Description:

Austin: W. Thomas Taylor, 1991. Large octavo, cloth-backed letterpress boards as issued (i.e., no dust wrapper issued). 158 pages, indexed and illustrated. Spine lightly sunned, else fine. A modern-day Carter-and-Pollard-like study of the nefarious doings of Texas book dealers David Dorman and John Jenkins, former president of the Antiquarian Bookseller's Association of America. Contains a great Introduction by Larry McMurtry who points out that ".For the many citizens of the peaceable kingdom of book collecting (i.e. booksellers and librarians) who traded with these men regularly now to recoil in horror and attempt to feign shock, bewilderment, and surprise at the contemplation of some pretty slippery dealing is a more than faintly disgusting spectacle. It's a wholly disgusting spectacle.". Bookseller Inventory #
