BIBLIO-CONNECTING BLOG PICK OF THE MONTH

Richard Warren's Intangible Inclinations 1886-1974
Read from the bottom up


Richard Warren began his blog about the bookshops of Chicago with two posts on Ben Abramson and his Argus Bookshop.  Reading these posts reminded me that I have a book that Christopher Morley found in the Argus Bookshop.  And Vincent Starrett was one of the former owners!
