[2] pages (a single sheet, printed on both sides). 6-1/2 by 9-1/2. Heartman--a bookseller, bibilographer, and utopian--criticizes the appointment of Archibald MacLeish as Librarian of Congress, not as 'any reflection on Mr. MacLeish as a gentleman, an editor, and an accomplished writer,' but because the president shouldn't appoint a poet to do the job of a librarian or a bookseller. Heartman proposes Randolph Adams of the Clements Library, Lawrence Wroth of the John Carter Brown Library, and the bookseller Gabriel Wellss. Heartman suggests that he is alone among booksellers in raising his concerns about MacLeish because his colleagues are afraid that Roosevelt would eliminate book rate postage in retaliation. OCLC records seven copies. A few tears, tanning, and a bit of loss to the bottom edge, else very good. Bookseller Inventory #
