This Week's Acquisitions

A few things from Commonwealth, one more from the Brattle sale, plus an order from Hamilton's $2.95 catalog (trouble-making thing).

- The Mauritius Command by Patrick O'Brian (Norton, 1991). Commonwealth.

-
Frankenstein by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley (Norton, 1995). Commonwealth.

-
Journal of the proceedings of the Society, which conducts the Monthly Anthology and Boston Review, October 3, 1805, to July 2, 1811 (Boston Athenaeum, 1910). Commonwealth.

-
Horae Bibliographicae Cantabrigienses: A Facsimile of Dibdin's Cambridge Notebook, 1823; With Readings from the Library Companion, 1824; edited, with an introduction, by Renato Rabaiotti (Oak Knoll, 1989).
