Sciences, Japanese & Chinese Books, Bibliography and More from Jonathan A. Hill, Bookseller

Jonathan A. Hill Bookseller has published his Catalogue 218, also described on the cover as "45 Years," celebrating his number of years in the book world. Assuredly, the importance of the material he features has grown with the years. This looks like a book not a catalogue, a hard-bound octavo an inch thick.
