Library Shelfie Day

New York Public Library has deemed today, Wednesday January 28, as #libraryshelfie day. We’re posting our contribution here on our blog.

Our photo below is from the Michael and Margaret B. Harrison Western Research Center Collection, which consists of more than 21,000 volumes relating to the history of the Trans-Mississippi West, including rare and fine press books, serials, pamphlets, maps, and other printed items. Subject strengths include Native Americans, cowboys and cattlemen, western military history, Custer and the Battle of the Little Big Horn, western art, transportation, trails, and national parks.

These volumes are from the Baja California Travels Series which was published by Dawson’s Book Shop.

Happy Library Shelfie Day!
