      Comments about Fossicking for Old Books:

      The author has complied the contributions he wrote for a book trade magazine. They are well written, sometimes funny, always interesting and give the author's personal insight in to the ups and downs of running a second hand book shop. This book is a good place to start your research if that's one of the things on your bucket list.
