Hi Gang!

Fall has arrived at last! I don't know about you, but we especially look forward to a few cooler months after this year's scorching summer.

Have you scored one of our 2022 Halloween shirts yet? As of this writing we've already sold out of several sizes and don't expect the rest to last long, so if you've been holding off on getting one, this is probably your last chance! And if you got yours already - we'd love to see a pic of you in it! You can either tag us on Instagram at iliadbookshop, or e-mail us and we'll share it. Thanks!

Happy Halloween, and hope you're enjoying something appropriately pumpkin spice.
Dan, Lisa, Poul, Eric, 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...
The Spy Who Came in from the Cold by John Le Carre. Published by Victor Gollancz in London in 1963. Uncorrected proof of Le Carre's third (and break-out) novel, bound in simple wraps and presented in a custom leather clamshell case (minor wear to case); wraps creased on spine, light staining and yellowing to wraps, corners very slightly bent. $7,500
