The Charlie Chaplin Book

I’m starting a new feature today, a kind of experiment. Regularly (maybe a couple of times a week), I’ll highlight a recent acquisition, one that is interesting or unusual in some respect. For awhile now, I’ve been meaning to shine a light on some of the more fascinating books that cross my desk, but have […]

Tooting My Own Horn

Americana Exchange was kind enough to profile my second catalog in their latest AE Monthly online newsletter. You can read the review here.

Catalog No. Two

I’d wanted to post about the SF Book Fair (and still plan to), but between unpacking from the fair and preparing the new catalog for mailing, there just hasn’t been time.

Tonight the wife and I (with our daughter putting on the stamps) will be busy sealing them up and putting on address labels. Should all be in the mail […]

Another Book Blog?

Booksellers are largely Luddite in nature. Most have, therefore, only recently come to blogging. That said, the last year has seen a (relative) explosion of bookselling blogs: from J Godsey’s link-heavy Bibliophile Bullpen to Hugh Howell’s advice-oriented Entrepeneurial Bookselling, from Bookfinder’s and Fine Books and Collections’ respective spin-offs to the eminently readable musings of Maine […]
