It was fun to show Mr. Jessup the finished edition of Dinotopia: Journey to Chandara. He said he’s been both sorry and glad that he sold the original manuscript to me.
He opened the glass case behind the counter and I was tempted by a gorgeous 1870 edition of Lear’s Journal of a Landscape Painter in Corsica, but I couldn’t afford it. Although his books are a bit pricey, I recommend his establishment to any serious collector who likes rare editions, especially of travel and adventure classics and original manuscripts (link).
