An Addition to our Books on Boswell Collection

In the mail last week (ok, maybe it was a little longer than that) came a special gift from one of our sales reps. Longtime rep Cole had been prowling second-hand stores in the Twin Cities and came across a find: Boswell on the Grand Tour: Germany and Switzerland.

Well, we just happen to have a nice collection of books on Boswell (not for sale) and though we had Boswell on the Grand Tour: Italy, Corsica, and France, we were missing the volume Cole discovered!

Other books in our collection (not for sale) include:

James Boswell: The Later Years, by Frank Brady

Boswelll: Land of Auchinleck, 1778-1782, edited by Joseph Reed and Frederick Pottle

and also

Boswell: The Applause of the Jury, edited by Irma Lustig and Frederick A. Pottle.

Mr. Pottle would have been quite an event coup, no?

Thank you, Cole for such a thoughtful gift.

Right now the books are on display above our magazine section. Why aren't they in our collector's case? Well, in addition to our bandage box collection (the lock is broken), we have Stacie’s horse and horse book collection, that has been generating lots of “oohs” and “ahhs.”

Look for an upcoming post in The Boswellians about Stacie’s collection.
