On June 21, 2016 I will publish a list of 60 items related to book selling in California.  While there are a few San Francisco items, most are related to Los Angeles, and of those, the largest number were produced by Jake Zeitlin or are related to his various book stores.  Take a look here:


The link below is a list of 28 titles selected around the themes of Travel, Exploration, and Western Americana, with an emphasis on Southern California.  Take a look at the list, here:


The link, below, is a list of 18 titles issued by the Book Club of California between 1982 and 2015.  Previous owners include Bob Cates and Glen Dawson.  You can see the list here:


Paper - where does it come from, how do we use it, and what are its competitors?  If you collect books about paper, including miniature books, the following list is for you.  16 items.  


 
The Early Bird gets the Worm!  The best way to buy books from me is to sign up for the Mail Chimp mailing list, below.  When I publish a new list, it gets sent to your email inbox.  Those in the know read the list right away, because if they don't get an order in quickly, newly offered items will be gone!  Sign up today!
