Richard Booth obituary – Richard Booth Death | There was a point where the entire town of Hay-on-Wye was quite well just bookshops, with even the old fire station, the rural corridor the and film offered to Richard Booth.
Furthermore, it was brilliant tumult. You could purchase duplicates of Ward Lock’s Red Guide series at one of his shops for 50p and offer them to another for £1.50, thus finance your gathering of them. In this manner, I obtained just about a total arrangement of PG Wodehouse’s first versions for a companion.
Richard took to purchasing immense libraries from everywhere in the English-talking world. I once purchased a duplicate of Life on the English Manor: A Study of Peasant Conditions 1150-1400 for a quid. Inside was the stamp of the Arkansas Seminary library with the structure for borrowers to list their names. Just a single individual had at any point taken it out, and that was Bill Clinton.
