Bath & Beyond: EBC e-catalogue 29.

1 December 2019
We have just issued a fascinating catalogue entitled "Bath and Beyond"!

With over thirty listings, this catalogue contains everything from a beautiful album of World War I embroidered silk postcards, to Pontavice De Heussey's heavily annotated proofs of his biography of Dickens's L'Inimitable Boz.

Our personal favourite is a tin trunk containing letters sent to a sailor, Bill Parry, by his girlfriends, family and friends while serving aboard H.M.S. Ruler. The trunk accompanied Bill on his numerous travels, and the contents reveal a great deal about his personal life! Do have a look at the listing (no. 19) for an entertaining read.

We regularly issue catalogues of our fine bindings and rare books, so please do contact us if you would like to receive them via email! Our previous catalogues are also available on our website under the heading ‘The Bookshop’, and are all downloadable as PDF files.
