With time on our hands during the Coronavirus lockdown, we are reviewing the prices of some of our older stock and adjusting prices of books to ensure that they are the most attractive offering in the marketplace, as it is a reality of the antiquarian market for books that less expensive and mid-level material the trend has been inexorably downward, to the chagrin of booksellers and to the benefit of collectors.  Consequently, we have slashed prices anywhere between 20 percent and 60 percent of these books we have had listed for five years or more.  So we hope that anyone visiting the site might find something that might have become overpriced but now legitimately qualifies as a bargain.

Boston 1891 Wraps Good 
8vo. 19.5 by 12.5 cm. 24 pp., plus wrap covers. Primarily trade catalogue for salt and pepper shakers, which are depicted in blue and white illustrations, on nine of the pages. Also illustrated are a doll cologne bottle, a good luck tumbler, a lemon squeezer, a hydraulic pump oil can, a glass oven door and a spiral lighter, these shown on two of the pages. The facing pages are devoted to esoteric, curious or eccentric arithmetic puzzles or methodologies. The math primer would be in the tradition of catalogues throwing in general interest features that are unrelated to the goods being peddled. The catalogue is scarce, with no copies turning up on OCLC First Search. Condition: a dampstain by upper joint or paper folds, affecting all pages, but given its modest size, we believe few would be troubled by this. A film of light soiling spread on the yellow wraps. Light age toning of the leaves. Miniscule edge chipping.

Custom Tailoring.  Spring & Summer 1917.  B & K Co.  A National Institution
3 Custom Tailoring. Spring & Summer 1917. B & K Co. A National Institution
1917 Har. Cloth, string tie. Fair 
Folio, 46 by 35 cm. 16 color plates, 17 leaves in all, printing only on rectos. Fashions from the late 1910s, depicting male fashion from the era. Usually just one or two men in the foreground, but up to four men, sporting the fashions being promoted. The backgrounds have all kinds of upper crust settings and activities going on, and here there can be other men, as well as women, in the illustrations. So the illustrations take us to the beach and seashore, the boathouse, the country club tennis court and golf course, the riding ring, the country house. Men in sports jackets and boaters are shown in many of these illustrations, but there are also men in business suits and there are two plates of formal wear as well, both morning and evening jackets from a time when there was a difference! A final color plate presents a multitude of jackets, vests and slacks without a model -- there is just one man pictured in the mix. The last plate, uncolored, shows three caps and one casual hat. Whether or not one misses these fashions for actual wear, it is undeniable how visually appealing the fashions were. The men in the illustrations are of course young, and often scarcely out of puberty, and they are drawn with exaggeratedly elongated, svelte bodies, as was the ideal at the time. (Think of Sargent portraits.) Scarce -- no other catalogues from this company found on OCLC. Condition: cover worn and stained, with gilt lettering virtually entirely gone. A long three by one inch chip or loss on lower front joint, and roughness and surface lifting at upper part of this joint. First plate is heavily foxed. Afterward, there is a light corner dampstain affecting some of the plates, and some other soiling. By and large, though, the large illustrations are unaffected and remain highly appealing.
