Spring Cleaning


t's funny the way things accumulate on shelves, seemingly of their own accord. On returning from vacation a couple of weeks ago I started cleaning up and found a catalog's worth of fresh material. Much of it is ephemeral in nature, which might explain why it escaped my notice. Some wonderfully rare maritime trade cards were hiding in the cracks, along with letters, photos and documents of considerable interest. Of course, a few of the items are fresh - obtained in the past two weeks. These include the wonderful Arion Press Moby Dick, one of the great fine press books of the 20th century, and the four North Atlantic whaling logs of Captain Braley.


I hope you're enjoying this lovely spring, and that you'll enjoy this lovely catalog.
