Dear Friends and Book Lovers,

 

I’ve decided to start off each newsletter with our hours of operation, just so you know: Saturday, September 15, we will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Annex Building in the library’s large parking lot.

 

Collectors Corner:  I need to begin with a big apology from our Collectors Corner manager to the young lady who enthusiastically purchased an incomplete set of Shakespeare along with a very nice biography of the bard by Anthony Burgess.  We have many, many books lurking in the dark corners of the cage for the Collectors Corner, and we have discovered the missing two volumes for the beautiful, brown leather gilt-edged set that you purchased.  Because of our error, we are offering these to you free of charge.  Please pick them up at the cashier’s table.

 

I am very excited about this sale’s Collector’s Corner with a Kentucky theme in honor of Muhammad Ali.  We have a mint condition Life magazine from October 23, 1970 with a fabulous picture of Ali proclaiming Look out—he’s back ($5).  OUT OF THE SHADOWS: A BIOGRAPHICAL HISTORY OF AFRICAN AMERICAN ATHLETES, is edited by David Wiggins (2006, $5).  Wiggins includes a chapter on Ali by Gerald Early, MUHAMMAD ALI: FLAWED REBEL WITH A CAUSE.  Billy Reed has written two books that include sections on Ali: FAMOUS KENTUCKIANS (1977, $2) and CELEBRATING 54 YEARS AT FREEDOM HALL (2010, $3—this one is signed!).  Ali himself has written THE SOUL OF A BUTTERFLY: REFLECTIONS ON LIFE’S JOURNEY (2013, $3).  For children, Newbery-Award winner Walter Dean Myers has written THE GREATEST: MUHAMMAD ALI (2001, $2), illustrated with many great black & white photos.

 

Thomas Merton, Wendell Berry, Hunter Thompson and Harry Caudill are other Kentuckians of note.  We have Merton’s NEW SEEDS OF CONTEMPLATION (1961, $2), THE SEVEN STOREY MOUNTAIN (1998, $2) and ON PEACE (1971, $2) as well as a biography by William Shannon, SILENT LAMP: THE THOMAS MERTON STORY (1992, $2).  Wendell Berry’s ANDY CATLETT: EARLY TRAVELS is autographed (2006, $12.50). THE CAUDILLS OF THE CUMBERLANDS: ANNE’S STORY OF LIFE WITH HARRY is also autographed by Terry Cummins with a foreword by Wendell Berry (2013, $5).  No Kentucky sale is complete without a copy of Hunter S. Thompson’s FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS (1971, $2).

 

Our next category is books on Louisville: LOUISVILLE’S BUTCHERTOWN by Edna Kubala (2010, $4), part of the Images of America Series; A PLACE IN TIME: THE STORY OF LOUISVILLE’S NEIGHBORHOODS from the Courier-Journal (1990, $3); TWO HUNDRED YEARS AT THE FALLS OF THE OHIO: A HISTORY OF LOUISVILLE AND JEFFERSON COUNTY by George Yater (1979, $2); FOR LOVE OF LEARNING: AN INTRODUCTION TO SPECIAL COLLECTIONS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF LOUISVILLE LIBRARIES (2001, $2); LOUISVILLE PANORAMA: A VISUAL HISTORY OF LOUISVILLE by R.
