From the Publisher- "In 1967 Richard Landon (1942 - 2011) joined the Department of Rare Books and Special Collections (later the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library) at the University of Toronto and quickly established his reputation as a collector, both institutionally and personally. He took great pride in the growth of the research collections under his care and delighted in sharing the stories of wonderful acquisitions in lectures, exhibition catalogues, and other publications. This volume brings together a selection of these writings chosen and edited by Marie Elena Korey, Richard's wife and partner in his Life in Rare Books. She also has provided an introduction on his life and writings and compiled a checklist of his publications."
