Many new catalogues reviewed.

This month we are reviewing 13 new bookseller catalogues. Many different subjects are featured this time around. Andersons Books and Prints has issued their first catalogue, and it's about time!... a title with a double meaning. Phillip J. Pirages has focused on an amazing selection of fine bindings. Librairie Thomas-Scheler presents a small but special collection of highly valued works.

 

Asher Rare Books and the Antiquariaat Forum again have cooperated, this time to create a catalogue of science and medicine. Peter Harrington turns to economics, politics, and philosophy. For L & T Respess, it's not quite so gentle a persuasion – their catalogue focuses on big game hunting and guns.

 

Americana is well represented this time. The William Reese Company features new acquisitions in Americana. For David M. Lesser Fine Antiquarian Books, the subject is rare Americana. John Windle Bookseller presents voyages and Americana, while Kaaterskill Books offers Latin Americana.

 

Honey & Wax Booksellers always has unusual and surprising material on tap. Oak Knoll Books is a leader in the field of books about books and bibliography. Shapero Rare Books has a new selection of 50 fine books to display.
