Well, the snow has all melted, daily temperatures are consistently above
10 degrees, and Baseball's Spring Training has started... is it time to
dig out the beach chairs yet?  All the book elves in the Cataloging Cave
are sporting spiffy new Red Sox t-shirts and whistling "Center Field"
and... well, let's just put it this way- we are not overly worried about
losing any of them to American Idol anytime soon.

As part of their burst of Winter-is-Almost-Over enthusiasm, they have
prepared a new selection of books for our Just Catalogued pages!


This week's entries include a large number of antiques reference books, as
well as books on books, history, and a smattering and scattering of other
stuff,.  Highlights include-

-Han Ulrich-Haedeke's scarce little German catalog of cutlery and cutting
tools... ouch!

-a wonderfully meandering little 1928 essay on Sicilian oil jars.

-a very interesting exhibition catalog of Georgian & Victorian japanned

-a cute-as-a-button 1817 Milanese printing of Antonio Neri's "L'Arte
Vetraria", the first book on glass-making when it was originally published
in 1612.

-a scarce and interesting essay on losses to art and literature in the
Great Fire of Boston in 1873.

-a nice copy of Frederic Fairchild Sherman's 1925 limited edition study of
artists and craftsmen of Connecticut.

There's even an essay on colophons -just in case you were missing yours. 
Don't leave home without your essay on colophons...

And lots, lots more!
