Summary
This catalogue is a broad survey of some of the better items in our stock of Americana and Literature. We think it contains an interesting array in both areas. In Americana there are no less than thirteen American imprints through the year 1700, including four previously unknown, and the first American medical imprint, known in one other copy. There are several Audubon manuscripts, a Gold Rush daguerreotype, the first collected State constitutions in English and French, a presentation Humboldt in wrappers, the first book printed in New York, a Nebel atlas of Mexican War views, many of the classic works of Western Americana, an extraordinary album of photographs by A.J. Russell, and a very important Mexican manuscript relating to silver mining in the sixteenth century. In literature there is an original Max Beerbohm, important works of William Everson, major Faulkner and Joyce items, Milton's first prose work, Pound's XVI Cantos on vellum, a fine Gulliver's Travels, and a Leaves of Grass in the first issue
