DUKEDOM LARGE ENOUGH, REMINISCENCES OF A RARE BOOK DEALER
Randall, David A.
First edition. Reminiscences of a rare book dealer over the period 1929 to 1956. With three mentions of Thomas J. Wise in the index. Presentation on half title "For Alida Roochvarg, cordially, David A. Randall, Sept 13th, 1969" and with the memorial booklabel loosely inserted stating that this copy came from the library of Alida Roochvarg that was purchased by Oak Knoll Books in 1978. This copy has now come back to Oak Knoll after decades of being in the collection of another collector. The Roochvarg Collection was sold in a series of six Oak Knoll catalogues and helped get us off the ground and into the eyes of collectors.
