"Life in the rare book business can be filled with excitement and surprise, as described by David Magee, San Francisco antiquarian bookseller, in this witty and highly civilized account of some of his adventures here and abroad. With lively humor and sophistication, Mr. Magee entertains and enlightens as he tells amusing and suspenseful anecdotes about the people he has encountered, the places he has visited, and the events he has attended in the course of nearly half a century in the rare book trade. (His) vignettes of the many and varied clients, confreres, dear friends and strangers with whom he has dealt are a charming pageant of human beings - sometimes eccentric, amusing or moving - always vivid to the reader." Very small stamp mark (bird) on top of text block, minor wrinkle at top of spine, light toning to edges of text block. Dust jacket has very light edge wear, light browning at inside edges and on flap-folds, one tiny edge tear.
