New catalogues reviewed.
Eleven new catalogues are reviewed in Section Two this month. Lorne Bair Rare Books presents 100 fine literary works. Peter Harrington offers 75 exceptional books and manuscripts. A pair of Dutch and a pair of German booksellers each combined to create catalogues of items for display at the recent California International Book Fair. From the Netherlands came the Antiquariaat Forum and Asher Rare books; from Germany came Antiquariat Banzhaf and Antiquariat Kuhn.
Antiquariat Eigl features books about travel and exploration. Aquila Books is focused on the polar regions. Gert Jan Bestebreurtje Rare Books looks at the territories that were once run by the Dutch West India Company.
Gene W. Baade offers items relating to the American West. Back of Beyond Books focuses on America's natives. The William Reese Company targets American manuscripts.
Finally, in a category unto itself, Simon Beattie and Justin Croft present a catalogue of English verse from 1750-1800.
