Was having a really crap book-scouting day yesterday. I hit 4 thrift stores scattered over 5 miles (walked) and found NOTHING for resale. Best I could do was two books for me--Doctor Bowdler's Legacy: A History of Expurgated Books and a salty memoir of a pool hustler for the con artist library, McGoorty: The Story of a Billiard Bum.
Stopped in a last ditch Salvation Army (that's normally fruitless and that I looked over just the other day). Saw nothing new but I picked up the ONLY book that might possibly contain a bookplate and found this:
Gloria Swanson's bookplate with a gift inscription!
My first true celebrity bookplate find. Only dilemma now is keep or sell...
