Welcome back to Brian's office here in the New Hampshire seacoast! Our first dusting of snow arrived overnight, and the temperature has taken an artic plunge. Winter is here for certain!
This week among the handful of highlights, we've got a wonderful cartoon pictorial map of Miami Beach c. 1951, and a scarce 19th century New England resorts guide book with accompanying maps. If American travel isn't your thing, why not take a trip to Europe to the Paris Exposition, with a delightful exhibition guide published by Wanamaker's department store of Philadelphia, or tour London with the help of the Langham Hotel's guide to the city? If all that doesn't warm your heart, we've also got a lovely illustrated book on heraldry, a delightful miniature leather promise book, and a lovely leather bound edition of the Rubaiyat! And that's just part one!
As always, each item shown in the video can be found by searching its item number (listed below) on our website, BrianDiMambro.com. Thanks for joining us today, and we'll be back shortly with even more antiquarian items for your viewing pleasure.
