This catalogue showcases items representing
THE CORE AREAS of our non-Hispanic stock
with a garnish of Hispanica and of other rarities less central.

Our “core” is defined between the bars on our letterhead, above
EARLY BOOKS OF EUROPE
& THE AMERICAS.

SO EXTENSIVE and various is the “A-Z” here that we suspect you will find it much more fun and ultimately more rewarding to ROAM it than to MARCH through it — just as in the largest section of a physical bookstore.

Consider jumping from Aa-Al to the Ha-Hd or N-O section.
(“A” doesn't HAVE to stand for “All Too Predictable,” does it?)
