7638663a-1553-4eb5-bbe1-e4b6e4c1970b

Eight new catalogues.

This month we review eight new bookseller catalogues. Aleph-Bet Books is offering a new selection of children's and illustrated books. Hordern House focuses on Australia and the Southern Hemisphere. Ursus Rare Books features modern and contemporary illustrated books.

 

Catalogues with a less targeted focus can be found from five other booksellers. Zephyr Used and Rare Books presents their 25th anniversary catalogue. Zephyr features many ephemeral items along with their books. Michel Bouvier has a new selection consisting mostly of antiquarian books in French and German. Erasmushaus also features many very old books, and as a Swiss bookseller, languages are as varied as those spoken in Switzerland. Whitmore Rare Books offers a varied selection in their 20th catalogue. Raptis Rare Books has a new catalogue of very special books covering a variety of subjects.
