Among the books on offer:

- Several signed Edward Gorey items, including two cut figure books;
- A complete run of the Palatine Review, which was founded by Aldous Huxley;
- The smallest book about Theodore Roosevelt: Facts about the Candidate;
- L' Art du Maquillage, a colorfully illustrated French treatise on various types of makeup techniques.

We hope you enjoy this eclectic selection. As always we are available to answer any questions and look forward to hearing from you.
