wide variety of new miniature books, from almanacs and diminutive livres de artiste, to a set of Shakespeare's Works, published by David Bryce and bound in many bright colors of morocco.
This selection of recently acquired items includes several works about the book arts and papermaking, brilliant Art Deco pochoir portfolios, miniature books, a treatise on French landscape architecture, and much more.
Although people approach book collecting in myriad ways, one common unifying thread among collectors has to do with the way in which they began collecting: the memory of a book from their formative years, and the desire to own it again. The following selection was gathered with this in mind: books that have shaped thought, entertained us, provoked us, and made us better for having read them. This catalog was selected as the Pick of the Week by Ibookcollector when it was released in 2010.
Catalogue 132 contains our entire stock of juvenile books, games, toys, artwork, and reference books. This includes paper dolls, puzzles, moveable books, optical toys, chapbooks, original artwork for works of children's literature, music and nursery rhymes, and shaped books. Take a look and rediscover a piece of your own childhood.
