Speaking of Books...
The Joslin Hall Rare Books Newsletter for Saturday, June 17th, 2006

Softcover? - Hardcover?

Every once in a while we enter a book in one of our printed catalogs 
without having actually seen a copy -usually the catalog deadline and the 
publication date were just a bit apart, and we want to have the title 
included. That happened last week with a new book from the Corning Museum 
of Glass and our Furniture catalog. Their new publication- "European Glass 
Furnishings for Eastern Palaces" was described in the literature I had as a 
softcover, so we were pleasantly surprised to open the package that brought 
them today and find it's a hardcover instead. I'll be writing a new entry 
shortly. If you'd like more information on either catalog, visit our Books 
on Furniture pages-

Which Washington?

Speaking of making mistakes...  we have a charming and interesting little 
limited edition, 1927 book about bookplates selling tonight on Ebay. It's 
called "Washington Bookplates" and I bought it at an auction a few weeks 
ago, thinking it was about George Washington's bookplates, or bookplates 
featuring him, or connected with him, or something like that... but no, 
it's about bookplates created for Washington-state artists for 
Washington-state bibliophiles. Not that there's anything wrong with that, 
it's just not quite what I was expecting... So, we put it up on Ebay.

We've got quite a few titles up there at the moment, including a lot of 
nice 19th century Americana, a few glass books, some hunting books -quite 
an assortment, and all start (or started) at $9.99 or less, with no 
reserves on any of it.
