From The Colophon, A Book Collector’s Quarterly, Part Eleven, 1932.
From an essay by Walter Hart Blumenthal in The Colophon, A Quarterly for Bookmen, No. 4, Vol. II, Autumn 1937.
Will post more pages later.
Every time it’s picked up, bits fall off.
Back in the fall, I bought quite a few books from a collector, and am just now starting to go through some of them.
Before an unspeakably busy time that included two really awful colds, I was getting ready to rave about the rest of The Hedgehog (Le Herisson), which is still the best film I’ve seen all year. If you love books, you will love this movie. So how does one find such a superior movie that is pretty much not mainstream?
I read Roger Ebert’s review. Over the past few years, I rediscovered his always dependable opinions, and after seeing Beasts of the Southern Wild, I watched his interview with the young star. Despite terrible medical adversity, he found a way to continue to work. Rest in peace, Mr. Ebert.
