The Bookseller's Tale by Martin Latham

The Bookseller's Tale

by Martin Latham

Publication: Particular Books, 2020, London

First edition. Signed by the author on the title page. As new, unread copy in dust jacket. A heady mix of history, philosophy and amusing little fancy-thats. It is a history and celebration of all things bookish, from Alexander the Great’s unusual habit of reading silently in an age when all stories were oral stories, through printing, chapbooks, book hawkers and beyond.
