New catalogue New York bookfair 2019Published on 26 Feb. 2019
This year we are particularly proud of our catalogue because of its
diversity and the rarity of the material offered.
Therefore it might be worth your time to take a peek in our catalogue
and see if you can find something that you might like. The
catalogue is divided in simple sections: Manuscripts up to 1600,
1600-1800, present day, followed by Printed Books of 15th till 20th
century. There are two final sections covering voyages & exploration
and maps, photographs and prints.
I would add as well we are bringing considerable material to the NYC
Fair that is not in our catalogue (latest acquisitions etc.) so we
look forward to see
you at Booth A16.
Some highlights include, no 1, the Book of Hours, no 34, The Pawky
Pawk's Book of Beasts, no 55, A monumental
Portuguese work on the Persian Gulf and the exploration of the Far
East, no 119, The only portrait taken from life of Philip Freneau and

166 NEW ARRIVALS await you in Catalog 64 (We know it is numbered through 167, but we somehow missed #141). We recently took in a large quantity of Christmas themed books, most of which appear in this catalog, including a rare Elisabeth Ivanovsky illustrated tale of St. Nicholas of Myra by Henri Gheon. Be sure not to miss the American issue of Lewis Carroll's Nursery Alice. We're excited about a first edition of Alexander and the Magic Mouse illustrated by Philippe Fix, which we'd only ever seen as a book club or ex-library copy. We acquired a French language edition of Grimm's fairy tales that we'd never seen or heard of before, illustrated by Gwendolen Mawe, see item #74. On our recent travels to Maine we stumbled on a stunning copy of the John R. Neill illustrated edition of Hiawatha by Longfellow. A nice copy of Jessie Willcox Smith's Everyday Fairy Book fell into our laps, and that doesn't happen everyday! There is much more to see including many signed books, Caldecott Honor books, Newbery Medal and Honor books and lastly we should mention a funny book of cats that you can read about at #28, Die Katzen in Der Schule with artwork attributed to Eugen Hartung. Enjoy![...] Read more
