Blog with Cat’s Cradle Books

This is the brand-new blog for our updated and renovated website for used, rare, and out of print books.  Here’s where you’ll find news about books and authors, and about things related to our books in inventory.  Here, too, you’ll find news of “new” books added to our inventory.  We hope you will bookmark this blog and return again soon! 

Here in central North Carolina it’s brutally hot.  We’ve just emerged from a month-long drought.  As a result, I’ve been holed up researching and listing books in as cool a place as I can find.   Right now I am working through an amazing collection of first, early, and numbered editions of French-language fiction published in Paris between the wars.   The acquisition also contains quite a few Russian-language books from the 20th century, generally the late Soviet period – scarce fiction, mostly.  

I’ve also just listed some great Warner Brothers Screenplay Series titles published by the University of Wisconsin:  Green Pastures, High Sierra, Treasure of the Sierra Madre, and Mystery of the Wax Museum.  All 1979 first printings with dustjackets, each with a superb essay of film analysis, stills from the film, and the screenplay. 

That’s one of the good things about bookselling.  You never know what you’ll find in the next collection or lot. 

Look for RSS feed, email signup and Twitter notification links direct to this blog  in the near future.  If there is anything we can help you find, please let us know.  Let us know what you think about our posts, too.  We love feedback!

Until next time,

Kathy Carter at Cat’s Cradle Books
