The Post Saturnalia Blues Post


Well, Happy New Year! Wishing everyone out there, be it in the Outer Darks, Twisting Nether or indeed, Timperley the very best of luck and health in 2011.

Christmas in the land of rare books was marred this year by the untimely death of one of the nicest and most erudite men it has ever been our pleasure to know; Nigel Williams, stalwart of London’s celebrated Cecil Court book community, Wodehouse and Doyle authority and all round gentleman in every sense of the word passed away on December 24th 2010 at the age of 47. He shall be very sadly missed, and very long remembered.

About bibliodeviant

This is the journal of Jonathan Kearns Rare Books & Curiosities, and all who sail in her. Information, updates, rantings, musings and pretty pictures related (loosely I would imagine) to the world of rare and antiquarian books will be brought to you by a number of different personalities, some of whom cohabit in the same person's head. We welcome queries, comments and contributions of virtually any description, and in return we will attempt to rein in our multitudinous personality disorders and deliver wonders and joys beyond compare. At least that's the plan. View all posts by bibliodeviant
