About Squeeze Gut Alley Rare Books

Hi welcome to Squeeze Gut Alley Rare Books, my name is Paul Crame. I find, clean-up and conserve; interesting, unique and sometimes even rare books! So that they can continue to give new pleasure for many more years to come. I work in an academic library full-time and run Squeeze Gut on the side as part collector, part hobbyist, part dealer... Yes, I am basically a full-time suffering obsessive bibliophile. FAQ: Squeeze Gut Alley? That's a strange name for a bookshop? Ans: I was inspired by one of the many fisherman alleys pictured to the right >> in my home town of Whitstable, Kent, UK. Squeeze Gut Alley (a particularly narrow passage) was once (apparently) used as an escape route from the local policeman. Until one day... the rather rotund village policeman decided to chase a very naughty boy down the alley, and got his very large Capital Gut stuck in the narrow passageway! The name stuck and so did his Gut.
