Self-wraps. Through letters and other writings, Fred and Pat Cody chronicled the joys, frustrations, and insights of their twenty-one years as booksellers, careers that ended when they sold the store in 1977. Fred Cody died in 1983. Pat Cody has woven these letters into a moving and inspirational account of a place and a time--and of two people with irrepressible and unforgettable spirit. Quote from him on rear wrapper panel: "I am a bookseller--the owner and operator of a personal bookstore. We are, I'm afraid, members of a fast-vanishing tribe. I agree with those who say that the small personal bookstore is a somewhat picturesque carryover from the beginning of the nineteenth century. Yet there are still people who are so badly adjusted to reality that they insist on either writing books or selling them. . . " Remainder mark on bottom edge. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 206 pages; 12314
