Eleven Catalogues Reviewed This Month


Eleven new catalogues are reviewed.

This month we have 11 new bookseller catalogues to review. Most have highly targeted subjects, rather than general catalogues or miscellanies. Jonathan A. Hill Bookseller features science, medicine, natural history, Chinese and Japanese books and manuscripts, bibliographies and book history, along with some other fields. Bernard Quaritch Ltd. presents books on food & drink from the library of Christopher Hogwood. Aleph-Bet Books has a new selection of children's books.


Langdon Manor Books has issued their first catalogue, and it targets African-Americana, archives and American social movements. Lorne Bair Rare Books features radical literature, art and photography, and African-Americana. Bjarne Tokerud Bookseller covers early voyages and discovery, overland expeditions to British Columbia, and the Pacific Northwest.


Riverrun Books & Manuscripts' Catalogue One features the Adirondacks and beyond. Peter Harrington offers a collection of the works of Arthur Rackham. Jeff Weber Rare Books has books by and about explorer Richard Burton, the Middle East, and Persia.


Finally, a pair of French bookseller, Librairie Cavreuil and Knuf Rare Books, offer some very old French and other European books and catalogues. To see all of these reviews, click here now.
