Eight catalogues are under review.

Eight new catalogues have arrived for November. Michael Vinson has a catalogue of Americana that features an extraordinary selection of fundamental Mormon works. The William Reese Company also offers a selection of significant acquisitions in Americana. The Raab Collection presents history in documents, and while most of these are from the field of Americana as well, we also find some important European items.

 

Mark Selvaggio Books & Ephemera has a large group of ephemeral items, and they are a strange lot indeed. Forest Books also covers a large territory with a new miscellany. James Cummins Bookseller presents a selection of fall arrivals. August Laube offers prints, rare books and drawings from their home base in Switzerland, while Peter Harrington has created a gallery of artistic works.
