First bookshop memoir and related essays by local Melbourne author & bookseller, which was followed by his popular second title, Fossicking For Old Books. Filled with wonderful and witty bookshop-related anecdotes and book stories (pun intended) surrounding Anthony Marshall's North Carlton bookshop, Alice's Bookshop. Foreword by Janet McCalman, University of Melbourne. Contents include an introduction and 52 wide-ranging chapters, with titles such as Inside Old Books, The Discount War, The Naming of Bookshops, Buying by the Book, Work Experience Experience, Shelving Matters, Library Spy, Really Useful Books, Let Sleeping Books Lie, End of 'The Affair', Sounds Appauling, An Hommage to Maistre Bradstreet, Reviewing the Books, Dress Optional, Tips of the Trade, Selling Techniques, etc. From rear cover: "Trafficking in Old Books is for people who have a passion for books and bookshops (it will not make you rich or famous and it is emphatically not a how-to guide for making your fortune in secondhand books) - it is for thinking, feeling human beings. If you're the sort of person who delighted in 84 Charing Cross Road - this is definitely for you! Anthony Marshall has been a bookdealer for over twenty years, most of that time in Melbourne. These essays, mixing anecdote, advice and provocative comment, take you right into the life (and shop) of a secondhand bookseller". A bare trace of shelfwear, otherwise a very nice clean tight solid softcover copy. 268pp. SB-63. Size: 23.5 x 15.5cm. N° de ref. de la librería 009750
