Every week, our members release catalogs of rare books, and collectors excitedly scroll through them in search of the beautiful, rare, or unexpected. Catalogs can be as general as the "New Acquisitions" a dealer has made and cataloged over the past month, or as specific and focused as catalogs devoted solely to an individual author or artist (like Parigi Books' catalog dedicated to Weird Tales and the Art of Margaret Brundage (as seen in the picture above) or encompass a large genre like vernacular photography (William Reese Company's latest catalog), but collectors find they learn much about rare books simply by reading through catalogs and absorbing some of our members' decades of experience and knowledge along the way.
One member has recently launched an experiement in rare book catalogs on Instagram. Follow @adamweinbergercat to find out just what an Instagram Catalog is!

Please note, this list is updated weekly, usually on Wednesdays. *New* indicates any catalogs added this week. We aim to include the most-recent catalog (or catalogs if appropriate) from members, because not every member issues new catalogs every week -- and not every collector can browse this list weekly.
