Reminiscences of an author, bookseller, and publisher, written at the age of eighty-eight. Colin Franklin’s newest book wanders freely through themes which have absorbed him—a lost world of publishing, adventures in bookselling, and the irreplaceable scholarly eccentrics who dominated that world a generation ago. Available in USA from Oak Knoll Press; available in Australia from Books of Kells.
