Five New Catalogues Reviewed This Month


Five new catalogues are under review.

Five new booksellers' catalogues have come across our desk in the waning days of summer. Jordan Antiquarian Books has produced a catalogue of Americana, including many items pertaining to recreational travel a century or more ago. Waverly Books features literature, film-related material, and a very amusing letter from Rockwell Kent. James Pepper Rare Books offers items from a 16-year-old Truman Capote and Ernest Hemingway's mother in their collection of literature, film, and science fiction. The William Reese Company offers one hundred items of important historical Americana, featuring a letter from Thomas Jefferson with some biting comments directed toward the followers of Alexander Hamilton. From Kaaterskill Books comes a collection of Latin America, including an item from the personal library of the great anthropologist Adolph Bandelier.
