‘Ordering from a bookseller’s catalogue without speaking the specialist language’, writes Ronald Searle, ‘is about as dangerous as trying to chat up the promised-in-marriage daughter of a Corsican tax inspector’. For the would-be collector Searle presents an irreverent glossary of 60 bookselling terms, illustrated as only he can with book-loving cats, dogs and insects, lady librarians and manic bibliophiles.
