Dust jacket notes: "The career of John H. Jenkins in the world of books has been varied and exciting. His first book was published by the University of Texas while he was still in high school. It was assigned to him as a text in college and has been kept in print for eighteen years. In 1963 he started what are now three thriving businesses: a publishing house with over two hundred books in print, one of the world's largest rare book companies, and a nationally known art gallery. In 1971 he was specially cited on the floor of Congress for his aid in apprehending a gang of thieves who stole the famous Union College Audubon portfolio, a national treasure. This book contains his delightful and witty accounts of these events, and essays on other topics derived from his life as historian, publisher, and bookman."
