Hi Gang!

It's been a quiet spring here at the Iliad so far...and we are NOT complaining! After the last two years, "quiet" isn't necessarily a bad thing.

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.

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...
