PICTORIAL MAPS & EPHEMERA: Florida, California & Further Afield... February 2018Published on 03 Feb. 2018
Greetings to those attending the Miami International Map Fair at which, due to an only too infrequent reunion of the three booksellers in the Burdon family (two of whom live in Australia), we will not be exhibiting this weekend.
Attached is a brief listing of pictorial maps and ephemera of Florida, California and places further afield. We look forward to being with you in Florida again next year.
We will be exhibiting at the ABAA International Antiquarian Book Fair in Pasadena, California on February 9 to 11 and on March 23 to 25 at the ABAJ Tokyo International Book Fair in Japan. Please let us know if you would like tickets for either of these events.
Where ever this list finds you, we send all best wishes for 2018.

FILM NOIR CLASSIC MOVIE POSTERS 1948-1950 - a brief listPublished on 10 Oct. 2017
The distinctive style of movies of the golden age of Film Noir, that genre of Hollywood crime dramas infused with liberal doses of sex and cynicism, is captured in the striking graphics of these classic movie posters. The portrait that emerges of a darker side of mid-twentieth century America makes them a compelling resource for the study of that period as well as for film history archives.
The light-hearted Gary Cooper / Barbara Stanwyck comedy “Ball of Fire” of 1941 that we include in this listing drives home this contrast…but no matter what, somebody is going to get burned...
