On Saturday, I found some more great books for the stall...
A smashing The Complete Gilbert and Sullivan by Diana Bell, Quarto Publishing, 1989 edition, hardback, near perfect condition!
Betty Grable, The Reluctant Movie Star by Doug Warren, Robson Books, 1982, perfect condition!
Michael Curtiz's Casablanca, The Film Classics Library, Picador/Pan Books Ltd, 1974 (probably first edition), "the most accurate and complete reconstruction of a film in book form!"
John Huston's The Maltese Falcon, The Film Classics Library, Picador/Pan Books Ltd, 1974 (probably first edition), "the most accurate and complete reconstruction of a film in book form!"
On the same day, I also purchased a marvellous copy of Thomas De Quincey's The Confessions of an English Opium Eater, with illustrations engraved on wood by Blair Hughes-Stanton. This hardback copy is from a very early edition (1948) of the Folio Society, and it is gorgeous!
There are a few more details about the book and some examples of the illustrations on this blog: THE BOOK EXAMINER .
This book will not be available to purchase on the stall at the moment... It will become part of my personal collection!
I am still sharing Matt Artpix's stall at the moment, but it is possible that Arcane Publishing will be booking its own stalls for fairs and markets in 2014 - with Matt Artpix and Arcane Publishing stalls located next to each other but offering an even greater range of goodies!
I think therefore I write.
