.I use it as a compliment and a form of admiration..At the A.B.A.A show yesterday I meet two old fashioned dealers ,Ellen and Nicholas Cooke, the proprietors of Black Swan Books in Richmond, Virginia It is always refreshing in our digitally enhanced world to meet with booksellers who have genuine passion and enthusiasm for the trade and the knowledge to back it up.
Here are a few items by Dugald Stewart Walker(1883-1937) which I purchased from them.
|In 1931 Dugald Stewart Walker was living at The Hotel Shelton in New York City|
when he sent this card to Elizabeth Cocke. His little hand written note at the bottom says
"and a happy new year to miss Elizabeth"
|In 1930 Dugald Stewart Walker was living at The Hotel Shelton in New York City when he sent this card|
to Elizabeth Cocke.The card was designed in 1914 .
