Synopses & Reviews
More than a sequel, Slightly Chipped: Footnotes in Booklore
is a companion piece for Used and Rare.
A delight for the general reader and book collector alike, it details the Goldstones' further explorations into the curious world of book collecting. In Slightly Chipped,
they get hooked on the correspondence and couplings of Bloomsbury; they track down Bram Stoker's earliest notes for Dracula;
and they are introduced to hyper-moderns. Slightly Chipped
is filled with all of the anecdotes and esoterica about the world of book collecting that charmed readers of Used and Rare.
