Seven new catalogues.

This month we review seven new book catalogues. John Windle Antiquarian Bookseller features 35 works of natural history. These are important and beautiful items. Jonathan A. Hill Bookseller targets a variety of European and Japanese books and ephemera from centuries past. Patrick McGahern Books turns their attention north, far north, to the Arctic (and occasionally south to the Antarctic).

 

Zephyr Used & Rare Books has a selection of unusual and uncommon archives, photographs, and books. Joe Rubinfine has a new collection of autographed Americana. Shapero Rare Books is focused on the history of the House of Romanov. The William Reese Company offers items featured at the recent New York Antiquarian Book Fair.
