Hi Gang!

Happy Spring! We hope you're finding some time to enjoy the sunny days, fresh new blooms, and maybe a good book or two.

At this time, masks are no longer required in the store; per County guidelines, however, they are still recommended.

As a reminder: we are not currently buying/trading, and we don't know when we'll resume. We also don't have a date yet for the re-opening of our Rare Book Room, but I can assure you that work is underway and progressing, and it'll be fabulous when it finally opens.

We hope to see you soon.
Dan, Lisa, Poul, Brett, and Eric (and Zeus and Apollo)

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...
Find a Victim by John Ross Macdonald. Hardback first edition in jacket published by Alfred A. Knopf in 1954. Condition is very good in good plus jacket - jacket is sunned and worn, 1-inch chips at spine ends; light edge wear to binding, corners and spine ends slightly bumped, previous owner's brief notes on front free endpaper. $400

22 IN 22
We are proud to be partnering with 22in22, a Zibby Books initiative, to encourage more readers to visit bookstores in-person throughout 2022. This campaign was created to remind readers of the value in visiting bookstores and encourage mingling with like-minded book lovers. We are so happy to support our fellow bookstore champions and we hope you will be too! Please visit OUR bookstore as one of your 22in22 stops. To sign up, go to their website then pay a visit to the Iliad!
A few issues back we mentioned a forthcoming podcast called Always Authors that sounded great. They've now launched with five episodes featuring authors like Andre Aciman, Jeffery Deaver, and Adrienne Mayor in conversation, with new episodes coming every two weeks. Listen now, and leave a review in the Apple Plus app to be entered into their excellent giveaway!
This month we have a special guest appearance from former Iliad cat Henrietta, now settling into her new forever home with employee Lisa. She's always been a shy girl (she's about 10 now) and was with employee Bob for about 9 years before he passed away in January, so her life's been upended. But she's very sweet and she loves to play and eat treats and chat with Lisa, and we're guessing she'll be a lap cat soon enough!
We'd love to include your photos in our newsletter! Feel free to send to , let us know that it's okay to use the photo, and we'll include it in a future newsletter.

If you need more photos/videos of Zeus and Apollo, or any of Iliad's past felines, please visit our Pet Gallery.
