NEW!––Texas POĒtrope FEATURED BOOK Of The WEEK!



“The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym” (©1930)
Illustrated by Rene Clarke
The Heritage Press Edition
©1930 The Limited Editions Club

.
I love the old Heritage Press books with slipcase, and this one is no exception. A 1930 edition of Poe’s only novel, “The Narrative Of Arthur Gordon Pym”, it is simply stunning and glamorous with it’s stark blacks and whites––from the ebony slipcase to the swirling cover, to the avant-garde print design and woodcut-style illustrations by Rene Clarke. This book displayed on the coffee table will definitely inspire conversation…at least when your more urbane pals drop in for an afternoon latte or evening martini.

"For me, discovering and owning an old book is more than simply buying an item or product or thing, it's like taking hold of a piece of time that I can put my hands on and absorb. An old book is a bit of enlightenment and warmth that I can speculate on, wondering what roads it has traveled and what lives it has seen unfold before it and around it. The presence of an old book––in my room, on a shelf, or thoughtfully placed in a stack or displayed on a table––is a tangible bit of history that has been a part of someone's life, which has wound its way through existence and finally found its way into mine. And then, at least for a while, I'm allowed to become a part of its perpetuity, that ultimately will transcend my own expiration, and pass on to another. Another who I hope will appreciate sharing its life and journey as much as I did. An old book is an entity unto itself, and worth more than the words, wisdom, and worlds between its covers; because an old book is telling its own story––with its scrapes, and scuffs, and scars––and in its own very unique way."––Christopher Alan Broadstone
