Twenty Seven April

Gainesville, Florida, United States

Twenty Seven April specializes in British and American first-editions, featuring the writer Harry Crews.Founded in 2020, Twenty Seven April was established because its owner, Huntley Johnson, decreed to sell some of his collection. A collection which contains over 6,000 American and British first-editions.Huntley has numerous unique items with a special emphasis on Harry Crews. GUring the course of their friendship, Harry gave Huntley numerous manuscripts and original materials. In addition, Harry and Huntley often had conversations regarding authors in whom they were interested. Sometimes those conversations would lead to Harry writing his thoughts and observations in the books themselves.Huntley now offers some of those books on this site. Some works contain observations by Harry which are better handled by phone due to their Crewsesque nature. If you are interested, please give us call.
