Seven New Catalogues Reviewed This Month

- by Michael Stillman


This month we received seven new catalogues from booksellers to review. Donald Heald Rare Books has created a selection of fine books and manuscripts, including Americana and Canadiana, travel, color plate books, natural history, and photography, for the New York book fair. James Cummins Bookseller presents a variety of fine material. Peter Harrington features science, medicine, and natural history.


Four catalogues focus on Americana. The William Reese Company presents American manuscript archives, journals, and narratives. David Lesser Fine Antiquarian Books offers early Americana, primarily pamphlets and shorter form material. Kenston Rare Books focuses on Texas and the American West. Back of Beyond Books offers works from the Colorado Plateau, the American West, books by western author Ivan Doig, and some fiction, poetry, and other historic material.
