Recent Additions To The Book Collection

That Kiki was quite a girl...Hemingway, Cocteau and Man Ray are all featured.


How's this for smut? Ms Carson did not, as far as I can tell, mix in artistic circles.


Another to add to the Cheyney Fontana collection...I don't know who the artist was but they're all superb.


Great cover. According to The New York Sunday Times 'Your reading diet lacks essential vitamins' if you overlook Matt Helm.



  1. Is that last one a faux-Asiatic thing?

    Was funny reading the NZ price... we switched to dollars and cents in the late 60s, so it immediately dates the book.

  2. I'm not sure what you mean by 'faux-Asiatic', Michael. It was published in '67. It's always funny to see the old prices, I agree. I used to sell books on Camden Market and a woman once suggested I had over-priced one (I think it was about £2) because it said 75p on the back. It took me a while to try and explain the rise in prices since the early-70s...some people...

  3. Oh I was wondering if the people (who to me look white) are supposed to look Asian. I dunno..

  4. I see what you mean...the woman is an interesting racial mix, but how relevant that is to the story I've no idea.
