213 pp, 8 1/2" H. "(A) companion piece for 'Used and Rare', (this book) details the warm and witty story of the (authors') further explorations into the curious world of books. The Goldstones get hooked on the writing, correspondence, and couplings of the Bloomsbury group; they track down Bram Stoker's earliest notes for 'Dracula'; they set their sights on a single lot of 128 leather-bound books at Sotheby's auction of the Paris home of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor; they try out book collecting on the Internet; and they are introduced to hypermoderns. 'Slighty Chipped' is filled with anecdotes, esoterica, and fun facts about the world of book collecting. The Goldstones have discovered new places to buy rare tomes and new eccentric personalities along the way." Slight bump to top/bottom of spine, minor lean to spine. Dust jacket has minor rubbing, minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, very small tear at bottom of front flap-folds - archivally taped.

BOOKS IN THE BLOOD:  MEMOIRS OF A FOURTH GENERATION BOOKSELLER., Rota, Anthony.
2 Rota, Anthony. BOOKS IN THE BLOOD: MEMOIRS OF A FOURTH GENERATION BOOKSELLER.
New Castle, Delaware Oak Knoll Press 2002 1584560762 / 9781584560760 Limited Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good- 
313 pp, 9" H. From an edition of 1,700 copies, of which 950 were for sale. B&w photographs, repro-ductions. "Anthony Rota, dealer in antiquarian books and first editions for over half a century, talks of the private collectors and university libraries whose collectiions he has helped to enrich over these years, remembering his colleagues in the firm and in the trade generally. His early training under Bertram Rota, and the history of the firm since the latter's early death, are followed by telling com-mentaries on virtually all aspects of the trade, including runners (scouts), auctions (and auction rings), and the problems of buying privately or in competition. As past president of the Antiquarian Book-sellers' Association, and of the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (of which he is now President of Honour), these lightly written memoirs, may be read as a guide to collectors and dealers alike, or, more simply, for the sheer pleasure of their reading." Book is slightly cocked, small area of minor fading at bottom of front board. Dust jacket has light fading to spine, top edge of flaps and 1' band at top of front panel; minor edge wrinkling. 
Price: 25.00 USD
