Los Angeles Book Fair

Not long back from the ILAB International Book Fair in sunny Los Angeles. I received online severe weather warnings most days I was there, but these actually seemed to mean it was going to be just a little bit misty or breezy. Enough books were bought and sold to justify the cost of the trip - just about. Something of an achievement given the exchange rate, and it's always good to see what books other dealers have and to catch up with friends, particularly our dear friend Judy Cohen, who specializes in books on the decorative and applied arts as does Dorothea Rota at Bertram Rota Ltd. Here's her website:

The Harold Pinter Archive

We were delighted to have brought about the sale of Harold Pinter's papers to the British Library towards the end of last year. We have handled many author's archives over the years - this was truly outstanding and a joy to catalogue. It was also a great privilege for me to have spent time with Mr Pinter and to have enjoyed his witty, kind and stimulating company and hospitality.
