About this title: What started as a last resort on the quest for an inexpensive gift soon became an addiction. From visiting every rare book store between Boston and Manhattan--and spending ever-increasing amounts of money on first-editions and out-of-print volumes--the authors gained an education in books--and in people--that we all can savor. Part travel novel, part love story, part memoir, "Used and Rare" will appeal to anyone who has ever fallen under the spell of books.
