8vo; cloth backed green paper over boards. Leading corners bumped and chewed; foxing to edges and primarily the first dozen pages. A Fair only copy, But: On a color postcard for D'Agostini Winery, historian and author has typed: "Don Bernardo: Thanks for your note; but I'm sorry that you cannot attend my beatification on the Embarcadero. (I'll look for your shade (ghost). aloha, dick dillon."

Richard Dillon was a regular visitor to any bookstore in San Francisco and beyond that might yield a nugget for the project he was working on, or any conceivable future project. He would also pull any of his own titles you might have in stock, and sign them, thereby adding to the saleability if not the price. From his perch at the Sutro Library, or home office, he kept stacks of old postcards, and would fire off short missives to friends and colleagues, like this one to bookseller Barney Rosenthal. A gregarious and generous friend to bookpeople everywhere, he and his humorous touch are missed.
