31b350a4-6aa3-4674-b592-7e0f1020b189

Seven new catalogues.

This month we review seven new catalogues. Samuel Gedge Ltd., Forest Books, and Erasmushaus offer catalogues with a variety of mostly antiquarian works from what are, for the time being anyway, European Union booksellers. The William Reese Company features American beginnings from Cortes to Lewis and Clark. Peter Harrington focuses on travel and exploration. John Windle Antiquarian Bookseller targets six specific specialties: William Blake, literature, children's books, illuminated manuscripts, fine press, and fine bindings. Michael S. Kemp Bookseller, Gresham Books, and Peter Hill Books combine to present a selection of estate and parish maps, plans, surveys, valuations, and terriers.
