    Hamlet and Opium: The Subtle Influence of Samuel Taylor Coleridge

    Sat, 21 Oct 2017 08:00:00 Permalink
    Samuel Taylor Coleridge is, quite simply, one of the most important English Poets. Full stop. He was praised in his time as a master of metrical techniques and wild imagery, helping to spearhead the Romantic movement (whose members would include Shelley, Keats, Wordsworth, Byron, and others), the impact of which can still be felt in contemporary poetry. Coleridge’s “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner” (1798) remains one of the best known lyric poems in English (fun fact: the active member of Coast Guard with the most shipboard time and exemplary character is officially known as the Ancient Mariner), and its Read More

However… Nursing is. We often have customers exclaim surprise […] Read More

    Here’s an example of the old “forest for the trees” phenomenon… I’ve been cataloging books about the Arctic and Antarctic for decades (for example, see our most recent catalog, “Arctic Dreams”) but I never noticed until early this week how colorful the covers of many Arctic books are, especially those published in the late 19th […]The post This is the year, baby! appeared first on Ten Pound Island Book Company.

    My good friend Barb seemed to have an inordinate amount of fun assisting me with manning a booth at the Rochester Antiquarian Book Fair last September.

    Tue, 14 Mar 2017 08:31:33 Permalink
    It’s been a busy month, but we’ve now returned from New York, and things should be back to normal by the end of the week.This year we decided to do both California book fairs and follow those up with the two New York satellite-shadow shows.  Gail and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results; we sold well into the low five figures at each of the first three book fairs and did very well in the fourth. For the first time in a long time, customers--to include average collectors--weren’t timid when it came to buying.  What did they buy?  Well, Read More
