The last month or two has been busy, including trips to Europe and America looking for books and then, of course, the fun of cataloguing them when you get back. You can see a number of these recent acquisitions here, including some really great music items (Purcell, Henry Lawes, Pietro Reggio, Mace's Musick's Monument, 1676, Simpson's Division-Violist, 1659, Shakespearean operas by Garrick, and a complete run of Warren's Collection), many with nice early provenances. Also included: a rare cook book (Edinburgh, 1755), Mythology made easy (1790, only one other copy known), and a practical guide for young army officers (Guernsey, 1798).
