I did well today. Scored my first real 19th Century book trade document from Nebraska. I grew up there and still have strong ties. It was a shade more than I generally like to spend on that kind of thing, but it was just too cool. It can be seen here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/benjclark/1428828067/
I also bought what I hope to be a good resource, as well as eye-candy: Victorian Publishers' Book-Bindings in Paper, by Ruari McLean. Berkeley: University of California; 1983. I'll review it after it arrives.
