I just did an updated article about David Brown Books for
the local newsletter.
It previously appeared in TI.
Given the dollar versus the pound sterling, I'm not sure that the
prices will be better in the coming year. Watch for sales and hurt copies
and occasional special offers, I guess. Material Culture in London
was being paired with Before the Mast book for $100 for the pair earlier
in the summer.
