Post-op: Rare Books Uncovered

Well, Rare Books Uncovered has been out in the world for about six weeks now–the publicity shelf life for most new books–so I’m sharing here a selection of reviews and interviews. I feel pretty lucky that my little book for bibliophiles garnered as much positive interest as it did. (And Michael Dirda read it! And liked it!)


Maine Antique Digest
“Bibliophiles rejoice! This book about rare book finds is a great find.”

Washington Post
“…a welcome gift for a passionate reader or collector.”

The Hindu
“A box of truffles for the bibliophilic sweet tooth: 52 scrumptious tales of rare books acquired at bargain prices by collectors, dealers and bibliomaniacs.”

“You don’t have to be a book hunter to enjoy reading these 52 tales of lucky finds…”

American Book Collecting
“…one of the finest books about books ever written.”

The New Antiquarian
“The pages turn easily, and left me with the urge to trawl through used bookstores and estate sales instantly.”
