A treat for anyone interested in books. Oct. 22 2014
By Bookends - Published on
I agree with the other reviewer, that reading this account of a NYC avant-garde bookstore in the early 1920s is a treat for booksellers and anyone else interested in books. The tone is a delicate balance, dealing with serious aims in a light style, and brings the reader into a time and place nicely. Also, no one should feel hesitant about reading it in the Booksellers House paperback reprint. It's not a cheap xerox, and is in fact published by a wholly owned subsidiary of the American Booksellers Association, a nonprofit trade association that promotes independent bookstores.

Every bookseller should read it April 6 2013
By pen pen name - Published on
HOWEVER, any real or interested bookseller would notice that this edition, 1993, is published by a COPYCAT publisher, who lifted the entire book from the original 1923 hardback! Shame on you!
Real book lovers and sellers want the real deal, not some paperback for-profit xeroxed copy!
