We provide here on the website a representative selection from our stock files.

We should be very happy to respond directly to any request for specific names or subjects.

ABBREVIATIONS
A - autograph, T - typewritten, L - letter, D - document, N - note, Ms - manuscript, S - signed, n.p. - no place, n.d. - no date, n.y. - no year. Hence ALS (autograph letter signed) - entirely in the hand of the writer; LS - text in another hand, but signed by the writer; TLS - typewritten but signed by the writer. Most of these abbreviations are expanded in our descriptions.

SIZES
The abbreviations (folio, 4to, 8vo, etc.) derive historically from the number of times a large single sheet of paper is folded to produce the size of page required. The following are representative examples: folio [1600], 306 x 200 mm (12 x 8 inches); 4to [1800], 234 x 185 mm (9¼ x 7¼ inches); 8vo, 179 x 113 mm (7 x 4½ inches).
