RBMS 2021 (Virtual Edition)

For this year’s RBMS Showcase (Virtual Edition), we have compiled a representative sampling of our inventory comprised of sixty items, ranging from Mexican cook books to oil maps to Cuban slavery items to murder broadsides.  Highlights include a large collection of cook books by Josefina Velazquez Leon, the first celebrity chef of Mexico; an archive of letters by famed Boston soprano Mrs. J.H. Long; a 1980s vernacular manuscript on tarot; Sanborn fire insurance maps of Santa Fe; the scrapbook photo album of a Texas border patrolman in the 1940s; an archival photo album documenting the work of airforce engineers in Japan during World War II; and many other fascinating and unusual archives and imprints.  Enjoy!
