This is a very decent memoir of a bookseller, published in 1973. Magee was born and raised in London, and he moved to California in order to become a farmer. He soon realized that he knew nothing about farming and instead got a job in a book store. After a few years, he started his own shop, and the rest is history.

This is a fascinating book for anyone interested in learning a bit more about the hobby of book collection, be it newer or a antique. Many good recollections by the author of his experiences in the professional end of the business. It is quite well written and easy to read. Holds interest well. Much interesting information on recognizing value of books, both old and newer.
