Now that the nights are growing longer, we are pleased to announce our latest e-catalogue, Enlightened Times. Combat winter doldrums and general taedium vitae with these sparkling 18th-century offerings. The Age of Reason is well-represented across a variety of genres and languages, from figurative leading lights like Johnson, Swift, and Pascal to literal electricity (with bonus Jansenism vs. Jesuitry!).

Sometimes jaw-dropping, always eye-opening! Our latest catalogue features an assortment of medical perspectives from the late 1700’s to the present, and the images are a surrealistic delight. A fine sampling of both quackery and brilliant medical insight!
