Ever wonder how to be a telegraph operator? Wonder no more. These 34 recent acquisitions also include some fine 1920s fiction in dust jackets... some of the best New Yorker graphics ever... and some fine Western Americana including scarce Arthur H. Clark Company and "Western Frontier Library" titles and products from the strange (and strangely prolific) Father Crocchiola.
