E-catalogue 38: Recent Acquisitions

Ushering in what is always a busy and exciting season here in New England, we have assembled an equally fresh and exciting group of recent acquisitions for your consideration. Among the over twenty items on offer is a wealth of original material from the fertile Arts and Crafts period in England, including artwork for a wedding invitation by Georgie Gaskin and two letters from Charles Ricketts. Highlighting the offerings in illustrated books is a brilliant copy of the Theodore Press's handsome edition of King Lear, with woodcuts by Claire Van Vliet. From several small collections purchased over the summer comes a lovely selection of miniature books, including several from the Amistad and Poole Presses. Fine press books from the Vale and Tiramisu Presses round out the offering.

As always, we thank you for reading and hope you find something irresistible.
