Hi Gang!

April was a bit quiet here at the Iliad, so there's not a lot of news to share right now.

Boiling it down: we're still loving our new glass door (and chasing the cats away from it!). We're still putting new books out every day. We're still enjoying the lovely spring weather...and we hope you are, too.

See you soon!
Dan, Lisa, Poul, Matt and Sean (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...
Jazz Life by William Claxton. Hardback in jacket published by Taschen in 2005. Signed and inscribed by Claxton. In original cardboard case; includes CD in sealed pouch. Condition is very good in very good jacket, with light rubbing to DJ; binding corners slightly bumped, previous owner's stamp on front free endpaper. $300
