Shaken, Unsophisticated, Harleian Style, Dentelle. Can you define these terms? This dictionary of terms and facts is both a pleasure to read and a key reference. There are far too many booksellers who apparently have not consulted this book. In their catalog and on-line descriptions they confuse "ex-libris" with "ex-library", "uncut" with "unopened", "issue" with "state", etc. Essential reference and the best book on the subject. Bound in the original red cloth, stamped in bright gold on the spine and front cover. Complete with pristine dust jacket.. 6th Edition with Corrections & Additions. Hardcover. New/New. 219pp. Great Packaging, Fast Shipping.

About About Books

About Books (Genny and Michael Winne, proprietors, formerly of Parsippany, New Jersey) has been selling rare and OP books since 1985. Besides book fairs and mail-order catalogues, long-time collectors and dealers will remember our lengthy For Sale ads in the Antiquarian Bookman and similar magazines. Our inventory of over 40,000 volumes is especially strong in the specialties listed, but contains fine books in a variety of other fields as well. Because most of our books are stored in protective boxes, rather than on shelves, they cannot be viewed as a whole. If you wish to visit us to examine specific titles, please provide 24 hours notice and we will make them available for your inspection. Phone calls to (702) 750-2722 are welcome, but please, only between the hours of 8am and 10pm (west coast time).
