Bibliography Week #2

Promiscuous examples of all things book. Items in print and in manuscript, from incunables to modern firsts. Includes a Dali doodle, signed first editions (Heminways, Faulkner, Garcia Marquez), and other high spots. Plus an illustrated manuscript of a Massachusetts Ladies’ Benevolent Society, postcards from Jack Kerouac and Henry Miller, joke manuscript newspapers with original cartoons, and a one-of-a-kind hand-made stereoscope of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin.

Bibliography Week #1

The first in what we hope will become a tradition for us – Bibliography Week! This catalogue includes a letter signed by Bukowski (with a doodle), a history of playing cards, weird multi-headed dragons with boobs, and awesome chick fights. There’s also a medieval manuscript, an early Jewish bookplate, a rare festival book, Sigmund Freud’s first published paper, and a landmark edition of Homer by the Elzevir Press (to show we have a serious side, we swear).
