#98 The History and Description of the Famous Cathedral of St. Paul’s, London.  London: Thomas Boreman. $1,250.  SOLD

CLICK ON PHOTOS TO ENLARGE

The featured book shown above is exceedingly rare.  It was produced nearly 300 years ago by Thomas Boreman, the first English publisher of children’s books.  It just happens to be miniature!    His Gigantic Histories were issued in 10 volumes and they contained descriptive accounts of famous London buildings.  The text is written with a sense of humor directed for children.  (See Miniature Book News, Number 56)    This copy has its original binding and is housed in a custom fitted case of leather and cloth.

David Bryce’s Miniature Library is another rarity.  Five of his small volumes – each a tiny 1-1/16” in height – reside in a hinged wooden box, an optional add-on offered by Bryce.  There are 6 compartments in the box and the 6th compartment contains a very tiny magnifier.  See page 8 of Catalog 75 for a photo of the Miniature Library and other antiquarian offerings.

Festive holiday books are interspersed throughout this catalog, with photos of all.  Most noteworthy are Barbara J. Raheb’s Christmas Treasury, St. Onge’s Noel, and Poole Press’ Christmastide in Ancient Britain.

Msgr. Francis J. Weber’s latest publications will be his last.  God’s Signature on Earth (#63) is about the creation of the Grand Canyon, according to Apache lore, and in Whatever Happened to Valley Mills, Indiana? (#65), Weber reminisces about the disappearance of his hometown.

Over 1,000 miniature books are offered on this website.  Scroll down to see listings by publisher’s names.  Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page to see listings by category, such as “Antiquarian Books” or “Children’s Books” or “Books About Books”.  My entire inventory is not listed – please inquire if you are looking for a specific book.
