Maritime List 217


""Hors d'oeuvre"

We've been busy gathing books all through the spring and into summer, and we hope to have a catalog of select rarities ready in another month or so.

Meanwhile, here are a few appetizers. Perhaps not as filling as the main course cooking in the kitchen, but piquant and toothsome nonetheless.

Everything on this list is scarce and desirable. More than a few are unique, and all are sensibly priced.

The Fine Print

DESCRIPTION --- All books 8vo or 12mo (about the size of a standard novel) unless otherwise described.Ï4to designates a larger book, up to about 12 inches tall, and folio a still larger book. 16mo and 32mo are smaller sizes, down to about 3 inches tall.

CONDITION --- Books are in Good to Very Good antiquarian condition, unless stated otherwise. Ink signatures and bookplates not noted unless they significantly mar the appearance of the book.
