First edition, first printing. Signed by the author. Publisher's original decorative card covers, in wrapper. Illustrated with black and white photographs throughout the text. A fine copy, the binding square and tight, the contents clean throughout. A paperback original (no hardcover edition issued).
Signed by R.B. Russell in black ink on the title page. A wonderful collection of anecdotes by the author and co-founder of the Tartarus Press Ray Russell. Not quite literary criticism, not quite an autobiography, it is a guided tour through second-hand bookshops (many long vanished) in the pursuit of often overlooked and unloved novels, short story collections, poetry and works of non-fiction and the treasured friendships and experiences encountered as a life long bibliophile.
