175 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w photographs. "(A) charming account of postwar book buying abroad by the 'Holmes and Watson' of antiquarian books. After the (Second World War), Americans went abroad for European culture, food and art, but Rostenberg & Stern, the Grand Dames of the antiquarian book-selling world, went to Europe to buy old books. (This book) glows with the details of their book-buying trips abroad between 1947 and 1957. Filled with tales of steamships, cobblestone streets and dusty rare bookshops, this illustrated journal draws from original diaries and letters and contemporary recollections. Full of history and bookish tales, this personal insight into postwar Europe and the antiquarian bookselling scene will be of interest both to the seasoned bibliophile and to the casual reader." Very small area of slight surface paper loss on front free endpaper, very minor edge wear. Dust jacket is price clipped; has fading to color on spine, rear hinge and at top edge; small corner crease on rear flap; light wrinkling at top edge; light rubbing.
