Recent Publication: 'Rare: A Life Among Antiquarian Books'

Stuart Kells's Rare: A Life Among Antiquarian Books (Sydney, 2011) chronicles the story of Kay and Muriel Craddock, two of the key figures in the Australian antiquarian book trade for more than forty-five years. The Craddocks are founding members of the Australian and New Zealand Association of Antiquarian Boosellers (ANZAAB), and their shop in Collins St, Melbourne, is a must for any visiting bibliophile.

A very enjoyable write up about Kells's book and the Craddocks was published on the ILAB website in February, and an interview with Kay Craddock aired on Radio New Zealand on 16 April (fifth in the broadcast order).

Copies of Rare: A Life Among Antiquarian Books can be ordered through Craddocks.
