E-catalogue 40: Recent Acquisitions for Early Summer

Welcome to our 40th e-catalogue, comprised of a varied, interesting selection of recent acquisitions priced under $2,000. When putting this selection together, we aimed to include books that covered all of our specialty areas, which in a couple of cases, are combined. For instance, we are offering a copy of Thoreau's A Yankee in Canada -- one of 1,546 copies of the first edition -- that features a very handsome full morocco binding by Stern & Dess.

This grouping also reflects some of our present buying focus: included here are several movables, one of which is by contemporary French artist Philippe Huger. Press books, as always, are well represented and include two illuminated Roycroft Press books and a fine set of the Nonesuch Blake with good provenance and wearing unrecorded dust wrappers.

We hope you enjoy our offering and wish all of our customers a fine, relaxing summer.
