Books galore …

… You Can Always Get What You Didn’t Know You Wanted at the Bryn Mawr-Wellesley Sale | Town Topics. (Hat tip, Virginia Kerr.)
What I was looking for when I walked into the sturm und drang of the Thursday preview was something with a story or a cover quaint and curious enough to write about and reproduce on this page. What I found was a new paperback edition of Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle and a like-new copy of Debussy On Music, both of which will be of use for future columns on Sinclair and Debussy, whose 150th birthday falls on August 22.

I have reason to remember Debussy's centenary.  Now we are  half a century past.
