Hi Gang!

Happy summer! The weather is warming up, the A/C's already blasting, and those backyard grills are coming out of hibernation.

Which reminds me: the Iliad will be closed on Tuesday, July 4th.

Otherwise, we hope to see you soon!

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 Godfather Family Album by Steve Schapiro, edited by Paul Duncan. Signed hardback quarterbound in leather, in clamshell case, published by Taschen in 2008. Numbered 719/1,200, signed by Schapiro. Condition is fine (with light soiling to case). $1,250
