Two new collections

March 12, 2024

It's been a very long time since I have contributed any deathless prose to my bookselling website!

For the moment, this is a needed reminder, I think, that Greenwood Books has celebrated its 25th Anniversary -- remarkably -- and remains alive and well, although always uncertain in this era about the role and meaning of physical books to the modern audience. I continue to believe.

Today I want to inform all readers that I am incorporating two very large collections into my inventory. One is from the beloved professor from the U of R, Russell Peck, recently deceased. He was a medievalist and a man of many parts. I've bought a large number of his books which cover a range of specialties from Chaucer to birds to his rather unusual collection of children's books concentrating on Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast and analyses of fairy tales. The other collection, from a philosopher who died tragically young, Christian Johnson, is composed of hundreds of books in systematic philosophy, from Plato and Aristotle to Kant, Husserl and Spinoza. I look forward to your visits and thank you for reading.

Franlee Frank.
