A Conundrum by Francis A. Miniter[_2_]
I bought a book today, John LeCarre's Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. I is in the original format that Knopf published in the USA when it came out. The problem is that it is sealed in plastic, never opened. It is the same size as both BCEs and regular printings (I compared it). It has a...

I'm off to Canada in a few days, visiting British Columbia for the first time. Are there any 'don't miss' shops--either new or second-hand--that posters can recommend?

A collector's puzzle: S. by [email protected]
I am seeing copies of the Abrams/Dorst puzzle book "S." advertised for sale as "first edition, first printing." Since the edition statement is inside the back cover of the slipcased book, which is closed with a paper seal (in addition to being shrink-wrapped), how can you tell? I was in Barnes &...

Cute stunt by [email protected]
A dealer has listed a signed copy of Derek Jacobi's new autobiography on both eBay and ABEbooks. The text and photos clearly show it to be the identical book, offered by the same seller. There won't be a U.S. edition of this title. HarperCollins slapped a new barcode sticker on some third and...

Another bookfair bites the dust? by [email protected]
Yesterday, I slogged out (in the endless rain) to the Long Island Antiquarian Book and Paper Fair, now held at Hofstra University. This is not easy to reach if one does not have a car: I took the subway from my home to the Long Island Rail Road, then took a bus from Hempstead to the college. (I...

General Collecting Question by SoulBrother
