215 pp, 8 1/2" H. 3rd printing. "What started as a last resort on the quest for a cheap gift soon became an addiction. (The authors) found themselves visiting every rare-book store between Boston and Manhattan, spending ever increasing amounts of money on first editions, leather-bound classics, and out-of-print volumes. Along the way, they gained an education in books - and in people - that we can all savor. This warm and witty story is filled with eccentric characters, from snobby book dealers to bearded backwoodsmen (who just happen to have a fortune in rare books in their barns). ('Used and Rare') is an enjoyable education and a love letter to book lovers everywhere." The remains (backing paper) of two large labels on the free front endpaper, tiny dent/scuff on top of text block, very minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, small tear at bottom of rear hinge - archivally taped.
