About This Catalog

Here's a selection of newly-catalogued itesm for your consideration. I find there is hardly ever enough time for me to sit down and catalog the many fine items that are in stock, plus the new material that I am always on the lookout for. There are new items in every category, from the earliest Americana to newspapers of the 1960's. There is still much more to come, and I will be glad to let you know by e-mail when the next updates will be ready. As ever, thank you for your past patronage, or for requesting catalog updates. I appreciate your interest.

All items in this catalog are unconditionally guaranteed to be genuine and accurately described. They are in fine used condition and are complete with all pages as issued. We are sure you will be delighted with their exceptional state of preservation. We purchase only the finest condition newspapers that can be found to offer to our valued friends and customers. All papers are free of damage or objectionable defects.

Newspapers are full folio size unless described as quarto (abbreviated 4to) or octavo (8vo), which are respectively smaller in format. Most newspapers have been removed from bound volumes and may exhibit normal minor spine weakness without significant paper loss.
