Maritime List 219

THE MINNOW (item #15) AND THE WHALE (item # 58)

Here is a selection of 70 items, big and small, expensive and cheap, that have come through our doors in the past few months. Not only do these items vary in size and price, they span the globe and the centuries, and range from manuscript to broadside to photograph to printed book. I had fun gathering and cataloging them. I hope you have fun reading about them.
