Props to Blue Willow bookstore in Houston for this display.
For over 200 years the bookshop has been offering unsurpassed opportunities to collectors and enthusiasts, from the purchase of the libraries of Laurence Sterne in 1768, and Charles Dickens in 1870; the complete stock and copyright of the ornithologist and publisher John Gould; to the successful bid in 1980 for the final draft manuscript of Gilbert White’s Natural History of Selbourne, bought on behalf of the Gilbert White Museum.

I’m really sad to hear that the Runnymede Chapters in Toronto, formerly the Runnymede Theatre, will be closing February 16th.
If you’re interested in what’s going to happen to the building, it’s going to become a Shopper’s Drug Mart, but apparently the building will be preserved. [x]
I would really recommend checking out the bookstore before it closes next month, if you live in the GTA.
