December, 2017

Holiday Miscellany, December 2017. Our current list really is a Holiday Miscellany with, we hope, something for everyone. Included within are good, solid and quite scarce titles on the American West, all in superb condition. Also within are a number of early California Press Books including collectible Leaf Books, a run of significant books on dog breeds, mid-19th century Lady’s Fashion Books, a few superb illustrated books, significant books on California, and much more.

Fall, 2017

Fall, 2017. The focus of our current list is the history of The American West including its outlaws and lawmen, cowboys and cattle trails, gunfighters and gamblers, Indians and pioneers, mountain men and frontiersmen, miners and mining, overland travel and trails and every other aspect of our Western heritage. The collector of most of the material began collecting forty years ago. His intention was to collect only the finest copies, with dust jackets when possible. Many of the books on this list are the finest copies available and are very difficult to secure in this condition. There is more to come from this collection.

October, 2017

Let’s not forget the complete set of the epochal and notorious periodical, The Yellow Book.
