Well, the elves in the Cataloging Cave had just about gotten themselves dug 
out from the first snowstorm of the year when the second one came along... 
but everything is now shoveled and they have been happily tobogganing with 
the cute little elvettes from across the lake and building 
snow-gnomes.  However, before they took off, they found time to post a new 
set of books on our "Just Catalogued" pages!


This set includes the usual selection of books on art and antiques of 
various types, as well as lots of other stuf.  Highlights include-

-The tale of Colonel John Scott of Long Island, one of the most 
entertaining, outrageous and unrepentant rapscallions of the 17th century...

-A very interesting 1883 trade directory of United States shoe makers..

-A privately published 1925 study on comb makers...

-A very nice copy of Fleming's 1925 "Scottish & Jacobite Glass" in the very 
scarce dust jacket...

-A very, very nice copy of Hawes "Dedham Pottery"

-A copy of J.W. Mackail's "William Morris. An Address Delivered the XIth 
November MDCCCC at Kelmscott House Hammersmith Before the Hammersmith 
Socialist Society", inscribed by Sidney Cockerell to A. Ernest Gimson...

-A facsinating,detailed and disturbing 1853 report on fraudulent and 
adulterated milk in New York City...

-An 1876 collection of addresses by former House Speaker Robert Winthrop, 
including many on Washington and a lithograph of the partially-completed 
Washington Monument...

Plus many more "stocking stuffers"!!

Have fun!
