Hi Gang!

Happy 2019!

Hope you had a great holiday season, with many books given and received. We seem to have taken in more than our fair share (again), so please note: WE WILL NOT BE ACCEPTING BOOKS FOR TRADE OR CASH IN JANUARY. We will resume regular buying in February, but we need a month to dig our way out of the 2018 flood of books first!

Also, if you're reading this on the first, please remember that we are closed today to celebrate the arrival of the new year. Regular hours resume tomorrow.

We hope to see you soon.

WHAT'S IN THE SAFE?
Have you ever noticed the big safe full of books behind Iliad's front counter? We get asked about it frequently. "Is it really old?" is a common question (the answer: no, we bought it new just a few years ago). But most customers want to know what kind of books merit storage in a safe (we think of these as the rarest of our rare books), so in this column we'll pick one book every month and tell you about it. This month's book is...
On the Road by Jack Kerouac, first edition published by Viking Press in 1957. Hardback in good condition with a good dust jacket. DJ has price of $3,95, no statement of printing on DJ or copyright page; DJ lightly sunned, some edge wear with several 1" tears; binding is stained and rubbed, corners and spine ends slightly bumped, book has a slight spine slant, some foxing and soiling to endpapers, light soiling to page edges. $1,250

BOOK NEWS
According to multiple sources like Open Culture, The Atlantic, and Duke University School of Law, a huge wave of novels, films, music and many other artworks from 1923 will enter the public domain on January 1, 2019. This is the first time in 20 years that such a large
amount of work will become public domain. This is because of the Sonny Bono extension (20 years) that was tacked onto the traditional life + 50 years for a work to achieve public domain status. What this means to readers is that we can expect to see a lot of new editions of some of these classics:

Novels
  •     Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf
  •     Cane by Jean Toomer
  •     The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran
  •     Whose Body?, the first Lord Peter Wimsey novel by Dorothy L. Sayers
  •     Two of Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot novels, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd and The Murder on the Links
  •    The Prisoner, volume 5 of Marcel Proust’s In Search of Lost Time (note that English translations have their own copyrights)
  •     The complete works of Anthony Trollope
Non-fiction books:
  •     The Ego and the Id by Sigmund Freud
  •     Towards a New Architecture by Le Corbusier

Short stories by Christie, Woolf, H.P. Lovecraft, Katherine Mansfield, and Ernest Hemingway.

Poetry by Edna St. Vincent Millay, E.E. Cummings, William Carlos Williams, Rainer Maria Rilke, Wallace Stevens, Robert Frost, Sukumar Ray, and Pablo Neruda.

Works by Jane Austen, D.H. Lawrence, Edith Wharton, Jorge Luis Borges, Mikhail Bulgakov, Jean Cocteau, Italo Svevo, Aldous Huxley, Winston Churchill, G.K. Chesterton, Maria Montessori, Lu Xun, Joseph Conrad, Zane Grey, H.G. Wells, and Edgar Rice Burroughs.
