Fifty Years a Bookseller

Item #80143

WOLF, Clarence. Fifty Years a Bookseller: or, The Wolf at Your Door. Original cloth, dust jacket. Bryn Mawr: Privately Printed, 2022. First edition. Illustrated. "Chapter by chapter, [Wolf's] account brings to life his life lived in the company with and in the pursuit of great books. To those lucky few who embrace the challenge to be competent in the field, it's required reading. Rare paper requires intelligence, commitment, luck and perspective. Clarence's vignettes have created a stage full of memories against which we-who love to collect-can understand ourselves and the changing world through which our passion carries us on to the next opportunities. . He tells us his story and gracefully lets us imagine ourselves in the world he describes. . [T]he highest standard is reached and when you have your copy you'll reread it many times."-- Bruce E. McKinney, Rare Book Monthly (May 2022). New.

Price: $25.00
