Hi Gang!

June...well, that was, uhhh...we hope you celebrated Juneteenth, Pride, the Solstice, or just being alive.

Will Los Angeles get another mask mandate? There's a the meantime, masks are still optional but recommended (we always have disposable masks available for free - just ask at the front counter).

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...
The Night I Lost My Baby by Mason Williams, designed by Edward Ruscha, photography by Patrick Blackwell. Hardback without jacket self-published by Mason Williams in 1966. Limited to 500 copies, signed and inscribed by Mason Williams. Condition is very good, with light wear and staining to gold cloth binding, corners slightly bumped, and a few pages weren't completely cut in the binding process. A scarce Ruscha work! $1,500
