Twelve New Catalogues Reviewed for August

85a7c945-ccb2-4b24-a465-fdb488ac7e2e

Twelve new catalogues.

This month 12 new bookseller catalogues are reviewed. Some are highly targeted, others feature a wide variety of material. A few are location centered. The William Reese Company and David M. Lesser Antiquarian Books target Americana. Patrick McGahern Books tilts towards their home in Canada, though they also feature items from America and European countries that played a major role in their country's development. Aquila Books focuses on the far north and far south with a catalogue on the polar regions.

 

Brian Cassidy Books offers a selection of material from the 1960's-1980's underground. L & T Respess Books features art, architecture, and design. From Jonathan A. Hill Bookseller we find works related to agriculture, bibliography, and a few other topics. There is probably no need to state the specialty you will find offered by The Lawbook Exchange.

 

Peter Grogan has a variety in his Catalogue #1. Peter Harrington features an assortment of important material. Samuel Gedge Ltd. offers a wide selection of very old works on paper. The Antiquariaat Forum and Asher Rare Books combine to also feature a wide variety of interesting material.
