Who We Are

This winter brings our sixth catalogue, once again containing twenty-five items with important stories to tell, stories that bring unique perspectives to the American experience at its broadest: from the commonplace book of a colonial scholar descending into mental illness to the earliest surviving broadside for an African American office seeker; from the ledgers of a Menominee Indian translator and store owner to the only known copy of the first Dawson City, Yukon, directory; from the diary of a young New Jersey socialite to the first book self-published by an American woman; and from a photograph album documenting one of the most important labor uprisings in American history to a token of appreciation for aid along the Oregon Trail. They all contribute to new ways of exploring the corners of American history.  Our name is what they have in common.  They are primary sources, and they are largely uncharted.  Thanks again to everyone who has supported our first four efforts, and we hope that you enjoy browsing Catalogue 6.

We look forward to hearing from you.
