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.
