The shows and auctions in New York look exciting.  There are three fairs and handfuls of auctions.

 

I’ll be staying at the Hotel Plaza Athenee from Thursday the 9th through Wednesday the 15th.  If you would like to get together to talk about the present and future of collectible paper call me on my cell  [415 823-6678] or email me at bmckinney@rarebookhub.com.   We’ll find some time and a place to meet or simply, by phone, to talk.

 

And of course enjoy the rare paper experience.

Is this one of the mugshots that would have made the appraisal of the SF Public libary prisoner ledgers much more valuable?
