[COMPLETE RUN OF CATALOGUES OF THE WILLIAM REESE COMPANY, FROM NUMBER 1 TO NUMBER 270].
Reese Company, William:
New Haven, Ct. [1980-2009]. 270 catalogues. Many illustrations. About ten catalogues in photocopied facsimile. Original printed or pictorial wrappers. Condition varies but generally fine or as new. William Reese Company issued its first catalogue in January of 1980. Thirty years later we are at catalogue 270, and a run takes up eight linear feet of shelf. A recent reorganization of our warehouse allows us to offer a few complete sets of our catalogues for sale. In these catalogues we have issued tens of thousands of books for sale in our fields of Americana, travels and voyages, natural history, and American and English literature, with side excursions into photography, painting, and the graphic arts. Many of the catalogues are thematic by place (such as a given state), time (such as Americana Before 1700), events (such as the American Revolution), genre (such as broadsides), or reference work (such as our well-known Streeter Sale Revisited catalogues). Thousands of books which appear in these catalogues were never offered for sale in other formats. Many have found them valuable reference tools, and we can certainly say they provide an important record of the rare book market in our generation.
