Article/book review on flipping antiquarian books.

The principle of "buy low, sell high" is universal.

Orders of bizzness:

(a) Who found that Leica recently? I just passed the point of Mad Men where -- spoilers -- one featured prominently. Lulz ensued. Great pick-up, now Don Draper approved. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

(b) Whoever ended up with any of those fashions jackets from Nataku's epic haul, pls post fits. Post haste!

kthx,bye

Interesting read - thank you.  I've got 4 or 5 as-yet-unread books on my nightstand, else I'd consider picking up his book. Have been grabbing cheap & interesting-looking books at GW lately, something I never used to do - maybe one day I'll find a gem.

Does the tag look familiar to anyone?  I was thinking Corneliani but not quite how I remembered it.  Appreciate any maker ID...
  






I know Zegna makes for Dunhill, but I am pretty sure that is a Caruso tag.

Based on this thread I'd agree with Zegna however I've never personally seen that tag for Zegna

At lunch I found a Paul Stuart Tweed and a Southwick/Paul Stuart blazer, both mint. I also found a long sleeve Dunhill shirt that's from their golf line.

+1. That's Caruso. I have had a couple Zegna for Dunhill pieces too.

New (post 2005-ish) Zegna labels look like this.

Does not look like the Caruso tags I checked out in the labels thread (unless it was buried under the 3 or 4 I looked at).  Does look exactly like both the Corneliani for Dunhill (which says "to be confirmed") and the Zegna for Dunhill, except the drop # and length letter are flipped.  I have a Zegna 15 milmil 15 sitting here as well, and that tag is entirely different, though that may be the case depending on the line / age of Zegna.

 

One sold Caruso for Dunhill on eBay (none active), but no tag photo - not sure how the seller came to that conclusion.

 

By the way, what is the "C" length on my tag?  It's not L, R or S, and I don't recall seeing a "C" before.

Andhurst. 40R. Cotton. A variety of alternating pastel stripes.

What would I wear it with?




^^ Dig, what you are wearing right there is fine with that jacket. I dig! COP IT! fing02%5B1%5D.gif
So. I went back and got it. I've been wearing it over a Brooks Brothers micro navy check shirt, PRL baby blue linen pants and AE Orleans white bucks. I'd show you pics but SWMBO borrowed my camera's memory card and FAILED to give it back when she was done. angry.gif

I'm glad that I went back for it though.

C is short

I am pretty sure that is caruso, and the c stands for short.

+1 on picking up books at GW. I love an historical fiction writer from the 1940s, Kenneth Roberts. Lots of New England history and a freakin' amazing book called Northwest Passage. I've looked for him in used book stores on both coasts of the US and while I've found a few here and there, his books regularly turn up in my local GWs here on the Canadian prairies.

I'll pick up older photo / art / architecture / design books & catalogs - sometimes find a real keeper in there.  Oddball medical books & journals.  Have come across a few nice items in the past - 1st/1st of Nabokov's The Eye is one that comes to mind.  Anything that looks interesting I'll pick up and fondle.

I mentioned here some time back that I saw a guy at GW (a shopper, not an employee) with a bar code reader thingy attached to his smart phone, scanning books that had bar codes and presumably looking up their values on the spot.  Pretty nifty, but that leaves out only a bazillion books without bar codes or missing the dust jacket...and is sort of cheating in my opinion - take the risk and buy it for a buck or two!
