Some Exceptional Titles From J.N. Bartfield Fine Books

By Michael Stillman

This month we review our first catalogue from J.N. Bartfield Fine Books, though it is hardly the first for this bookseller established in 1937. J.N. Bartfield is located on 57th Street in New York, as they have been for 68 years. They offer books in many fields: travels and voyages, literature, Americana, sporting books, children's books, as well as fine printings and color-plate books. What Bartfield's collections do have in common is importance. There are no ordinary books in their catalogue, as you shall see.
