Roy liked having "themes" for his catalogues whenever possible, and very often would single-out an author if he got in a large collection of his/her works, and sometimes if he simply liked that author himself!Such was the case here when he featured an author he enjoyed reading and felt had been unjustly neglected, and he had just gotten this large collection of his works to be able to offer as a whole.135 titles altogether for the grand sum of $4650...I didn't know a damn thing about Cabell at the time but would've paid that sum based upon Squires' own descriptions had I had it!A Cabell bibliographic education thrown in for free!Squires catalogues 1-20 plus supplement have become highly cherished collectors items especially for those of us who knew him personally; the early ones are quite scarce.I still marvel at the Roy Squires catalogs and it's more than forty years later! They are written with such erudition, humor and good taste. There was no one like him.From the Roy A. Squires archive!Fine unread copy of this scarce catalogue!
