Autumn 2012. A gathering of books that have come our way since our last general catalogue in 2011. For the first time it is issued not only as a printed document, a format that many of our customers still insist is the most satisfying way to read about and ponder the acquisition of rare books, but also in electronic format which other customers have indicated as a preferable way to get the information quickly and at almost no cost.

Catalogue 48: Omnium Gatherum

2011. "Let the honest trader, therefore, in book merchandise, cheer up his spirits; and if his heart do not beat quite so high as it hath been wont to beat, let him be assured that better and brighter days are at hand... and for those who are watching the ebbing and flowing of chances---who are reluctant to untie their closely knotted purses---who freeze or burn as a few shillings preponderate---for such, my motto is 'Now or Never!'" - Thomas Frognall Dibdin, bibliographer, 1776-1847.
