Fifteen New Catalogues Reviewed
- by Michael Stillman
15 catalogues reviewed this month.
There are 15 new bookseller catalogues up for review this month, many focused on interesting niches. There are outstanding collections of maps offered by Daniel Crouch Rare Books and High Ridge Books. Restoration Books is presenting Part II of the collection of William Boeing, the renown aircraft and airline builder whose name is synonymous with large airplanes. Actually, his interests went far beyond planes. Between The Covers Rare Books has a selection of “firsts,” including first editions and other types of “firsts.”
The Veatchs Arts of the Book has a catalogue of alphabets for adults. Bruce McKittrick Rare Books focuses on the Rules. Sotheran's offers a collection of private press works. The William Reese Company has a selection of books made rare because copies were “destroyed by fire,” or suppressed or destroyed by some other means. For those looking to travel back in time, Helen Kahn & Associates offers books printed before 1700. If instead, you would like to travel sideways, Lorne Bair has a selection of books that will take you, politically speaking, to the left. And, if instead, you just want to travel, there are books on voyages and travel available from Maggs Bros.
Garrett Scott, Bookseller, has another collection of odd and unusual works. Strange would be another apt description. Plaza Books features books about Mexico and the American Southwest. Antiquariat Banzhaf has a collection of early photography, while Simon Beattie is focused on manuscripts.
