Die Aranda- und Loritja-Stämme in Zentral-Australien by Pastor Carl Strehlow, published in seven parts between 1907 and 1920, is a fabled rarity. Our latest catalogue contains the author’s personal set of these volumes, with some 240 corrections in his hand.
But relax! There are plenty of other items to tempt you: many of them also unique, but they won’t require an overdraft. We are still making our way through large collections of Folio Society publications (the deluxe edition of Dante's Paradiso, and sets of volumes by Tolkien, Le Carré, Proust and Conrad are among them), and books on the occult (mainly by or about Aleister Crowley).
Photographs, autographs, trade catalogues, books ranging from art to zoology … the mixture as before!
