18 Book Catalogues Reviewed in Section Two
May is a busy month for catalogues, with eighteen new ones up for review.
William Reese is offering literature, while Ken Lopez is targeted on just modern literature. Nothing modern about Italian bookseller Lex Antiqua's incunabula and antiquarian books, nor Milou Rare Books' 15th-17th century works. There are bibliographies and auction catalogues from Forest Books, bibliographies and books about books from Oak Knoll. Kenston Rare Books offers titles from Texas and the West, Gene Baade some unusual western items. Chapel Hill Rare Books covers the Civil War and Americana.
Recent acquisitions are the focus of James Cummins Bookseller and Bauman Rare Books. David Schulson offers autographs from many fields, James Pepper has literature, mysteries, and rare cinema, and the Arader Galleries offer Audubon, orchids, India and Indians. Brian Cassidy presents a collection once owned by California writer Theodore Hittell and his family. Gert Jan Bestebreurtje has many works pertaining to the Dutch East Indies.
