Baker & Taylor
Two savvy antiques collectors reveal one of the dirty secrets of the book collecting world, the art of forgeries, illustrating how a New England forger managed to fool collectors and how many of these collectors and booksellers ignore the suspicious books. 20,000 first printing.

McMillan Palgrave
The authors of two previous well-received volumes on book collecting now regale their many fans with fascinating facts and fables about famous libraries and infamous forgers. "The Goldstones, a husband-and-wife book book collecting/writing team, follow two previous memoirs about their occupational adventures with this entertaining offering . . . The Goldstones writes with flair and humor . . . an undemanding and fun read for bibliophiles, whether antiquarian collectors or not."-Publishers Weekly on Warmly Inscribed.


Blackwell North Amer
Larry and Nancy Goldstone, accompanied by their wise and witty eight-year-old daughter, Emily, treat their readers to a fabulous personal tour of the Library of Congress ("114,000,000 books, so little time"). They also entertain us with unorthodox behind-the-scences looks at the Folger Library and the Beinecke, Yale University's Rare Book and Manuscript Library.

Baker

Nice breezy book on short stories from family visiting Library of Congress, amateur signature forger to bump up book price to Florida book fair on part-time/moonlighting sellers.
