New Arrivals: Twain, Bernhard, Used Books x 1200

In across the counter: Mark Twain's brand new award-winning uncensored 750 page doorstop, Thomas Bernard's long essay My Prizes (first appearance in English!), and 40-odd boxes of miscellaneous fiction and nonfiction, just unpacked this morning and currently piled 6' high end-to-end on the desk  Plus some leatherbound gold-edged Franklin Library classics, a really nice hardcover edition of Marco Polo's Travels, and $800 of lumber for the new shelves that will be going up in the front room early next week.
