Our catalog--HENRY WADSWORTH LONGFELLOW--contains 37 select items, nearly all new arrivals, related to America's most popular 19th century poet. Best known for works like EVANGELINE, THE SONG OF HIAWATHA, and "Paul Revere's Ride," Longfellow was also the first American to translate Dante's THE DIVINE COMEDY. Highlights include many SIGNED items including letters, photographs, and books, including fine association copies.
We post new virtual catalogs on our home page every 3 or 4 months usually with some theme in mind. Past catalogs have centered around individual authors (Auden, Frost, Shaw, etc.) or subject matters (Manuscripts, 19th Century American & British Literature, Hand-Colored Plate Books, etc.). Once or twice a year, the catalog is a medley of finer, scarcer items including early printed books, fine bindings, hand-colored plate books, travel & exploration, and association copies. In addition we frequently update the site with new arrivals in a variety of fields.
We hope you will visit us frequently to find items in your areas of collecting. We will certainly be working hard to come up with the unusual and desirable books and autographs that many have become accustomed to seeing from us.
