Dear Friends and Book Lovers,
I’ve decided to start off each newsletter with our hours of operation, just so you know: Saturday, March 18, we will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Annex Building in the library’s large parking lot.
Next, I have a plea! Our long-time cashier, Donna, has decided the time has come for her to retire! Donna worked two shifts, 9-11 a.m. and 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., on the first Saturday. Would any reader out there like to step in for one of her shifts? You’ll meet lots of wonderful people and simple math to make change is all that’s required.
Collectors Corner: We’ll begin with a visit to the Orient. We have a catalogue of the calligraphy of modern day artist Wenwen Mao. The catalogue is entirely in Chinese and there is a full-page signed original of Mao’s work, the Chinese character for dragon (2007, $5). TREASURES OF ASIA: CHINESE PAINTING by James Cahill is a beautiful hardback in jacket featuring tipped-in, full-color pictures (1960, $3.50). TALES FROM JAPAN (1949, $2) by missionary daughter Marianna Nugent, features stories and photos from early post-war Japan. Finally, did you know that the word “thug” is of Indian origin in reference to a religious cult that waylaid and strangled their victims in a ritually prescribed manner? Although they were suppressed by the British in 1830, Philip Meadows Taylor was able to write a detailed description of them in CONFESSIONS OF A THUG (originally published in 1839 and reproduced here in a Folio Edition, 1974, $2).
In the children’s section, we begin with a book by a beloved children’s author, Mem Fox, DEAR MEM FOX, I HAVE READ ALL YOUR BOOKS, EVEN THE PATHETIC ONES, a wry autobiography signed by Ms. Fox. Harking back to the last century and before, we have THE YOUNG VISITORS by Daisy Ashford (1919, $2), NOBODY LOVES ME by Mrs. O. F. Walton (pre-1899, $2) and GENERAL MATHEMATICS by Raleigh Schorling and William Reeve (1919, $2).
In Classics, we have THE WORKS OF CHAUCER (1925, $2), all in the original old English.
For the old-time travel buff, we have THE AMERICAN GUIDE, edited by Henry Alsberg (1949, $2—New Albany is on page 491) and SUWANNEE RIVER: STRANGE GREEN LAND by Cecile Matschat (1938, $2).
If you love nature, you will certainly want one of Gwen Frostic’s lovely books of words and block prints—CHAOTIC HARMONY (1989), THE INFINITE DESTINY (1978), THE EVOLVING OMNITY (1981), THE ENDURING COSMOS (1976) and ABYSMAL-ACUMEN (1991). Each one is signed and will sell for $2 each.
Also for the nature lover, we have THE BIRDS OF THE BRITISH ISLES AND THEIR EGGS by T. A. Coward (1930, $2) and FIELDBOOK OF AMERICAN WILD FLOWERS by F. S. Mathews (1912, $3). Both are small guidebooks with lots of good illustrations.
Finally, THE ART OF GOOD BUTCHERING from Montgomery Ward & Co. (1940, $2) is not for the faint-hearted cook as it takes you all the way from slaughtering, skinning and cutting up the animal to sausage-making, canning and making soap. If you are planning to live off the land, this is the pamphlet for you.
