11 new catalogues reviewed this month.

This month we review 11 new bookseller catalogues. Travels and voyages are the subject of recent collections from J. F. Letenneur Rare Books and the William Reese Company. If you want to take one of those voyages, you will need one of these maps, atlases, or charts offered by Daniel Crouch Rare Books. If your destination ranges from the Black Sea to the China Sea, you can prepare yourself with one of the books offered by Shapero Rare Books.

 

Zinos Books has published their first catalogue. It is filled with rare and antiquarian European books. Alternatively, you can find Canadiana, and some Americana, in the latest selection from Patrick McGahern Books. And, for Western Americana, there is a new catalogue available from Old West Books.

 

Zephyr Used & Rare Books features a collection of wonders from the curious to the mundane. Whitmore Rare Books presents a selection of fine literature. Phillip J. Pirages Fine Books and Manuscripts and Raptis Rare Books offer a variety of fine books.
