eCatalogues: Fresh Offers and Ideas

As paper catalogues decline in frequency the decline is offset by a rise in electronic catalogues.  This month there are 20 fresh efforts and another dozen since July 1st.  These catalogues reflect both the material coming in the door as well as, for most dealers, their specialties.  Take some time to read through them.  They are windows into dealer perspective.

 

Reading Rare Book Monthly, the Catalogue Reviews and the eCatalogues is free to all.   Posting here is available for Research and higher level memberships.  If you are eligible use it.  It’s smart.
